The Return of ZBT

In Spring 2015, two Columbia students got in touch with ZBT’s National Headquarters with interest of bringing back the fraternity to campus. In Fall of 2015, recruiters from ZBT Nationals arrived on campus to help re-establish a chapter. Seven Columbia students were initiated into ZBT’s new chapter at Columbia. Now with a total of 31 students, the chapter is currently growing and has been conditionally approved as an official chapter. The chapter received a charter on March 26, 2017.
