Nu Omicron Chapter

Sigma Xi Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is the sponsoring graduate chapter for Nu Omicron. The chapter has been advised by Sigma Xi Zeta since 2003. Both chapters work closely together to bridge the gap between the undergraduate and graduate Sorors. Some of our sisterhood bonding activities include supporting each other’s programs and events within the sorority as well as participating in sisterhood activities outside of sorority obligations.

Our Story

Sisterhood means building something that will last beyond the four years spent in college for the Nu Omicron Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. The chapter makes a concerted effort to connect with organizations and individuals through mentorship and service.

 

Since its charter on September 22, 1993, the Nu Omicron Chapter has championed the sorority motto of being “a community conscious, action-oriented organization”. The chapter has continuously impacted the Duke and Durham community through a myriad of community service projects. These include but are not limited to participation in March of Dimes, volunteering at the local Boys and Girls Club, and collecting canned goods for the Durham Community Food Pantry.

The young ladies of this illustrious organization are trailblazers exhibiting the aspect of Finer Womanhood through their service to women with initiatives and programs. Some of these programs are International Women of Color, Stork’s Nest, and Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

 

Additionally, each year, the Nu Omicron Chapter hosts a charity auction gala. All proceeds generated are donated to March of Dimes.

 

Since coming to Duke, members of the Nu Omicron Chapter have held numerous leadership roles. These include serving as president for almost every Black cultural organization on campus, stood on the forefront of campus activism, won numerous step shows, and led the planning for Duke’s Official Abele Quad Dedication. This ceremony was in honor of the Black Architect, Julian Abele, who designed Duke’s campus.

 

Nu Omicron Alumni work in a variety of career fields. These include but are not limited to judges, dentists, CEOs, lawyers, doctors, professors, researchers, entrepreneurs, and branding coordinators for top industries. The chapter has been featured in The Washington Post, US News & World Report, and Psychology Today.
