The incident of two students on top of the Zeta Beta Tau house that is being investigated by UT is not an incident of hazing, according to a comment made by ZBT international headquarters.
“Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity does not condone any acts of hazing,” ZBT international staff said, “All men are initiated as full equals with full privileges and responsibility.”
The international headquarters said the two students who were photographed sleeping on top of the ZBT roof were not allowed to be there. ZBT international headquarters said the two individuals will be held accountable for their actions, but did not specify how.
“This activity was not an act of hazing, but an act of poor choices by two brothers.”
The UT Dean of Students Office is still investigating the issue, but there have been no further updates reported from the office.
