"A Powerhouse of Excellence"
Psi Chapter History
The Zeta Beta Tau fraternity founded its Psi Chapter at The University of Alabama in 1916.
With the merger, on the national level, the Psi Chapter welcomed in their new brothers, and merged with Kappa Nu and Phi Epsilon Pi on campus. This brought upon a "new age" of the Jewish community at Alabama
Since that time the Jewish population has thrived on the University of Alabama campus, and many Psi Chapter Alumni have been very large proponents of this influx.
In the Spring of 2019, we will commemorated our 103 continuous years here at the Capstone with a Centennial Celebration including many Alumni returning to campus to marvel in the fact that the Psi Chapter still stands 100 years after receiving its charter. We were proud to unveil a Historical Land Marker in our front yard, signifying our recognition by the Alabama Historical Association as a historical building within the state. The International Office of Zeta Beta Tau presented a proclamation honoring the Psi Chapter for 100 years of commitment to the Credo and Mission of the fraternity.
