Alpha Kappa Alpha - Zeta Omega
On January 16, 1908, a group of nine young women at Howard University initiated the movement of founding a Greek Letter sorority among Negro women in America. From this small nucleus, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc has expanded to more than 170,000 college women affiliated with undergraduate and alumnae chapters located in leading colleges, universities and cities throughout the United States and abroad. As the Founding members crafted the purpose of the organization, they included, ".. .to be of service to all mankind."
Zeta Omega Chapter became the sixth alumnae chapter of the Sorority when it was chartered on April 28, 1922 in Wilmington, DE. The members of Zeta Omega have proudly upheld the purpose and traditions of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in providing service to all mankind.
