"Fellowship - Scholarship - Character"


Our chapter is dedicated to recruiting both formally and informally, and we recruit students in state and out of state

Most fraternity recruitment done at KU is informal. Informal rush has no schedule, allows flexibility for us and potential new members, and creates more opportunities for one on one interaction. If you are interested in informal rush please reach out to us. We will be more than happy to guide you through the process and set up a meeting. We have members from all across the globe and over 5,000 lifetime alumni and active members. 

If you are interested in formal rush visit 

If you are interested in learning about ATO and possibly becoming a member please fill out the form at the bottom of the page so we can reach out to you.

Students, Parents, and Guardians: If you have any questions regarding finances, housing, hazing, etc., please contact our President at
