Chapter History

In the 2011 spring semester, Coordinator of Chapter and Colony Development Ryan Bakita, Miami University '06, conducted the initial expansion effort at Fresno State University. A total of 15 men participated in the first Pledge Ceremony in February, 2011. Furthermore, 16 men were initiated on April 29, 2011.

After attending Elevate - National Leadership Conference in 2011, and Academy of Leadership, Ralph F. Burns Leadership Institute, and Grand Chapter in 2012, the colony had a strong recruitment in the fall of 2012 with 17 new members going through the pledge ceremony. Under the leadership of Chapter President Daniel Ward, Fresno State '11 the colony recruited an additional 10 men the following spring and were approved for chapter status by the Grand Council in February of 2013. The men of the chapter at Fresno State had become much more involved in campus life and the community, which was evident as their chartering banquet drew nearly 150 guests. Zeta Mu Chapter was officially installed on April 20, 2013 by Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications Ryan Bakita, Miami University '06 and Fresno State '13 and Grand Historian Bob Kutz, UC-Berekely '67
