Text Box: Why join Alpha Phi Omega?
The Fraternity:
You might be wondering how APO differs from a social fraternity. The main differences are:
-We have women (nationwide APO is about 60% women)
-No fraternity house
-APO is about 1/20th the price to join
-We have over 350 chapters nationwide (and several more chapters in the Philippines)
-We are a "Greek Letter" not a "Greek" organization. We are not a part of the Inter-Fraternity Council, or the United Greek Council. 
For the most part we more closely resemble a service organization than a fraternity. Basically if you're thinking fraternities are like the ones in Animal House or Revenge of the Nerds, you have the wrong impression. But unlike a service club, we do things besides community service like conferences, leadership workshops, root beer keggers, bowling, visiting other chapters, and other fun events that service clubs don't do.
What we do:
Our goal is to develop leadership, to promote friendship and to provide service to humanity.
Leadership - Opportunities to participate in various leadership workshops, and the chance to put those new skills to good use planning service projects within APO.
Friendship - Make a ton of great friends, not only within our chapter in Platteville, but within chapters from around the state, and country.
Service - Most of all we provide service to the community, campus and nation. Examples of service would be:
Cleaning up the Campus Frisbee golf course

Teaching Merit Badges to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts

Tutoring at the Platteville teen center

Making pillows for children in hospitals

Volunteering at local nursing homes

Work weekends at boy scout camps with other APO chapters

Participating in Relay for Life

Sponsoring the Faculty Fashion contest that raises money for a different national charity each    

Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

Volunteering at the Dubuque Humane Society

Participate in Crop walk

Toys for tots

Food Drives

Chaperone teen dances

Blood Drives 

Volunteer at the Platteville Thrift Store

Trail Cleanups / Brush Clearing

Writing letters to Troops

What you do to join:
To find out how to come to one of our meetings, RUSH activities, or contact a member of our executive board. 
Who can join:
Anyone who is a student at UWP, has the sincere desire to join Alpha Phi Omega, and shares a commitment to leadership, friendship and service may join because we do not discriminate at any level.
If you're worried about hazing or having to perform service for members, there's no need to worry. We have very strict rules about not hazing. 
What is the official relationship between APO and Scouting:
Alpha Phi Omega was founded on the fellowship of the principles derived from the Scout Oath and Law of the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts, however, do not govern, control or finance Alpha Phi Omega in any way, and previous membership in Scouting is not required to join our Fraternity. 
Still interested?:
If you've read this far you must have at the very least a mild interest in APO, so your first step is to come to a meeting to meet us. We meet every Sunday, from 7pm to about 8pm, and the pledge schedules its meetings based on the options of the pledges. If you would like to join, or contact anyone on the executive board (specifically the vice president of membership or pledge educator) to get more information.
