I recently had the privilege of personally meeting the Zeta Psi chapter of Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity at the University of Oregon. We may often have the misconception that unwanted book collections may be the largest and/or only activity for a student group any given term, but to my surprise the University of Oregon APO chapter undertakes one such project a week! According to the president, moreover, some weeks may bring up to three activities!
The APO chapter at the University of Oregon had performed so well in raising funds, for example, that they received an unrestricted scholarship from Better World Books in appreciation! I can suspect that the other projects they undertake are equally successful.
It is continually amazing what a group of motivated students can achieve! One doesn’t need access to a wealth of resources or have impressive connections, one needs only drive, leadership, organization, and motivation.
