Administrative History Note

Founded in 1925, Alpha Phi Omega is a national coed service fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega is the largest collegiate service organization in the United States. Alpha Phi Omega is founded on three principles: Leadership, Friendship, and Service. The Lamba Phi Chapter at Eastern Michigan University was established in 1969. In 1976, the Chaper was placed on probation for the 1976-1977 school year for the 'unauthorized removal of property.'
