Q: True or False: Zete is one of the oldest houses on campus??
A: True. We were founded in 1853 and are the fourth oldest fraternity on campus, behind Psi Upsilon (1841), Kappa Kappa Kappa (1842) and Alpha Delta (1847). Since Tri Kap and AD are local fraternities, we are the second oldest National fraternity on campus. However, we have had periods of inactivity in our history... the longest from 1873-1920.

Q: How old is the building at 8 Webster Ave?
A: Our present physical plant was built in the early 1920s. Very little has been added over the years, though the basement probably saw the most renovation/reconstruction.

Q: Are alumni donations to Zete tax deductible? Are efforts being made so future donations will be tax deductible?
A: Currently, direct donations to the Alumni Association are not tax-deductible. A 501(c)3 non-profit entity, the 8 Webster Foundation, has been created, however, so if tax-deductibility is a major issue please choose that manner of contributing to the cause.
