Back in the 1980’s after Alpha Phi Omega admitted females, young men got together to discuss the alternitives.  The forming of a new organization was one alternative.  Since Frank Reed Horton was The founder of Alpha Phi Omega, a suggestion was to have his intitials become the name of this new Organization (FRH), Phi Rho Eta. However that idea never took shape. Though the idea was a good one, the idea to break up did not materialize. 

In, 1993, members of the Alpha Phi Omega chapter Zeta Nu at Southern Illinois University, began a plan to create Phi Rho Eta. They began this because the founders saw no Greek fraternities that met their needs or they didn't see an "ideal" fraternity on the campus that promoted full service and fellowship. Some of the values and principles taught by Frank Reed Horton were carried over into the doctrine of Phi Rho Eta. They met opposition from inside and outside of the organization. So, on August 22, 1994 these men created Phi Rho Eta. There colors are Maroon and Gold.   They currently have 4 active chapters.

Alpha Phi Omega, On the campus of the University of Florida created a little sister or sweet heart organization called Jewels.  After the chapter became inactive they had to become co-ed.  However, The Jewel organization became a strong female service organization.  Tau is the name of the Alpha Phi Omega chapter at the University of Florida.  And now this group is winning service awards and hosting annual reunions.  This organization is now looking to expand to other campuses. They currently only exist on campuses in Florida. This is not a nationally recognized group.

LOI is an acronym for Ladies Of Integrity.  Alpha Phi Omega, On the campus of the Prarie View A&M University in Texas created a little sister or sweet heart organization called Phyettes.  On several college campuses sweetheart type groups have been banned from campus.  However these ladies were strong in service and in organization. They created Phyette, Incorporated to stay as they were.  They later became LOI, and now this group is winning service awards and hosting annual reunions and they maintain a solid relationship with both chapters of Alpha Phi Omega and Gamma Sigma Sigma. This is not a nationally recognized group. 
  


There are several campuses that either has or had Phyettes as a Sweetheart Organization on there campus. 
While Phyettes still exist on some campuses they are still few in number.  This organization was established by the brothers of Alpha Phi Omega, to help in conducting service projects and other functions needed by
