Undergraduate Chapters of Iowa Overview

As Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. quickly approaches her 100th year of service, it is a humbling experience to recognize that this great legacy was started by Five young Undergraduate women at Howard University. The Undergraduate sector of our amazing organization is a vital and intricate part of membership that is very special.  The State of Iowa has the privilege of being the home to four undergraduate chapters located at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, Coe Collegeand the University of Dubuque.

Some notable events that we host include the Black Girls Rock awards ceremony which honors women in Iowa communities that are striving to make a difference and our Mr. Zeta Phi Beta Pageant that showcases men that uphold the ideals of our Sorority in their daily lives. Our philanthropic events include Dinner for a Cause which raises proceeds for March of Dimes and Pie Your Favorite Zeta which also raises proceeds for March of Dimes.  We also held a school supply drive that allowed us to collect school supplies for a local elementary school.  For service, we volunteer at Mission of Hope church in Cedar Rapids.  For fun, we enjoy getting together at our favorite restaurant for Taco Tuesday.  Currently, our chapter has ten members.
