Alpha Phi Omega is kicking off its rush week Monday Jan. 26 for the spring 2015 semester.

APO is a national co-ed fraternity with its roots in the Boy Scouts of America.

It focuses on community service and projects such as Operation Christmas Child, canned food drives for the Backpack Program and Facing Hunger Food Bank, and helping with city wide cleanups and restorations.

Chapter President Caroline Altizer said she likes the direct impact the fraternity has on the community.

“You can just drive through our city and see the direct impact, just a couple of hours on a Sunday morning, can have to the area,” Altizer said.

We are open to absolutely anyone who is wanting to join or who wants to get involved.”

APO will cook dinner Monday for the Barboursville Volunteer Fire Department, they will have an informational 8 p.m. Tuesday in Harris Hall 134 and game night Wednesday in the Memorial Student Center.

Public Relations Coordinator Ashley Prichard said APO is a diverse group of students.

“We are open to absolutely anyone who is wanting to join or who wants to get involved,” Prichard said.

APO members will have a table in the MSC with more information on the organization and a complete schedule of their events for the week.
