It is my esteemed pleasure to greet you in the name of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood to the website of Zeta Zeta chapter of Dolton, IL. We are delighted you have taken the time to view our website!
Zeta Zeta Chapter, originally chartered in 1926, was re-chartered on October 3, 1987 as the result of thirty-three graduate and professional women (with educational backgrounds that include: bachelors, masters, doctoral and law degrees) in the Dolton, Illinois area. These women brought a wealth of information and resources from their undergraduate Zeta experiences to assist in making this chapter a force to be reckoned with. Since its inception, Zeta Zeta chapter is proud of the following accomplishments: upholding a rich tradition of sisterhood, having members to serve in various elected and appointed positions on all levels in the sorority and instilling within our youth auxiliaries the importance of a quality education, having respect for others and oneself, and to be proud of our rich heritage.
