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. Zeta Beta Tau seeks to support this environment in anyway possible. By using the resources our house has at their disposal, our members can create an individual academic plan designed to ensure academic success.

Social Responsibility

Fraternity requires the individual to commit himself and accept his responsibility to participate. Zeta Beta Tau uses every available opportunity to educate undergraduate members on holding safe and legal social events. Additionally, Zeta Beta Tau strives to be a positive force within the community by volunteering at homeless shelters, raising money for charity, and more.


Fraternity generates a standard of personal integrity – a framework for the individual to maintain honesty, exhibit loyalty and retain a sense of self-discipline. Zeta Beta Tau holds its members to rigorous standards called “Brotherhood Minimum Standards.” These standards are the bare minimum for being a brother of Zeta Beta Tau, if a brother is having trouble reaching these standards, the house is their to pick them back up.

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. Brotherhood is one of the most important aspects of Zeta Beta Tau. During their time in the house, Zeta Beta Tau members develop life long friendships not only with their brothers but with the community at large.
