Fall, 2018 | ATO Xi Chapter
Introduction and Fall
An Opening Word
Alumni of our beloved Xi Chapter of Alpha Tau
Omega, my name is Hamilton Murrah, and I am
honored to serve as our chapter's Alumni Chair.
My goal is to better connect our great current
members with the brothers that came before us.
We have a lot to share about the state of our
brotherhood, and a lot to be proud of. Our
chapter was honored with three awards this
year. Starting off, I take great pride in reporting
that the Xi Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega
continues to hold the highest GPA out of any
national chapter with a cumulative average 3.62.
Secondly, the Xi Chapter was recognized for our
general recruitment and scholarship excellence.
Finally, we received an honorable mention for
the True Merit Award. This award recognizes the overall best ATO chapter in
the country. I am even more proud to report our impact on philanthropy this
year. As many of you know, in the summer of 2017, Michael Doherty (Class of
2019) passed away. Since that time, the Xi chapter has raised over $150,000
in his honor. This year we will have several opportunities to host our alumni
and we look forward to seeing many of you at each of those. Finally, as some
of you who have already been to campus this year may have noticed, our
section on West Campus in Craven Quad is currently under renovation. For
this school year, our section is located at 300 Swift Ave. on Central Campus.
We will be returning to Craven Quad for the 2019-2020 school year. We enjoy
the tradition and foundation that our alumni have built and remain ever striving
to improve our brotherhood. We continue to recruit scholars, athletes,
philanthropists and great citizens of the Duke and Durham communities. We
thank all of you for your support of the Xi Chapter, and I look forward to seeing
you at future alumni events.
We were pleased to welcome 29 new brothers into our fraternity this past
Spring. Below you will find some information on all of
