The University of Oregon is home to the Upsilon Omega chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. AEPi is the only Jewish fraternity on campus and one of the most preeminent fraternities in the world. They seek to create a lifelong brotherhood and promote the fraternal values that we hold dear.
Brothers of the Upsilon Omega chapter have gone on to work for the U.S. House of Representatives, AIPAC, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Milwaukee Brewers, the Portland Trailblazers, ESPN Radio and the Anti-Defamation League.
Brothers on campus have also been active members of ASUO Student Senate, IFC, Order of Omega, Ducks for Israel, Oregon Pit Crew, UO Student Ambassadors, Quack Cave, Safe Ride, UO LGBTQ Alliance, KWVA 88.1 FM Campus Radio, Relay for Life and the City of Eugene.
AEPi develops the Jewish Leaders of tomorrow by educating young Jewish men to be gentlemen and to have brotherly love and respect. Be an Alpha. Rush AEPi!
