Founded in 1921 as a literary society, Alpha Phi Tau was created with the intention to better those within the group, Heidelberg’s campus and the greater Tiffin community. The fraternity, also known as Aptonalton or the Aps, believes in respect, equality and brotherhood. The ideas and practice of respect and equality can be seen in their corollary, the Alpha Phi Tau Lil’ Sisses, as well as the line in their toast that says, “with every respect for all womankind.” The members of Alpha Phi Tau can frequently be seen coming together in order to pursue the greater good, which to them is how they practice their brotherhood. Finally, they also greatly value acts of service. They participate in many philanthropic events, such as the annual Take Back the Night walk through downtown Tiffin, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and volunteer work within the Tiffin community.
