On June 20, 1966, fifty-seven fabulous Sorors, with a vision, came together to form a new chapter, and thus became Zeta Tau Zeta Metropolitan Chicago Graduate Chapter. Zeta Tau Zeta was organized from two Chicago chapters, Beta Iota Zeta and Zeta Zeta. These two chapters came together for a merger that created the oldest graduate chapter in Illinois. During its existence, Zeta Tau Zeta has become one of the largest and strongest graduate chapters in Zetadom. Five (5) of those Charter Members, affectionately known as the "Fabulous 57" are still actively and financially involved in the life of Zeta Tau Zeta today.
Zeta Tau Zeta is a graduate chapter consisting of college educated women from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds. We are fiercely dedicated to the Sorority principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood. We actively serve our community through participation in a wide variety of programs and projects, including the March of Dimes, the Stork's Nest, Eldercare, youth programs, mentoring programs, feeding the homeless, school supply drives, Adopt-a-School projects, breast cancer awareness, Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus.
