Alpha Tau Omega
On November 15, 1893 seven men were initiated into the newly formed Indiana Gamma Gamma chapter of Alpha Tau Omega at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The founder of our house was Ferdinand Elbert Smith, Jr. initiated in 1890 into the Alabama Beta Beta Chapter at Southern University. The first initiate was William O. Mundy, and our official charter was signed on January 8, 1894 by E.J. Shives, Worthy Grand Chief, and Otis Allen Glazebrook, Chairman of the High Council. Since the first seven members, more than 1700 men have been initiated in Indiana Gamma Gamma.
Today, the Indiana Gamma Gamma chapter is a diverse group of well-rounded young men dedicated to leadership development, involvement in on-campus and off-campus activities, community service, scholarship, and generally having a great time at the house with the brothers as a way to 'get away' from the intense Rose-Hulman scholastic environment. We strive to represent ourselves well on campus and also to provide a great environment during our Rose-Hulman careers. An added benefit of ATO at Rose-Hulman is our extensive alumni network, often aiding brothers in obtaining jobs and internships as well as funding major house improvements.
