Chapter Bio:

 

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated was organized on the campus of Howard University on January 16th, 1920. As a result of encouragement given to the five founders by Charles Taylor and A. Langston Taylor, these Sigma brothers felt the campus would benefit by the development of such an organization as sisters to the Fraternity. Zeta and Sigma became the first official Greek letter sister and brother organization. Our five pearls (founders) are Arizona Cleaver Stemons, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings and Fannie Pettie Watts.

The UnMiZtakable Upsilon Epsilon Chapter was chartered on February 14th, 1975 at the University of Akron's campus. We are a "Community conscious, action-oriented organization." We have received many awards to display out leadership skills including the most community service hours and NPHC philanthropic excellence award this year. we enjoy hosting fun and educational programs for the students on our campus. We love doing the work of Zeta.
