ONE FAMILY, TWO ENTITIES
ACHIEVING OUR PURPOSE
The purpose of Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. is to present a Christian alternative to the students and/or faculty on college/university campuses, to minister to the needs of the whole person (spirit, soul, and body), and to promote an attitude of academic excellence among its members.
Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. (ANΩ) was founded to fill a void in the college and university community. ANΩ allows undergraduates and post-graduates interested in Greek life to join an organization that directly encourages their Christian walk. The organization seeks to develop Christian leaders who influence every facet of society.
Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. focuses on four core values called the L.I.F.E. Values:
Alpha Nu Omega's family structure sets it apart from other fraternities/sororities. The fraternity and sorority share one name, one constitution, one national board, and the same colors (navy blue, gold and white). We are a family, and we often work together as one. Yet, Alpha Nu Omega is one organization with two distinct entities – a fraternity and a sorority. The fraternity and sorority hold separate orientation processes and manage different outreach initiatives.
Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. is a non-hazing organization. The National Executive Board of Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. defines hazing as “any activity involved in orientation which causes, or is likely to cause, bodily danger, physical harm, or personal degradation or disgrace resulting in physical or mental harm to any member or prospective.”
In addition, hazing is “any activity or situation in which prospectives are expected to commit an unlawful act or violate the Code of Conduct.” Almost anything that prospectives are required to do that members are not has the potential of being classified as hazing.
Alpha Nu Omega, Inc. achieves its purpose through various methods:
• Developing its membership – spiritually, emotionally, and academically/professionally
• Equipping its members to minister to others in their communities
• Sponsoring programs in campus and local communities
• Sponsoring large-scale/national initiatives and campaigns
In addition to serving campus and local communities, the lives of hundreds of young people have been impacted through their membership in Alpha Nu Omega.
• Growth spiritually, emotionally, and professionally
• Lifelong, national network of Christian brothers and sisters
