Awesome job guys!
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.

85% of Fortune 500 executives were part of Greek life. The first female astronaut was Greek. So was the first female senator. And college graduation rates are 20% higher among Greeks than non-Greeks.
Which begs an obvious question: Does being in a fraternity or sorority increase your chance for success?

Sam Houston State University students will be returning to campus soon and are being invited to take a sneak peek at being Greek at the “Greek Life Recruitment Fair” on Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Lowman Student Center Plaza.
“We want students make the most of their college experience by joining our respective fraternities and sororities,” said Brittney Randolph, SHSU’s National Panhellenic Council director of recruitment.
“Greek Life offers something for everyone, especially those who would like to excel at philanthropic, social, athletic, and leadership-based activities in addition to their academic pursuits,” she said.
“For all the negative press about fraternities and sororities, no one else does as much as they do to raise awareness about issues that matter,” says T.J. Sullivan, a nationally prominent campus speaker. “No other community on a campus comes close in learning about issues.”
“As I travel the country speaking to student leaders about stereotypes,” he says, “I find a great number of students who, with their national organizations, are pressing for a return to the true mission of fraternal organizations — those being service and philanthropy, academic excellence and being good stewards to the campus community.”
Like it or not, the college Greek system is not going away. But there is far more there to like than some may want to admit. A student affairs administrator told me recently that for all the growing pains that he associated with Greek life, members tend to have higher grade point averages, higher graduation rates, higher starting salaries than their less-connected counterparts, more enduring college friendships and a higher rate of giving to their alma maters.
