History

Seven men formed the nucleus of the Texas A&M colony when it was founded in February 1983. In the four years of development toward chapter status, the colony became actively involved in intramural sports and philanthropic activities.
Over one hundred people attended the black-tie charter banquet at the College Station Hilton. National President Harold Short and Executive Director Meyerhoff came to College Station from Kirksville, Missouri, where the Delta Omega chapter had been chartered the day before. Harry Fontenot III, the only colony founder who was still an undergraduate, was the master of ceremonies for the installation banquet. Forty-six new Phi Taus had signed the Epsilon Alpha charter which was presented to Joe Canella, the chapter president.
The chapter is currently closed.
