Dates of existence



UBC's Alpha Tau Omega fraternity Epsilon Pi chapter traces its origins to a 1940 student organization called theTau Omega Group. The organization broke up during World War II, but in 1946 three original members returned to UBC and revived it. In February 1947, it was officially recognized by the UBC Inter-Fraternity Council as the Tau Omega Fraternity. In November of that year, it was formally installed as the first Canadian chapter of the international Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. Its objective was proclaimed as to give an opportunity of fraternity membership to all students who wished to share in festival life. The chapter was active on campus for many years but ceased operations around 1970.
