2001 and Beyond "Eye on the Future"

The active chapter in 2001 is showing all of the strength and character of the very best that has come before it. Having one of the largest memberships of any fraternity at USC, the current group of outstanding young men embody the spirit we have come to expect from a Trojan Tau. The active chapter and new fall pledge class has joined in a unique brotherhood, which provides an opportunity to develop life-long friendships and to learn leadership skills that will last a lifetime.

The Zeta Beta chapter continues to place a heavy emphasis on scholastic achievement. Last year (Spring 2000) the USC chapter was honored to have the highest grade point average of any ATO chapter in the United States.  And in 2001, the chapter won an Excellence Award from the National Fraternity.

The current president, Chris Vanderhook (’99) states that the genuine excitement felt by the active chapter as the new school year begins is palpable. “There is such a genuine feeling of pride in being a member of the Zeta Beta Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. `When you study the history of our chapter and learn the many fascinating stories that have been a part of it you can not help but feel pride and a strong sense of responsibility. It is our absolute hope to continue to build on the goals and dreams of our founders.”

In its first fifty years the Zeta Beta chapter of Alpha Tau Omega has enjoyed a remarkable history. The opportunity that those initiated into the brotherhood have enjoyed will continue to be made available through the efforts of the life long Taus that make up the fraternity. Yes, indeed the bond remains strong after all these years.
