ATO alums, think back to the glory days playing pranks between Eaton and Miller or eurorailing across Europe with your fraternity brothers. After a couple years of cubicle life monotony, what if we could get the boys back together. The current E-Board threw down the gauntlet a couple years back and invited us to spend the entire weekend with them at the Spring Brohood and it was a total hit. It was so fun and impactful that they want to make a tradition of it and are inviting us back again this year.

Now don’t you dare start imagining another wimpy camping trip. Last year we did it big, and this year we have even grander plans (i.e. way better campsite, improved amenities, better games, food, etc). Now remember, this is a chance to reunite with your pledge class so pick up the phone and start recruiting dudes to sign-up.  But even more, this will be a special opportunity to invest into the fraternity. Thus, we are asking alumni to each chip in $100 so that we can completely cover expenses (we don’t want the chapter to pay a single cent). Most fraternities bombard it’s alums with fundraisers, but ATO never has. This is your one and only opportunity to pitch in. For those that can’t afford it we are offering a scholarship rate of $50. With those funds we will finally be able to afford epic games, loads of fireworks, and most importantly… good food.  To put it in perspective, the chapter normally budgets $800 for the entire weekend, so if sixteen of us attend we will be able to double the budget. Even more though, this will be a catalytic event that actually connects alums with new members, thus building long-term friendships, and inviting you to speak into these young men’s lives. We earnestly believe this retreat will be the most fun you’ve had since graduation, but more importantly will allow you to give back to the institution that so shaped your four years at Pepperdine.
