Outside of the classroom at Lehigh, many people enjoy getting involved with community service. One of the best ways to do that at Lehigh is to joining the community service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega (APO). APO is a national coed fraternity with close to 400 chapters in the country. Our chapter has about 60 members who do a variety of service and brotherhood events together. We often go to the Boy’s and Girl’s club or Abbe Hall, which are not far from campus to play games and/or tutor their residents. Once a semester we take part in an event called South Side Cleanup where we pickup trash around Bethlehem for several hours. If you do not want to be involved in these service events or the variety of others we have planned, you are welcomed and encouraged to start service events with any other organization around the Bethlehem community. For brotherhood events we do things such as watch movies, go for dinners, and have barbeques, as well as other things. We recently had a joint brotherhood/recruitment event where we went bowling at Revolutions. Alpha Phi Omega is also a great opportunity for a leadership position. I am currently our Recruitment Officer who is in charge of finding potential new members for our fraternity. There are seven other executive board positions to be apart of. Being in APO does not restrict for being in any other Greek organization. Alpha Phi Omega is a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys any kind of community service.
