Founded in 1902, Phi Alpha Tau is the nation’s oldest professional communicative arts fraternity. We are based out of Emerson College in downtown Boston, and our brothers are among the brightest students within the School of the Arts and the School of Communications. Tau is not a residential fraternity, though we view our bond of brotherhood as a lifelong commitment. We encourage you to learn more about us through this website.
