    Alpha Psi Omega is a nationally recognized honor society for students with an interest in theatre. Being a part of Alpha Psi Omega is more than just finding people who have a common interest; it is a group of people who love and support the performing and technical arts. We, the members of Alpha Psi Omega, are continuously working to discover innovative methods of performances and skill, studying and understanding classic and modern theatre, and supporting the work of our peers.
