Alpha Tau Omega Returns to Georgia State
Greek Life is pleased to announce Alpha Tau Omega as the newest colony at Georgia State University! The group officially became a colony on the evening of Monday, November 14, 2016, inducting 44 gentlemen into their Alpha class.
Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity (ATO) was founded on September 11, 1865 to help heal the wounds of both the North and the South caused by the Civil War. Today, ATO ranks among the top 10 national fraternities for number of chapters and total number of members. They have in excess of 250 active and inactive chapters with more than 220,000 initiated members and currently over 9,500 active undergraduate members. ATO was founded by Otis Allan Glazebrook, Erskine Mayo Ross and Alfred Marshall at the Virginia Military Institute and was established not in imitation of or in opposition to any existing fraternity. ATO was founded upon brotherly love, with Christian principles, rather than Greek, as the cornerstones of the fraternity.
Alpha Tau Omega is America’s Leadership Development Fraternity™, due to their many national supported leadership programs available to all undergraduate members. Each program offers exposure to a different aspect or area of leadership. Here are the programs they offer:
- Signature Events: Community Leadership
- Presidents Retreat: Executive Leadership
- Emerging Leaders Conference: Organizational Leadership

Greek Life is excited to welcome Alpha Tau Omega to Georgia State University. They will be a valuable addition to the Greek Community and campus as a whole. Welcome, gentlemen!
