Harold Ramis entered Washington University as a freshman in the fall of 1962 and moved into student housing on the "South Forty." He pledged Zeta Beta Tau and joined (at the time) the largest fraternity on campus, with one hundred members. After a year in the dorms, Ramis moved into the ZBT Alpha Xi chapter house, at 7020 Forsyth Avenue. This would be his home for the remaining three years on campus.
The Hatchet yearbook indicates that on campus ZBT members were active, participating in Thurtene Carnival, intermural sports, and maintaining "a well-rounded program for relaxation." Ramis helped support the Zeta's many entries into the campus comedic theater production, "Bearskin Follies."
(below) This 1963-64 group photo includes "Ringo Mamis" in the front row, along with other creatively named ZBTs, such as "Snoopy Clare," Sandy Wax," and "Debby Kay."
