Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity based on the three principles of Leadership, Friendship, and Service. With chapters at over 375 campuses and over 400,000 members nationwide, it is the largest collegiate service organization in the United States.
The Alpha Rho chapter at the University of Texas at Austin campus was established in 1935 and has grown to be one of the largest chapters in the nation. The chapter has over 175 active members, 33 officers, and completed over 10,000 service hours last semester. Alpha Rho strives to serve the campus, community, nation, and the fraternity by volunteering and planning events such as campus blood drives, working at food banks, and park clean ups. In addition to promoting the three cardinal principles in its members, Alpha Rho has the privilege of running the world’s largest Texas flag at UT’s home football games.
Alpha Rho also supports Scouting by volunteering at scouting events, running a Merit Badge University for Boy Scouts, and providing grants for both Girl Scout Gold Awards and Boy Scout Eagle Projects. Alpha Rho’s newest big event is Girl Scout University. We are looking forward to inspiring girls to participate in STEAM through the experience they have at GSU.
