Theta Tau is the nations oldest and largest engineering fraternity, founded at the University of Minnesota in 1904. Over 30,000 students have been initiated over the years to join the mission to develop engineering leaders for service, profession and brotherhood. Marshall’s colony was initiated into the national organization on April 7, 2012 and is currently working to obtain full chapter status.
Marshall’s Colony focuses on service, professionalism and brotherhood in many unique ways. Some of the events we’ve organized include guest lecturers, running badges at a Boy Scout Merit Badge college, food drives, bowling, fundraisers such as March Madness bracket tournaments, laptop sleeve sales, and much, much more.
If you’re interested in joining, the colony has a rush period in the Fall (potentially in the Spring as well). Rush includes several fun events where you’ll get to know the brothers, learn what we do and find out how Theta Tau can help you not only through your college years, but also after graduation. After the social events, prospective members will go through a series of classes where you will learn about the history of Theta Tau, learn the creed and other important information and take a short exam. This is prove to the brother that you’re serious about joining and will commit yourself after initiation. Once this process is complete, we will hold an initiation ceremony where you will be ritually sworn into the brotherhood.
