A Message from the President


It is with great pride that I bring you greetings on behalf of the Exceptionally Electrifying Epsilon Xi Zeta Chapter and welcome you to our website. It is an honor to serve as the Centennial President as our beloved sorority celebrates 100 years of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood and we are committed to promoting these principals.

Rich in history, our chapter was chartered in 1954 with the purpose of continuing the legacy of Zeta Phi Beta by providing service to the Mercer County area. Our charter members wanted to ensure that the work of Zeta would continue to reach the masses and those in need would benefit from our service projects. 66 years later, the Epsilon Xi Zeta chapter continues to provide said services, striving to make a difference in our community through our National service program Z-HOPE, Zetas Helping Other People Excel. Under the Z-HOPE model, our programs focus on the mind, body and spirit for women, men, youth, elderly and international women. Our chapter also participates with other National initiatives such as Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Adopt-a-School, Autism Awareness, March of Dimes Prematurity Awareness and St. Jude just to name a few! We are very proud to host a Stork’s Nest in partnership with March of Dimes and Mercer Street Friends Center, which offers prenatal education classes with the hope of combating infant mortality and to ensure healthy pregnancies and births. Epsilon Xi Zeta chapter mentor young ladies via our youth auxiliary programs the Pearlettes (4-8yrs), Amicettes (9-13yrs) and Archonettes (14-18yrs), as well as sponsor an Amicae Auxiliary, which is a group of women who share in the principals of Zeta but for whatever reason did not matriculate at a four year college/university. We are the sponsoring graduate chapter for three undergraduate chapters; Omicron Epsilon chapter (The College of New Jersey), Chi Alpha chapter (Rider University) and Upsilon Rho chapter (Princeton University).

I invite you to take a look through our website to learn more about our illustrious sorority and the Exceptionally Electrifying Epsilon Xi Zeta chapter and all of our activities.  As you will see, we are a chapter on the move and we are on fire!!!
