Pledging Process Overview

Interested in joining The University of Texas at Austin’s premier service organization? The Alpha Rho Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega has recruitment every Fall and Spring semester, so don’t delay, join today!

Our pledging process is as simple as 1 – 2 – 3:

0) Find out about APO! Attend an information session and recruitment events to learn more about how we build a community through service and friendship here at The University of Texas at Austin. Free food and free friends will be available at all meetings!

1) Come to Install. The next install will be September 15th. This is where you officially start your time as a pledge in Alpha Phi Omega!

2) Do that whole pledgeship thing. During the next two months you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of service projects, participate in leadership development events, make a ton of friends, and did we mention, run the world’s largest Texas flag? Also, if it wasn’t abundantly clear, we are a ZERO HAZING organization. Everyone who completes pledging requirements will be able to join APO.

3) Become an Active Member! Towards the end of the semester, once you have completed your pledge process, you will be eligible to join Alpha Phi Omega as an active member! Congratulations!
