ZETA AMICAE "Friends of Zeta"
As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organization. Under the administration of Soror Lullelia Harrison, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1948 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group. Zeta Amicae are affiliated through local chapters.
The Zeta Amicae of Washtenaw County was inducted as an auxiliary group on Sunday, January 10, 2010 at Dawn Farm located in Ypsilanti, Michigan. They were officially chartered by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated on April 9, 2010. "Friends" Amerish Billhymer, Mable Comer, Tamika Fisher, Evelyn Gregory, and Patrina Gregory were the original charter members.
