Alpha Phi Omega

Gamma Chapter at Cornell University

Sherell Farmer ’22

Seeing and getting to meet all the new pledges each semester keeps me excited about APO! With each pledge comes a new story, a new friend and a new and unique affinity for service. I balance APO with my school work and extracurricular activities by using my google calendar ruthlessly! Every time I sign up for an event on docubro, I add it to my calendar and make sure it doesn’t conflict with any of my other meetings and that I am still left with time for both school and personal time. Time management is everything and with it, I can enjoy full participation in the brotherhood! Going forward, I plan to pursue a career that will allow me to address systematic issues in our nations. APO has shown me the way that service is an instrumental method of doing that and I will thus endeavor to incorporate direct service work in my professional career going forward.
