Chartered on September 18, 1888, the Beta Iota Chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity has played an intricate role in the operations and development of Georgia Tech. Being the first fraternity on campus, ATO prides itself on it’s high standards of achievement and campus involvement. On campus we hold leadership positions on IFC, The Student Center, Ambassadors, Executive Round Table, FASET and more. ATO’s philosophy is to produce great leaders with strong character, while still providing a well-balanced college experience. Our house maintains this balance through a focus on academics, intramurals, campus leadership and social events. We continue to rank among the top in all of these categories year in and year out. Every Fall, we lay over 40 tons of sand on our front yard to host Tech’s largest fraternity party, the ATO Hawaiian Weekend. Along with our Mountain Semi-Formal weekend, Formal, Viking Party, date nights and mixers we have one of the best social calendars on campus.
