Zeta Beta Tau


The men of the Delta Lambda chapter of Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) have been on Monmouth’s campus for more than 50 years. ZBT was founded as a national organization on Dec. 29, 1898, at the City College of New York by Dr. Richard J. H. Gottheil. After being founded as the world’s first Jewish Zionist Fraternity, Zeta Beta Tau became nonsectarian in 1954 and opened its doors to non-Jewish members, changing its membership policy to include “All Men of Good Character.”

Monmouth’s ZBT chapter was a top-five finalist in 2020 for the Brummer Awards for most outstanding chapter from ZBT Nationals. They currently have an average of 22 service hours per brother. ZBT also regularly incorporates wellness into their programming and honors all brothers with their chapter Brother of the Week.

The most popular fields of study among the men of ZBT are:

  • Political Science
  • Business Administration
  • Classics
  • Communications
  • Social Science Education
