About Us

Alpha Phi Omega is a national coeducational service fraternity founded on the cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and service. It provides its members the opportunity to develop leadership skills as they provide service to their campus, to youth and the community, to the nation, and to members of the Fraternity. The Fraternity motto is "Be a leader, be a friend, be of service.


Alpha Phi Omega develops the leadership skills of its members. You will have the opportunity to serve as a chapter officer or to plan and execute any number of service and social programs, as well as have the chance to participate in a variety of leadership development programs sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega. Hope College's Nu Beta chapter offers most positions by semester and Treasure and President positions by academic year.


Alpha Phi Omega is a co-ed fraternal organization. We believe participating in a wide variety of social programs helps build a strong feeling of fellowship. Our social activities, which include ice skating, haunted corn mazes, movie nights, study breaks, and a range of other activities offer great opportunities to expand the fraternal brotherhood. Hope College's Nu Beta chapter includes students of many diverse academic aspects, thus representing the range of liberal arts available at Hope College. Our cumulative differences are united in the pride we have for our own campus community as well as the diverse population we serve outside of Hope's campus.


In Alpha Phi Omega, you will be a member of the nation’s largest and most respected service fraternity. Our projects serve young and old, campus and community, the nation and our own members. Each chapter decides its own service program, so members have the opportunity to offer ideas for projects and to see them implemented. Hope College's Nu Beta chapter is devoted to serving the campus and community in many ways such as organizing American Red Cross Blood Drives twice a semester, volunteering once a week at Freedom Village, an independent living facility, as well as participating in Relay for Life and Dance Marathon to name a few.
