Zeta Tau Chapter
George Mason University
The Zeta Tau chapter was established on November 4, 2007, led by two brave young men who dared to be different. They wanted to bring something unique and dynamic to the campus and surrounding communities. Zeta Tau quickly impacted Mason by bringing in new members, winning campus awards for Highest NPHC GPA, winning new organization of the year, the NPHCStep show, and Greek Week.
