Zeta Beta Tau

Leave your Legacy – Become a Powerhouse of Excellence

The Alpha Gamma Colony of the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity proudly recolonized on Vanderbilt University’s campus in the Spring of 2014. This “Powerhouse of Excellence” works hard to live by our credo of Intellectual Awareness, Social Responsibility, Integrity and Brotherly Love. We are excited to work closely throughout the year with our national philanthropy partner, The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and make a difference in both the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities, and we are proud to be helping influence these communities. During our first semester back on campus, we colonized with the largest founding father class in the past 20 years of ZBT history. Additionally, in accordance with our national organization’s policies, we are one of the only fraternities at Vanderbilt to have a no pledging policy. This ensures that everyone who is initiated into ZBT is treated as a full member of the fraternity. They are initiated 72 hours after receiving a bid at the latest and treated as an equal brother immediately. As the country’s first Jewish fraternity, Zeta Beta Tau continues to build off of its rich history and proudly welcomes all men of good character.
