Zeta Beta Tau introduces Interfraternity Council on Feature Phoenix

The video series offers a new way to learn about how Elon’s organizations and clubs reflect the university's approach to inclusive excellence.

The new Feature Phoenix series is offering an opportunity to learn about how student organizations and clubs are supporting inclusive excellence on campus. Episode Five introduces Jack Autieri ’25, who is a member of Elon’s Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) – fraternities.

One way for students to enhance their Elon experiences is by connecting with a fraternity or sorority community. Elon has various options for students, and these organizations can help foster foundational principles, serve as guides and advocates for student development and more. Elon University’s Interfraternity Council governs the male fraternities that are members of the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). The NIC was founded in 1909. The council is the trade association that represents 75 international and national men’s fraternities.

ZBT was founded on Dec. 29, 1898, at City College of New York. The chapter at Elon was established on March 1, 2015. It has since celebrated nine years of brotherhood, responsibility and service.

In this episode of Feature Phoenix, Autieri shares about what the mission of ZBT is and how he found a unique brotherhood. “We very heavily place an emphasis on mental health along with creating a constructive environment where people are brought up rather than brought down,” Autieri said.

Students can connect with ZBT through the organization’s email address and social media channels, which can be found on Phoenix Connect.

Feature Phoenix is a great way to learn about the clubs and organizations that Elon has to offer and how inclusive excellence is engrained on the campus. The series will feature clubs and organizations of different sizes that bring together people around a range of topics.
