Belmont’s Iota Phi chapter of the ATO National Fraternity has been named a True Merit chapter yet again due to its standing as one of the most outstanding ATO chapters nationwide. The men of Iota Phi were awarded True Merit because of the chapter’s exceptional work and achievements on campus and in the community over the past year. Iota Phi is now the only chapter in history to receive seven straight True Merit awards since its founding. Of 134 chapters nationwide, no other chapter in the fraternity’s 150 years has accomplished this achievement. In addition to True Merit, Iota Phi was also awarded highest honors to recognize excellence in scholarship, excellence in campus involvement and leadership development, excellence in ritual, excellence in pledge education and excellence in financial management.
