Zeta Rho Chapter History
Zeta Rho undergraduate chapter began its journey with the help of Xi Zeta graduate chapter. With already five undergraduate sorors (NaTasha Bivings, Quiana Cope, Vanessa Criglar, Erica Porter, and Jennine Smith) , both graduate and undergraduate sorors began the process of organizing a city undergraduate chapter in the city of St. Louis. On June 3, 2000, the new undergraduate chapter, Zeta Rho, received its charter and name. Throughout the chartering process, eight new members were inducted into the sorority through Xi Zeta Chapter. The five previously inducted sorors were no longer undergraduate associates of Xi Zeta graduate chapter, but the charter members of Zeta Rho Chapter. After the establishment of Zeta Rho, the eight neophytes were then transferred into the chapter.
With thirteen chapter members, Zeta Rho commenced with great leadership. The sorors of Zeta Rho Chapter strive to uplift the character of their community through the ideals of the sorority, consistency, and dedication. As the youngest chapter of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, Zeta Rho Chapter has participated in a number of community service projects with:
The American Red Cross
The Women’s Safe House
The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc.
Kids Voting Campaign
March of Dimes
Room at the Inn

And various campus activities throughout the St. Louis area
