Alpha Tau Omega was founded by three cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, VA. ATO was the first fraternity created immediately after the Civil War in 1865 with the primary purpose of reuniting the North and South among college men.
The Fraternity’s founders believed their effort would be successful only if members lived by Judeo-Christian principles upon which the Fraternity is based. Today, Alpha Tau Omega is considered America’s Leadership Development Fraternity, we have over 140,000 living alumni and more than 6,500 undergraduate members in over 140 chapters across the nation. These men have chosen to be brothers by choice based on their merits as men of character.
