About Us

The Kappa Chapter of Zeta Beta Tau has a rich tradition of excellence at Cornell University. ZBT is an extremely strong national fraternity with over 100,000 active members. While most houses tout their diversity, at ZBT diversity is a reality. The strength of our chapter is built on developing the interests of our brothers.

ZBT is a rich blend of men from each school at Cornell. ZBT’s can be found on and off campus leading and participating in such activities as the Interfraternity Council, the Cornell Daily Sun, ROTC, Madison and Tower, and other societies. We maintain a strong athletic presence, with brothers on the varsity football, lightweight football, crew, and tennis teams, as well as club sports such as rugby and skiing.

Although ZBT is composed of many minds of people, we are all strongly committed to the principles of brotherhood. Despite our size, we have established a tight sense of brotherhood, which will stay for us for the rest of our lives. The brotherhood at ZBT stands for much more than can be explained here. So, we invite you to visit us at Edgecliff and see why we take such pride in Zeta Beta Tau.

Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity was founded in 1898 in New York City and is the nation’s oldest and largest historically Jewish fraternity, with nearly 50 years of non-sectarian Brotherhood. ZBT is a Brotherhood of Kappa Nu, Phi Alpha, Phi Sigma Delta, Phi Epsilon Pi and Zeta Beta Tau. ZBT is represented on over 80 campuses across the United States and has 110,000 undergraduate and alumni Brothers in North America.
