Sorority spotlight: Zeta Sigma Chi Multicultural Sorority
The sisters of Zeta Sigma Chi Multicultural Sorority may not be the oldest sorority, but their sisterhood is as strong as ever. It was originally founded in DeKalb, Il on March 3, 1991 by eight brilliant women: Maribel Campa, Zandra Cortez, Sandra de la Roca, Veronica Escobar, Sandra Gomez, Jacqueline Herrera, Laura Murillo and Julie Sanders. These eight women had a dream of creating an organization in which women of all backgrounds could come together as one. Today, Zeta Sigma Chi is home to 79 Ethnicities, 34 Nationalities, 12 Religions, and one sisterhood which is growing more diverse every day.
On March 29, 2008 our chapter at Eastern Michigan University was founded by 6 women Lasonja Hansford, Kiesa Harmon, April Burton-Welch, Ebonee Jackson, Chalisa Phipps and Vicki Patton, who also shared that dream. Their principals are obviously very important to them. They strive for education, success, culture, service and sisterhood with a particular emphasis on community involvement and social justice.
Any interested EMU Student can inquire about joining the organization at anytime. They are encouraged to attend events, informational (upcoming) and rush week. Currently the sisters have a founders week coming up March 16-18th in which there will be a variety of Zchi events: Black and Peach Diversity Speech, Just Dance Party and their 5th annual breaking boundaries showcase. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by the Zchi office located in the student center room 342I or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also of interest is the upcoming SororiTEA on Monday March 9th, 2015 from 7:30-9:30p in room 310 of the Student Center. The SororiTEA will be an event just for sororities on and off campus in which they can come relax, sip tea and talk about hot topics happening on campus and within our organizations. The purpose is to unify sororities for empowerment, girl talk and bonding within the sisterhoods.
