Alpha Tau Omega

Alpha Tau Omega



Alpha Tau Omega was founded in Lexington, Virginia at the Virginia Military Institute on September 11, 1865. Three men came together in the bonds of brotherhood to bring the North and the South back together after Civil War. Since then, ATO currently has over 250 active/inactive chapters, 6,500 undergrads, and initiated over 200,000 men. As America's Leadership Development Fraternity, ATO places a high value on leadership development programming. Things like the Leadershape Institute, Altitude, ELC's, Congress, and President's Retreat provide our undergrads with a substantial amount of leadership experience and educational opportunities.
