"Brotherhood, diversity, athletics, and scholarship", these are the things you will hear from a fraternity brother. These things hold true for any fraternity on campus. To see what makes the chapters different from each other, one needs only to look at its integrity and character set forth by its active members.

Alpha Tau Omega has a very active role on campus and in the community. Over the last few years, brothers have been taking leadership roles in various campus organizations. Brothers have also raised thousands of dollars for nonprofit organizations by compiling thousands of hours of community service.

Alpha Tau Omega is always looking for new members. The important thing that we recognize is that being in a fraternity is a two-way street. Not only do we see what someone can offer us, we see what we can offer them. We look for men who are self-confident, maintain sound ethics, and have strong morals. By joining ATO individuals will gain a positive network of friends who will help them out through out their college career. At a local level, members of Alpha Tau Omega enjoy benefits such as road trips, intramural teams, and socials with sororities. At a national level members are offered leadership conferences and development programs, discounts through IBM and Kaplan, career placement opportunities, over $250,000 in scholarships, and a common bond with more than 181,000 initiates over the world.
