Membership in Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is by invitation only. We encourage interested women with a track record of community service and currently pursuing a Baccalaureate degree or in possession of a Baccalaureate degree to contact a chapter in your local area for additional information.
Non-degree seeking women interested in the Amicae and young ladies interested in one of the youth groups should contact a local graduate chapter for more information. In the event there is not an undergraduate or graduate chapter located in your vicinity, please e-mail the Illinois State Director. State your full name, state of residence, and name of college (if applicable), and type of membership sought in the subject line.
[In the ideal collegiate situation] there is a Zeta in a girl regardless of race, creed, or color, who has high standards and principles, a good scholarly average, and an active interest in all things that she undertakes to accomplish.
