Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity is proud to announce the chartering of the Alpha Omega Chapter at University of Miami.
The Chartering Ceremony was Saturday, November 4, 2023, at the Chapter house on Liguria Avenue. Chartering Officer was Past International President Norman M. Waas, Esq., Alpha Omega 1982, and Master of Ceremonies was Fraternity Chief Executive Officer Libby Anderson, CAE. Presiding Chapter President is Will H. Fleck, Alpha Omega 2024.
“The success and prosperity of the Alpha Omega Chapter rests in each of the individual brothers. From those who were there since the start to the newest brothers who came on in the fall, they have all contributed to getting this Chapter back on campus. And they will be followed by quality men who will become ZBT Brothers next semester and for years to come,” Brother Fleck said. “Receiving our Charter in the most expeditious amount of time was truly a great honor and the zenith of success in my entire college career. It could not have happened without the hard work, determination, resolve and commitment of the rest of the Brotherhood.”
Congratulatory notes can be sent to the Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many proud alumni and guests were in attendance, notably Brother Jerome Cohen, 1951 (pictured left with his grandson, Billy Corben), who was an original Founding Father of the Chapter in 1947.

Kushner, Alpha Omega 2001, (pictured above middle) several other local volunteers and alumni, University representatives including Senior Associate Dean of Students Steve Priepke and Associate Dean Cristina Luna, current and past ZBT staff and the undergraduate Alpha Omega Chapter brothers. The day following the chartering, Zeta Beta Tau hosted a highly regarded alumni reception in the area, generously hosted by Zeta Beta Tau Foundation Past President Steve Gold, Alpha Omega 2000.
