History of the Chapter

Posted on by

The Tau Pi chapter of the AEPi fraternity first came to the William and Mary campus in 2001, and was officially recognized as a fully independent chapter in 2007. In 2013 we settled into the house that we now call home.

“[Since I was a freshman, this chapter has] definitely become a more outward focused organization. While brotherhood is still important, there’s a greater emphasis on being a part of the larger W&M community… For instance, being on IFC, taking AXO to homecoming, generally just being more involved with sororities and other groups on campus.”

The AEPi fraternity itself was founded in 1913 at New York University by the Immortal Eleven:

David K. Schafer
Isador M. Glazer
Herman L. Kraus
Arthur E. Leopold
Benjamin M. Meyer
