Zeta Beta Tau prides itself on being an inclusive organization
welcoming of any college man who understands and appreciates
our mission. With more than 140,000 initiated men ZBT's can be
found in all aspects of life: business, entertainment, media,
politics, and much more. In 1989, ZBT became the first fraternity to abolish pledging.
We believe that fraternity offers to the university community a unique, desirable and successful means of achieving this goal. In fulfilling the purposes of fraternity, we dedicate ourselves to the principles of:
INTELLECTUAL AWARENESS. Fraternity creates an atmosphere conducive to the expansion of the individual's intellectual horizons, the interchange of ideas within the academic community and the pursuit of scholastic excellence.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Fraternity requires the individual to commit himself and accept his responsibility to participate.
INTEGRITY. Fraternity generates a standard of personal integrity – a framework for the individual to maintain honesty, exhibit loyalty and retain a sense of self-discipline.
BROTHERLY LOVE. Fraternity inspires and expresses the interrelation of the individual with his fellows, his pride in the institution and respect for the wisdom of its tradition.
