Also known as a “protest fraternity,” the members of the Tau Gamma Phi as well as their counter part, the Tau Gamma Sigma, are encouraged to strive for holistic growth and to involve themselves in different activities that will help build better communities. As one of the largest fraternities, the Tau Gamma Phi has become one of the most efficient organization contributing to the betterment of the society. As the Golden Anniversary fast approaches, different socio-civic activities are being done not only within the country but across the world.
