Alpha Phi Omega seeks to develop friendship. What do we mean by this? It is not possible to establish a meaningful relationship with the thousands of brothers across the nation or even with every brother in a single chapter. However, we believe it is possible for all of our members to develop a sense of brotherhood. Shared experiences and an understanding of fraternal history and goals provide a basis for our brotherhood.
Brotherhood is the spirit of friendship. It implies respect, honesty and dependability. It means that we overlook differences and emphasize similarities as we join together in unselfish service. It means listening to brothers whose views on issues might differ from our own. It means working closely with people whom under other circumstances we might not choose as our friends.
