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.

These are the words we live by at ATO. They give the brothers the drive and motivation to do great things everyday. It serves as a reminder that brotherhood is one of the strongest tenants of our organization. To accept men for who they are is the purest form of brotherhood, and then also support them through their hardest times. To always support the betterment of the brotherhood through the actions towards each other and those not in our organization with the same respect. Minimize conflict by understanding differences and improving one another through those differences. Trough these words and the support of brotherhood, the men of ATO can become the greatest version of themselves.
