Chapter History

In September of 2012, Coordinator of Expansion and Growth Justin Ferreira, Hartford '10, arrived on campus at the University of Michigan - Flint to recruit men for a new organization at the University. As UM - Flint looked to expand their Greek community, Alpha Sigma Phi took the opportunity to start another successful chapter. Twelve men were put through the Pledge Ceremony during Ferreira's time on campus, and they quickly began working with staff members and members from local chapters to form a colony. Director of Chapter and Colony Development Danny Miller, Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity, arrived on site to train colony officers and host elections. Within two years of the group’s establishment, brother Evan Kissel, UM - Flint '12, was elected as IFC President. 

The group submitted a petition and was approved to charter as the Zeta Phi Chapter in May of 2015. Zeta Phi Chartered on September 12, 2015. Grand Councilor Rodney Rusk, Central Michigan '93, gave the Keynote Address and presented the group with their charter. Carlton Matthews, Murray State '10, represented Fraternity Staff. Ryan Wier, UM - Flint '12, was the Founding President.
