Alpha Phi Delta
Alpha Phi Delta, a National Fraternity, was established as a colony on Penn State Altoona's Campus in 2016. Alpha Phi Delta is an Italian Heritage Fraternity; it was founded at Syracuse University on November 5, 1914. Since its founding, over 20,000 men have become brothers of Alpha Phi Delta. Currently, the Fraternity has active colonies and chapters at 43 school throughout the United States; additionally, it has 28 alumni organizations. Alpha Phi Delta won the award for Highest Average Semester GPA for fall 2016 out of all fraternities and sororities. We sponsor various events on campus throughout the year to benefit our philanthropy, the ALS Association. We set out to make members of Penn State Altoona better men both in their scholastic years and beyond.
Alpha Sigma Tau
Alpha Sigma Tau was founded November 4th, 1899 at what is now Eastern Michigan University. Today, there are over 80 chapters and colonies nationwide. Since the beginning, the purpose of Alpha Sigma Tau has been to promote the ethical, cultural, and social development of its members. We have two chapters at the Penn State campuses and we are currently working on getting a chapter up at main campus. Our chapter, Delta Omega, is very involved on campus. We put on events such as “Date Auction” and “Mr. PSA” yearly. The proceeds of those two events go to our philanthropy Pine Mountain Settlement School, and our national service project Habitat for Humanity. We are a smaller sorority group, but the bonds we make are forever.
