Established in 1903, the Gamma Chapter at New York University is the oldest active chapter of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity. The Fraternity’s success is guided by its principles of intellectual awareness, social responsibility, integrity and brotherly love.
Back-to-back-to-back (’17, ’18, ’19) winners of NYU’s Greek Week tournament, the Gamma chapter has over 80 active brothers and is the predominant fraternity on campus. Outside of curating a flurrying social scene, Brothers work tirelessly year-round with corporations, charities, and the University to cultivate the Fraternity’s campus-wide mandate.
Alumni of the NYU chapter have graduated to work for prestigious companies in all industries, including Goldman Sachs, J.P Morgan, Lazard, Credit Suisse, Cantor Fitzgerald, RBC, Uber, Mastercard, and in film and TV with Martin Scorsese and Howard Stern.
