When I pledged APO my Sophomore year, I was extremely shy. I barely spoke during group interactions and was too scared to go to events by myself. I joined APO as I had always been involved in community service and was struggling to find this at Cornell. As time passed, I made friends and became more confident in meeting new people, and eventually found my home here. Through my big and one of my siblings, I was encouraged to go to more events, and felt extremely supported and loved. Today I find myself an active member of the brotherhood. While I joined solely for the service aspect at first, I would be lying if I didn’t say that I found some of my best friends for life through this organization. I can’t imagine my college experience without APO.
