Alpha Psi Omega

Alpha Psi Omega is a national theatre honor society that has recognized and rewarded exemplary student participation in theatre productions since 1925. With over 600 casts nationwide, it is the largest national honor society.

The Alpha Alpha Lambda cast of Alpha Psi Omega was re-established in the Fall semester of 2014 to provide acknowledgement of those students of FIU Theatre demonstrating a high standard of accomplishment in their academic and theatrical endeavors. Members “seek a life useful” by using their talents and the passion they share for theatre to serve their academic and local theatre communities.
