A better question is: WHY NOT?
Oklahoma State's ATO chapter is recognized year-in and year-out at both the university and national levels. In 2014, ATO Nationals named us the best ATO chapter in the country, and in 2015, we followed that honor up by bringing home the runner-up trophy. That same year, the National Interfraternity Council (the primary governing body for almost every national fraternity in the nation) awarded us the NIC Chapter Award of Distinction - an honor reserved for the top 10 chapters of ANY fraternity anywhere in the country.
On campus, ATOs set themselves apart from the pack in the classroom, on the intramural fields, and in their involvement in the Stillwater community. Out of of over 25 fraternities on campus, we consistenly place in the top 5 in grades, and our most recently initiated pledge class was among the very best, taking 3rd place out of all undergraduate chapters. Our average GPA never fails to exceed both the all-fraternity and all-university averages. Last fall, we took 2nd place in the overall intramural rankings, and Gatorfest (our annual philanthropy event) raised over $14,000 for the local YMCA.
In addition to being a place where you can thrive academically, athletically, and philanthrophically, ATO is a place where you'll make some of the best memories of your life. Whether it's at a date party, on a brotherhood retreat, in another city at formal, or just spending the weekend with your brothers, your experiences as an ATO will stay with you forever.
If you didn't attend Greek Discovery Day or haven't been contacted by your area's recruitment chair, you can register alternatively for recruitment here. In the message section please include your GPA, Hobbies, and tell us a little about yourself.

ATO ACTIVES NATIONAL PROGRAMS
Alpha Tau Omega is known as America's Leadership Development Fraternity because of our strong emphasis on preparing our members to be leaders on their campus and in the community. Over the past year, ATO donated more than the equivalent of $8.1 million to philanthropies and communities, holding true to the creed of ATO: “to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world.”
We believe that members should have the opportunity to grow as individual leaders and create their own college experience. To accomplish this, the National Fraternity hosts several programs and that promote and recognize strong leadership development.
