Public Profile

About This Organization

Alpha Tau Omega was founded September 11, 1865 at the Virginia Military Institute with the goal of bringing men of the north and south together in peace after the conclusion of the Civil War. The colors are azur and gold and the flower is the White Tea Rose.
Alpha Tau Omega is unique in the fact that our values are based on Christian, as opposed to Greek, principles. Additionally, ATO is the only nationally recognized Leadership Development fraternity.
