About Us

The premier, inclusive service-based leadership development organization.

The Alpha Kappa chapter of APO was founded in 1934 at the University of Southern California. Our brothers are some of the most diverse and involved student leaders on campus: men and women; undergrad and graduate students; business, pre-med, engineering, and many other majors.

Our purpose is to provide growth and understanding of the three cardinal principles: to develop leadership, to promote friendship, and to provide service to humanity. While all of us come from different backgrounds, we are united by our genuine love for community service and for each other.

Join Us

The process of joining Alpha Phi Omega works to create an environment that fosters a passion for service, cohesiveness, and encourages the new members to take on various leadership roles. By providing ample opportunities that center around Leadership, Friendship, and Service, new members can continually develop in these three principles not just into activehood, but also beyond their time at USC.
