History

Zeta Psi (“Zete”) at Dartmouth College was founded in 1853 as the Psi Epsilon chapter of the national fraternity, and was the fifth fraternity founded at the college. Zeta Psi is well known around campus for its safe, inclusive basement scene and its kind, fun loving brothers.

The fraternity became inactive in 1863, but was revived from 1871 through 1873 after which it again became inactive. The current Psi Epsilon chapter of Zeta Psi at Dartmouth was established in 1920. Zeta Psi is known for its weekly Zeta Psider event, and goat roasting at Green Key.

In 2009, alumni raised millions of dollars and the physical plant was entirely gutted and renovated, with a three-story addition being constructed resulting in a new and spacious house. Even the basement was enlarged to accommodate a more integrated social scene.
