Georgia Tech is tough - there is no escaping that fact. But an unconditional support network of more than 75 lifelong friends can make graduating from one of the nation’s most rigorous schools a truly rewarding experience. Alpha Epsilon Pi at Georgia Tech brings together Jewish men from very diverse backgrounds, and instills principles such as mutual helpfulness, honesty, and perseverance in its brothers from Day One. The AEPi Zeta brothers eat together, play basketball together, and even study together. Upon “getting out” of Georgia Tech, the bonds built in AEPi Zeta will last well into adulthood and the memories made while an undergraduate will last a lifetime.
The chapter is competitive in every intramural offered by Georgia Tech’s Campus Recreation Center and has recently been crowned fraternity-wide champions in Racquetball and Bowling. Sports such as Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, Dodgeball, and Football are also very popular among the brothers. The AEPi Zeta house is also home to its own basketball court which seems to always be filled with brothers playing pickup 3v3.
At a top institution like Georgia Tech, it goes without say that the Zeta Chapter holds academics in very high regard. AEPi Zeta is proud to consistently rank among top fraternities on campus in GPA rankings, as well as boast of brothers who serve as Teaching Assistants in popular freshmen Math and Computer Science courses. The chapter makes abundantly clear to its new members that AEPi commitments should not interfere with academics, and that attitude is reflected in new member study hours and progress report check-ups.
Every Fall semester AEPi hosts a semiformal for the brothers and their dates that include a swanky intown venue, dinner, a dance, a DJ, and a generous bar tab for those over 21. Every Spring semester, a weekend-long, out of town formal event is held. The Zeta chapter also hosts beach weekends, mountain weekends, date nights, mixers with sororities, a campout, and plenty of other fun activities.
AEPi Zeta places a lot of emphasis on ensuring members are exposed to philanthropy and service during their time in college. In the past two years the chapter has hosted American Red Cross blood drives as well as bone marrow donor drives. It also participates annually in Relay for Life, Dance Marathon, the GT St. Baldricks fundraiser, and the PurpleStride Atlanta pancreatic cancer walk.
The Zeta Chapter participates in both the Fall and Spring Rush weeks hosted by Georgia Tech, and the brothers are always excited to welcome a new class of young men into their ranks. Rush provides an opportunity for interested Tech students to meet brothers of AEPi, learn first-hand about the opportunities a fraternity can provide, and get to know other underclassmen going through the Rush process. Fall Rush typically begins the Thursday or Friday night before the first week of classes, while Spring Rush takes place the second week of the Spring semester.
