Zeta Amicae was established as an auxiliary of Zeta Phi Beta during the 1948 National Convention (Grand Boule). Amicae are women who believe in and support the ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., but have not attended college. The Zeta Amicae group was designed to welcome interested women who support the ideals and goals of Zeta Phi Beta to participate in sorority activities. Friends and relatives of Zeta Phi Beta members, who have not completed a college degree are especially encouraged to apply for membership.
