Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was organized at Howard University on January, 16, 1920 by five ladies affectionately known as “The Five Pearls”, who chose not to embrace the tenets of established sororities and chartered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated to encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote service projects on college campuses and in the community, foster sisterhood and exemplify the ideal of Finer Womanhood. The founding principles are: Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood.

We are Zeta Proud of our sorority members and wish them much success in all of their future endeavors. These ladies have exemplified the epitome of a Finer Woman–
