Alpha Phi Omega

Alpha Phi Omega (commonly referred to as APO), a co-ed community service organization, is the largest fraternity in the nation. With its Knox chapter, you can form lifelong friendships and a sense of leadership while simultaneously serving the community.

To be a member, you must perform 10 hours of service and six hours of fellowship each term. But as far as requirements go to join, you only need to love having fun while giving back to those in need. APO members have volunteered locally for Initiative for Girls, Discovery Depot Children's Museum, and the FISH Food Pantry. Alpha Phi Omega
