nphc_logoCSULB NPHC: Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. by five distinguished collegiate women.

These five women chartered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority to encourage the highest standard of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote service projects on college campuses and in the community; foster sisterhood and exemplify the ideals of Finer Womanhood.

The trail blazed by the founders has been traversed by thousands of women dedicated to the emulation of the objectives and ideals of the Sorority.

Since it's inception, the sorority has chronicled a number of "first" among the established historically African American sororities.

In addition to being the only organization constitutionally bound to a fraternity, the sorority was the first to charter international chapters, those in West Africa and Germany; to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, the Amicae, Archinettes, Amicettes and Pearletts.

Five ambitious and determined women founded the Kappa Nu chapter on May 23, 1986. Through the years Kappa Nu chapter has established many campus programs that have transcended the test of time.

The chapter also participates in several annual events within Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and in the greater Seattle area. Kappa Nu's campus activities include:

  • Zeta Week and Sigma Week
  • Thanksgiving Food Baskets
  • Christmas Cloths Drive

As members of the "Divine Nine" organizations that make up the NPHC, Kappa Nu chapter believes in working with others to progress forward to create a strong Black Community on the campus of University of Washington, Seattle.
