History of Zeta Tau

The Zeta Tau Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi has been on the campus of the University of California, Irvine since 1986. Zeta Tau received its charter on May 22, 1988 and joined UC Irvine’s Interfraternity Council on April 2, 1990.

Our Chapter membership is consistently between 35 to 40 brothers each year. While some houses aim for high numbers, we consider our moderate size to be a great strength. It allows a strong brotherhood to flourish in AEPi because we know each other very well. We are able to develop much more meaningful friendships with 35-40 tightly knit brothers than we could with 100 acquaintances. No other house can offer the brotherhood that Alpha Epsilon Pi has.

AEPi ZT has been a very active participant in the UCI community. The presidents of Hillel and Anteaters for Israel are currently brothers of AEPi. We have had brothers participating in ASUCI, the Interfraternity Council, the New University, the UCI Cheerleading Squad, the UCI Hockey Team, the UCI Track Team and many other extracurricular activities. We have won numerous Greek Awards in recent years for community service, sportsmanship, and academics. Brother Sasha Strauss also won the esteemed Greek Man of the Year award a few years back. Also, ZT consistently ranks at the top of all UCI fraternities in GPA.

Our involvement extends beyond the UC Irvine campus. We have contributed to multiple charities in the past including Cuck Fancer, school year.

We are very active in every facet of student life and are getting stronger each year. To find out more about becoming a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi please visit our Rush page.
