Many organizations are available to encourage High Point University students’ involvement with community service and outreach. Additionally, the following organizations are dedicated to service.
Additionally, many of the religiously affiliated organizations on High Point’s campus actively participate in community service.
Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity on campus. It is a non-Greek fraternity that stresses leadership, friendship and service. The organization’s service program is divided into four sections: service to the fraternity, service to the school, service to the community and service to the nation. It offers a wide range of service projects, including cooking dinner at the Open Door Shelter, working adoption days at the animal shelter, working at the Salvation Army, assisting the Red Cross at blood drives and sponsoring other on-campus events, including exam breaks for fellow students.
Alpha Phi Omega is also a great way to meet people. They sponsor several fellowship projects each semester, including hockey games, trips to the N.C. Zoo, bowling and movie nights. Members of Alpha Phi Omega form a close brotherhood that enjoys going out and having fun, as well as pursuit of the primary goal of service to the community.
Faculty advisor: Dr. Charlie Warde (841-9119).

High Point University is proud to hold the charter for one of the nation’s first student chapters of Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry which seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. People of all backgrounds, races and religions are invited to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
All students and other campus organizations are invited and encouraged to become involved in this worthwhile humanitarian initiative.
