Student Organizations

Below are student organizations at Allegheny whose primary focus is community service and building bridges between the college and Crawford County.

Alpha Phi Omega (APO): A national co-ed service fraternity, APO is committed to the principles of leadership, fellowship, and service. APO’s chapter has served the Allegheny and Meadville community for 35 years. The organization hosts blood drives, an annual holiday party for Big Brothers and Sisters, and does many other service projects during the school year.

Circle K: The local college chapter of an International service organization affiliated with Kiwanis International. Their motto is, “Help yourself through helping others!”

Habitat for Humanity: A student organization that works closely with the affiliate in Meadville to provide decent housing for those in need. Allegheny volunteers build access ramps, paint homes, and do other repair projects most Saturdays. This group has been fundraising for a Habitat house to be built for a family right here in Meadville, a long-term project that may lead to construction beginning in 2003. No construction skills are necessary to volunteer.
