    The Leaders and Best, since 1865
  • What is ATO?
    Alpha Tau Omega is one of the Nation’s, and UofM’s, most historical fraternity

  • National Background
    ATO was founded by Otis Allan Glazebrook, Erskine Mayo Ross and Alfred Marshall, at the Virginia Military Institute in 1865.
    ATO was not established in imitation of or in opposition to any existing fraternity.

    "Alpha Tau Omega holds before the young men of the country an ideal and something greater than a mere intellectual ideal. Alpha Tau Omega stands for heart as well as head. It has given men a true ideal of life.“
