Alpha Tau Omega
Alpha Tau Omega was nationally founded at Virginia Military Institute on September 11, 1865. We were founded locally as the Epsilon Upsilon on November 19, 1949, after absorbing the locally founded Sigma Zeta fraternity, which was founded in 1937. Epsilon Upsilon consistently ranks highly in the nation for its philanthropic efforts. In 2018, we raised just under $11,000, which placed us in the top 40 for ATO’s nationally, and a grand total of $601 per man, which places us at the third spot nationally among all other ATO chapters. Our annual philanthropy event, ATO Crawfish Boil, is in its 34th year in 2019 and is the longest-running fraternity philanthropy event on campus.
