"Friends of Zeta"
Zeta Amicae was the first national auxiliary of a collegiate sorority.
As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organization. Under the administration of Soror Lullelia Harrison, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group.
The purpose of the Amicae is to lend assistance to Zeta activities, to promote good public relations between Zeta and community women, to make non-Greek women feel closer to the programming of the sorority, and to ensure more community cooperation in Zeta activities. Zeta Amicae are affiliated through local chapters and offer invaluable services to the sorority and their respective communities. Although Amicae are not members of Zeta Phi Beta, the love of Zeta is shown to all. Working hand-in-hand, the members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and the Amicae continue to uphold a 65+ year old tradition of friendship.
