A "Stay Tuned…" feature which ran on the front page of the May 8 issue of The Tech incorrectly claimed that the Alpha Tau Omega chapter at MIT had lost its charter from the national fraternity. The article based the claim on minutes from a Cambridge License Commission meeting in January, which state that the chapter "lost their Parent Charter." According to Wynn Smiley, chief executive officer of the national ATO organization, the chapter is in good standing with the national fraternity.

Stay Tuned…

After the Alpha Tau Omega house was damaged last summer from a pipe leak, rendering it temporarily uninhabitable, the fraternity lost its charter from the national fraternity, according to Cambridge License Commission minutes. Yesterday morning, the CLC held a decision meeting where — if ATO regained its charter — the committee could have decided to grant the fraternity a housing license.
