September 11

The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity was founded on September 11, 1865. On September 11, 2001 two ATOs lost their lives in the Twin Towers. Today is a good day to re-read and reflect upon our creed.


The Creed of Alpha Tau Omega

To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong as right itself and as lasting as humanity; to know no North, no South, no East, no West, but to know man as man, to teach that true men the world over should stand together and contend for supremacy of good over evil; to teach, not politics, but morals; to foster, not partisanship, but the recognition of true merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world: these were the thoughts and hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.

Vote for your Bro!

I have as of today I have become a Deputy Voter Registrar for Walker County. I have already gotten over 50 students to register to vote for the November elections here in Huntsville. I have taken the task upon myself to ensure that brother Woodward has the most support possible from the student body here at SHSU. I am also in the process of getting a booth set up on campus Monday morning-afternoon to persuade the student body to become registered voters. I am setting a personal goal of getting 200 able body voters registered by this Tuesday Oct. 11.

Vote for Brother Woodward!

Love and respect,
Shane Rankin

TAU's TIMES - February 2011


On Saturday February, 5th the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at SHSU had their annual Bid Day Festival.

This year the Tau’s started it off right with kegs and eggs. After-wards, all the brothers went to the LSC Ballroom to find out who the new guys were. We received 3 new guys this Spring, Winston Watts, Poncho Serna, and Trent Rojas. After the loudest Ruh Rah Raga, that has ever been shouted in the walls of the LSC, the brothers all went to the Tau’s pride and joy; the ATO Lodge.

Here the brothers had a relaxing day Barbequing, playing horseshoes, and dancing to Michael Jackson with the girls and sweetheart. That night all the brothers went to the Jolly Fox to dance and celebrate the end of a great day!
