Alpha Phi Delta (ΑΦΔ), commonly referred to as APD, is a Greek social fraternity that evolved from an exclusive Italian society initially known as Il Circolo Italiano at Syracuse University in 1914.

Seven founding members strove to create a brotherhood that would last long after their college days. They were Brother Cesidio A. Guarini, Brother Ferdinand F. DiBartolo, Brother Anthony T. Frascati, Brother Nicholas Frunzi, Brother Otto Gelormini, Brother Dominic T. Ciolli, and Brother Joseph Cangiamila.

Soon after its 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.

After the creation of the Alpha Chapter at Syracuse University, Nicholas Frunzi transferred to Columbia University in 1916. He became friends with the brothers of a fraternity that had similar values as Alpha Phi Delta, Sigma Gamma Phi. After convincing the founding fathers of Sigma Gamma Phi to merge, Columbia University became the Beta Chapter of Alpha Phi Delta, hence becoming a national fraternity. As time passed the fraternity grew bigger. Unfortunately, a lot of chapters have been shut down due to inactivity. So far the fraternity has around +40 collegiate chapters. In 2015, the fraternity reached 20,000 lifelong members.[1]
