Over the last 100 plus years, over 150,000 women have become members of our illustrious sorority. Our dynamic members come together under the unifying ideals of Scholarship, Sisterhood, Service, and Finer Womanhood. As a result of the innovative spirit and consistent dedication of our Founders and Sisters throughout our history, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. has been the author of many firsts in Greekdom:

  • Zeta Phi Beta is the first and only Greek Letter sorority to be officially and constitutionally bound to a fraternity (Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc).
  • Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek-letter organization to organize its internal affairs within a central, national office, administered by a paid staff.

  • Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek-letter organization to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, known as the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes and Pearlettes.

  • Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek-letter organization to charter international chapters in Africa (1948).

Lambda Zeta is a progressive, action-oriented, award-winning chapter. Lambda Zeta Chapter's membership is comprised of more than 150 college educated women with diverse careers. We have within our ranks teachers, professors, lawyers, accountants, social workers, engineers, and health care professionals. Most of our members are highly accomplished and have obtained advanced degrees in their respective fields.
