LIFTING AS WE CLIMB

ZII FRATERNITY-BUILDING #ZIIFraternityBuilding

We are not Philly's favorite Ques for nothing. Authentic, fraternal friendship is our foundation before anything else.

Thus, we are committed to sustaining and building on this tradition of brotherhood because friendship is essential to the soul.
