Zeta Psi

The Alpha Chapter of the Zeta Psi fraternity was established at Dickinson College in 1852. By the next year, the College trustees had forced its members to sign written pledges promising to disband the organization, and even burned the fraternity’s record book, roll book, by-laws, constitution, and initiation ritual. Members of Zeta Psi were likely able to conduct secret meetings after this crackdown, but with the graduation of its last remaining members in 1856, the chapter was permanently dissolved.
