By State


Psi (University of Alabama)

The Chapter has taken part in a fraternity golf tournament raising over $50,000 and brothers have also participated in Alpha Phi’s annual Heartthrob philanthropy event, a campus-wide activity that raised money for charity. The Chapter took part in Tuscaloosa Emergency Services (TES), where brothers helped many families in need across the region by packing trucks and organizing donated materials for the Tuscaloosa community.


Alpha Omicron (University of Arizona)

Alpha Omicron is among the largest chapters in the Fraternity. The Chapter is hosting a variety of local programs, including a LinkedIn profile workshop, and attending international programs, such as the James E. Greer, Jr. Presidents’ Leadership Academy and Emerging Leaders Institute.

Gamma Tau (Arizona State University)

The Chapter is practicing Ritual and has earned its first Standards of Excellence point this semester. Gamma Tau has almost 60 brothers.


Phi Theta Gamma (Lyon College)

The Chapter has been able to operate with a degree of normalcy on campus since spring 2021, holding recruitment and general social events within guidelines issued by the school. Traditional brotherhood events that involved some travel and bringing in alumni had to be scaled down, but still happened. Phi Theta Gamma’s spring charity fundraising event, The Inferno, went quite well under the circumstances. Attempts to reach out to the small Jewish community in Batesville and observe holidays have yielded positive results. Community service work, such as cleaning up Polk Bayou, has continued.

The Chapter ran a campus-wide game of Humans vs Zombies in October. These events have always been popular in the past, and they give students an opportunity to explore the wilder parts of campus.

This summer, Eli E. Kemp, 2023, participated in marine biology research Dauphin Island Sea Lab through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates program. He is in the process of publishing his research in the Gulf and Caribbean Research Journal.

Chase R. Griffith, 2022, is leading an ongoing effort to restructure the school’s Interfraternity Council and bring in more student voices in policymaking. This agenda, if it succeeds, will greatly improve the position of Fraternity and Sorority Life on campus for all organizations.

The spring 2021 recruitment video is now uploaded to Phi Theta Gamma’s YouTube channel. The current brothers have been told that other chapters and even some of those at ZBT International Headquarters have enjoyed Phi Theta Gamma’s video skits in the past; Chapter leaders hope this one is a hit as well.


Alpha Delta (University of Southern California)

Alpha Delta has a good reputation on campus. Brothers are leaders in the Interfraternity Council. Legacy recruitment is a priority within Alpha Delta and the group is on track to move into a new Chapter house in 2022. The USC campus has struggled due to fraternity life protests after a much-publicized incident at another fraternity earlier in the fall.

Brother Jaren M. Lewison, 2023, is in the cast of Netflix comedy Never Have I Ever. The show won this year’s People’s Choice Award for Comedy Show of the Year.

In early December, brothers conducted philanthropy week and all proceeds went to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Eta Mu (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo)            

Following a year of limited Chapter activities, Eta Mu has been privileged to undergo a variety of brotherhood events. From paintball, hiking and camping, the brothers of Eta Mu have simply cherished bonding with one another this year.

This year the Chapter has had the ability to raise thousands of dollars for a local underprivileged elementary school, Hawthorne Elementary. Through a car wash that often had 15 cars waiting in line and a calendar featuring brothers, Eta Mu has been able to make an impact in the community. This past summer Eta Mu had many brothers go about internships as they look to join with full-time offers after they graduate. Eta Mu brothers interned at Amazon, Plaid, Ernst & Young, Lockheed Martin and many other companies, and many of them also received full-time offers. Many credit their academic success from the LinkedIn, resume and career fair workshops the Chapter has held for all brothers.

Gamma Nu (California State University-Los Angeles)

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Midnight Mission Philanthropy hosted in early November. The Chapter donated over 25 bags of clothing! Brothers said, “We are amazed and blessed to have given back to the community.”




Gamma Xi (University of California, Santa Barbara)

The Chapter has been able to participate in weekly community service at the local Santa Barbara Hillel, having a great turnout week in and week out. In addition, ZBT brothers earned service hours by peer facilitating campus events for fellow Greeks, the New Member Conference and the Fraternity & Sorority Life Conference. Gamma Xi had a Hanukkah ceremony hosted at the Chapter house that was facilitated by the local Chabad rabbi.

The most unique thing the Chapter has done was introducing a Mental Health Committee and Chair within the Chapter earlier this fall. The Mental Health Chair has weekly check-ins with brothers, organizes and holds weekly meetings for the Chapter and has plans to schedule guest speakers to come in and talk about the importance and aspects of mental health. It is open to all brothers who can join at any time, and so far we have had fantastic feedback from the brothers on this new committee.

Brother Nick L. Broms, 2025, is a professional downhill longboarder who is currently having a documentary made about his career. In his own words: “Hi there! I’m Nick Broms, a professional downhill skateboarder and two-time Junior World Champion. I began downhill skateboarding at a young age and it is my greatest passion, but I love, camping, surfing and pretty much anything outdoors. Downhill has been my life for the last seven years and it has truly provided me with some of the biggest blessings in my life, this documentary being one of them.” Check out the trailer and website.

Three docents gave brothers a private tour of the museum and shared countless stories of victims and survivors. At the end of the day, brothers learned a lot about the Holocaust era and Jewish heritage. This Chapter program was made possible in part by the generous support of a Chapter Heritage Grant from the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation.

In addition, the Alpha Alpha Chapter increased its size to 168 undergraduates with 32 new brothers this fall!

A unique opportunity this semester was the chance for the brothers of the Chapter to go canoeing down the river east of Kokomo and end on the Wabash River in Lafayette.
