About Us


We are a non-profit, national, co-ed service fraternity that has set the standard for college campus-based volunteerism since 1925. We have active chapters on over 350 campuses, and we have striven to help each individual member develop leadership skills, experience friendships on many levels, and provide service to others. The Alpha Gamma Phi chapter at Northern Kentucky University strives to instill our cardinal principles of leadership, friendship, and service in all of our members so they can become better citizens in their community. We coordinate many service, leadership, and social events each week that you are able to participate in.


Alpha Phi Omega creates leadership opportunities in every way. Brothers don’t have to be a member of an executive board to be a leader. Leaders exist everywhere, whether they lead by words, action, or example. In APO, we try to learn how leaders lead in a variety of ways, and help people find the style the like the best. The national organization provides leadership programs such as APO LEADS, webinars, and yearly conferences where members can attend leadership development lectures given by APO alumni and staff.


College is more than just going to classes. It’s an experience. A journey. There are trials and hardships that only your peers can understand. In Alpha Phi Omega, our brothers care deeply about each other and are always ready to help a brother in need. Alpha Phi Omega offers more than friendship, but an opportunity to create bonds and lasting relationships through our shared values. Aside from group service opportunities, Alpha Phi Omega helps create these bonds by programming exciting events and outings and our Big/Little mentor program. Brothers also get to make friends from other schools at conferences.


What sets Alpha Phi Omega apart from other fraternities is their dedication to service. Service is the guiding principle that Alpha Phi Omega was founded on, and with a service program that includes everything from going to a service trip in Florida for Give Kids the World, to helping rebuild homes for Habitat of Humanity, writing letters to soldiers and everything in between, Alpha Phi Omega succeeds in its mission to serve the fraternity, campus, community, and nation. With ties to the Boy Scouts of America, Alpha Phi Omega is one organization (albeit the largest) with a continuous history of service, and our brothers work tirelessly to maintain this status.
