Alpha Phi Delta (ΑΦΔ), commonly referred to as APD, is a Greek social fraternity that evolved from an exclusive Italian society (Il Circolo Italiano) at Syracuse University in 1914. There were seven founding members who strove to create a brotherhood that would last long after their college days. Soon after founding, Alpha Phi Delta spread from Syracuse and became a National Fraternity. Alpha Phi Delta is traditionally an Italian-American heritage Fraternity; however, since September 2, 1965 it has welcomed young men of all racial backgrounds to join in its one of a kind brotherhood.
The fraternity has more than 20,000 lifelong members.
Alpha Phi Delta is also the top represented fraternity in the New York City Tri-State Area, and among the top on the East coast.
