Epsilon chapter, founded in 1920, is the fifth oldest chapter in the history of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. The chapter was chartered as graduate chapter since our illustrious founders had not yet determined how to create undergraduate chapters with such small membership levels. Epsilon Chapter was founded as an undergraduate chapter on October 28, 1948 and encompassed all colleges in New York City. Now, Epsilon only reigns over the Metropolitan Manhattan area and the Bronx.
