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.

The ATO Palm from Spring of 2002 had an article on two ATO brothers who were at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and survived.

That issue of the Palm has now been scanned and placed online. You can read it at: ATO Palm - Spring 2002.
