New Student Organization on Campus

A new fraternity will become one of the newest student organizations at Arkansas Tech.  The fraternity Alpha Tau Omega will host a colonization ceremony at Arkansas Tech University this evening.

The ceremony will take place at 9 p.m. in the Doc Bryan Student Services Building Lecture Hall.  Cindy Tesch, coordinator of  Greek life and student organizations, says the ceremony is open for those who would like to attend.

Alpha Tau Omega was founded in 1865 at the Virginia Military Institute, and the group focuses on leadership development of its members.  Visit the Alpha Tau Omega website.

During tonight’s event, officials from the national office of Alpha Tau Omega will be on hand to visit with those involved in the ceremony.

Tesch says the new fraternity will provide more opportunities for Arkansas Tech students to get involved.

“Our goal at Arkansas Tech is to provide a variety of organizations for our students to participate in, and I believe this fraternity will help fulfill that purpose,” adds Tesch.  “Studies show students who get involved in campus life are more successful.  We want to provide numerous student organizations for our students to accommodate their wide variety of interests.”
