Bones Gate

10 Webster Ave.

Bones Gate Fraternity was founded in 1901 as the Gamma Gamma Chapter of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity. The fraternity remained a part of the Delta Tau Delta national until 1960 when the house seceded due to a disagreement over the acceptance of minority brothers (the national sought to bar the membership of minorities). The fraternity went unnamed until 1962 when the name was changed to Bones Gate after a tavern and boarding house in Chessington, England where a number of brothers spent most of their foreign study program. The house prides itself on its 100 year tradition of existence.


Currently Bones Gate is a fraternity of variety. They have many disparities, but are united by their love for their fraternity. No BG is easily classified, nor does the fraternity want to be thought of as a place for only one kind of person. Bones Gate maintains its commitment to be leaders on campus by setting an example for all to follow. The house prides itself on its thirst for never ending fun. This Gate hangs high and hinders none. Refresh, enjoy, and travel on.
