Meet the Brothers
Alpha Tau was colonized in 2013 with a founding class consisting of 20 brothers. In the Spring of 2016, we were officially Chartered. We are made up of nearly forty active members.
Tau Epsilon Phi is a brotherhood built upon diversity. At Alpha Tau, this is no different; we accept people of all walks of life. We believe our differences bring out the best in ourselves, make us unique and allow us to grow as individuals and as an organization. You learn the most when your surroundings contrast your beliefs.
As undergraduates, it is our primary goal to attain an education. School work should always be a priority that comes first. Outside of the classroom, we believe that we should always look to better ourselves. As a result, we follow the three pillars Tau Epsilon Phi is based upon: Friendship, Chivalry, Service. Every brother lives by these three principles in an effort to improve their school, community and connections with others. Above all, our brotherhood consists of down to earth people with good natured ideals.
There existed two fraternities at Columbia University. Neither of which allowed the admission of members of minority races, religons or creeds. Ten men were denied membership for these reasons. Instead of accepting their situation, these men became determined to start their own Brotherhood. A fraternity based upon three pillars; Frendship, Chivalry and Service. On October 10, 1910, after growing interest and planning, Tau Epsilon Phi was founded. To the left is the Alpha Chapter Composite from 1911.
Today, Tau Epsilon Phi has chapters and colonies/interest groups throughout the country. We are a close and tight-kit brotherhood that expects the most out of their members. Whether it is alumni catching up, or chapters are visiting one another, brothers are always in contact with each other.
I'm always up for hanging out, going to the gym, playing pickup sports games, video games, and also just chilling and watching Netflix. I pledged TEP in the Fall of 2014, and it has been the best decision I've made in college by far. The bonds you form in this Fraternity will be some of the strongest you will ever make. TEP does
Marketing student trying to make a difference in the world and get into the film industries business side. My hobbies are football, the bar and fighting games.
I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and overall just chilling. After graduation I hope to get a job working in some form of industrial plant. TEP to me is an open environment that welcomes anyone and encourages discussion from multiple points of view.
In the future, I hope to work in a school as either a teacher of counsellor. I have a passion for molding the new generation so the may live their lives to the fullest.
Joining this fraternity is the best decision that I have made in my college carrier and I know I'll still be hanging out with some of these dudes, 20 or even 30 years down the line. I'm a commuter and sometimes I make the hour drive just to chill at the TEP house because these guys are awsome dudes and we always have a good time. You wont be in college forever so get involved and make the most of it. My hobbies are snowboarding, wakeboarding, woodworking, and photography, as well as being a "pro puppy petter" aka I work at a kennel.

Education and Math
Coming into my Junior year at Rowan University, my expectations for this fraternity and year as a whole are very high.
