  • Phi Tau Rental House on Fraternity Row

    On behalf of the House Corporation and the Board of Governors, we are excited to announce that we have executed a 3.5-year lease with the ATO House Corporation at Mississippi State for full use of their house on Fraternity Row. This is a tremendous opportunity for our Active Chapter to continue to grow the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity at Mississippi State University while we continue to raise funds towards our own permanent house on campus. Over the next several months, the House Corporation will be preparing the facility for our Active Chapter to relocate to in January 2017.


    Once we’ve complete the renovations and moved the Active Chapter in (January), we welcome our Brothers to stop by and visit the new location. The address of the house is 115 Clyde Q Sheely Circle, Starkville, MS 39762. Enclosed is a photo of the house and map of the location (Red Star identifies new rental house location).


    We want take this opportunity to thank all our Brothers for their hard work and selfless efforts to continue the legacy of the Alpha Chi Chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity at Mississippi State.

    Formal Rush has concluded, and Phi Tau is proud to announce that we have accepted 11 great guys to associate membership! Rush Chairmen Cody Sheeks, Dylan Robicheaux, Bryce Givens, and Bo Hargett have done a fantastic job through this process, and as a chapter, we could not be prouder. The next few weeks they will continue to be hard at work finding more men interested in Phi Tau. Bid Day was spent on Brother Dennis Daniel’s land swimming and skeet shooting with the new members.
