Alpha Tau Omega (ATΩ)

Alpha Tau Omega, considered by many to be the first national fraternity, was founded on September 11, 1865 at Virginia Miltary Institute in Lexington, Virginia. Alpha Tau Omega was formed due to during and after the Civil War, families were torn apart, due to brothers fighting on opposite sides. Alpha Tau Omega was based upon 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, 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.

          Pi Kappa Phi (ΠKΦ)

          On a quiet December evening in 1904 in Charleston, S.C., three friends—Andrew Kroeg, Simon Fogarty and Harry Mixson—made a choice to lead. Those three men chose to start their own fraternity. The three grew to seven; seven grew to eight; eight grew to 11. From the College of Charleston, they spread to nearby Presbyterian in 1907—and then to California in 1909. In just over four years, Pi Kappa Phi had become a truly national fraternity. Over the course of a century, a fraternity with humble beginnings has grown into a brotherhood of more than 100,000 strong—all because three men made a choice to lead.
