In the 2010 spring semester, Director of Expansion and Growth, Matt Humberger, Bowling Green '03, conducted the initial expansion effort at San Francisco State University. Twenty-four men participated in the first Pledge Ceremony in February 2010. The group was colonized in April 2010. In January 2011, the colony had a difference with the Fraternity over risk management policies and most members of the colony decided to not pursue being initiated as members of Alpha Sigma Phi.
In the 2011 fall semester, Coordinator of Chapter and Colony Development, Enzo Pivirotto, Chico State '11, worked with the remaining members of the colony to revitalize expansion efforts. He recruited an additional 21 men who went through the Pledge Ceremony in September 2011. On December 3, 2011, 21 men in the colony went through the Initiation Ceremony.
After a year of working hard to maintain a positive image and interactive presence on the campus and in the community, the colony was approved for chapter status by the Grand Council in February of 2013. A solid spring recruitment class added to their credentials and the Zeta Lambda Chapter of was installed on May 4, 2013. Former staff member Enzo Pivirotto, Chico State '11, Fraternity President and CEO Gordy Heminger, Bowling Green '96, and Foundation Senior Director of Development Steve Latour, Central Michigan '04 were on hand to present the charter and insignia.
