What does Friendship mean to APO?
Friendship is another one of the core principles of Alpha Phi Omega. Friendship is not based solely on pledge classes and titles. Rather, friendship within Alpha Phi Omega is defined by Brotherhood. Brotherhood is the shared link between each & every member of APO. Whether you're pledging as a first year or a fourth year, a transfer student or a grad student, Brotherhood uniquely positions the Brothers of our chapter to form lasting bonds & create unforgettable experiences with one another, disregarding antiquated barriers such as age or class standing.
What does Friendship look like in APO?
The fraternal values of love & respect for one another are what guide the unforgettable experiences we create as Brothers. Our fellowship events come in many different shapes & sizes, but the one common tie among them is the ability to branch out, meet new people, & enjoy life together. From trying new coffee shops & food places, to chilling at the beach & playing games, to enduring late-night studying & having heart-to-hearts - our wide range of fellowship events are sure to cater to every person's desires.
MESSAGE FROM THE FELLOWSHIP VICE PRESIDENT
My name is Sherry Haque and I am the Fellowship Vice President for the Spring 2019 semester. Fellowship is one of our 3 cardinal principles and to me it is the most important. It is on the basis of friendship that service and leadership are able to thrive. While service and leadership are important and vital principles on their own, they become all the more memorable and enjoyable when you do them with your friends. Creating an environment where all Brothers of Alpha Phi Omega are there for each other, without the barriers among different pledge classes, is a goal I am striving towards this semester. Bringing back fellowship events that are traditional to our chapter & putting a new twist on them is another one of my goals for the semester!
