In the Beginning - The North American college fraternity movement is virtually as old as the United States - born just five months after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On the evening of December 5, 1776, five students at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, met and founded Phi Beta Kappa as the first Greek-letter society in North America.
Since that time, the Greek-letter movement grew and expanded throughout the nation making ZBT existent on almost every major university campus. Today, there are approximately 150 ZBT chapters throughout the nation! It is estimated that by the year 2000, cumulative lifetime memberships will exceed over half of a million initiated brothers!
Founded in 1964, the ZBT chapter at CSUN is the oldest of all! Over 1,000 Brothers have graduated from our chapter at CSUN!
