Wilkommen... Welcome...

We are the Germany Zetas

Building On The Principles of ZETA While Blazing New Paths

Our Sorority

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 16, 1920, at Howard University, Washington, D.C. It was within this environment that five coeds envisioned a sorority which would directly affect positive change, chart a course of action for the 1920s and beyond.

Our Chapter

Mu Theta Zeta Chapter was charted in Darmstadt, Germany July 1, 1983, by five PHENOMENAL women by the names of Meriel Waker, Valerie Griffin, Irma Watson, Amelia Reid, and Patricia Bates. These finer women were teachers, counselors, and servicewomen that made a dream into a reality by creating the first and only graduate chapter in Germany.

Our Service

Mu Theta Zeta Chapter is just one part of a global community-conscious, action-oriented organization. We strive to continue building on the principles of ZETA while blazing new paths in the world.

Morgan has a maintained a 4.0 GPA (unweighted). Her recommendations speak to not only her academic performance but also her service to the community. She plans to major in Biology and eventually receive a Doctor of Optometry. Her essay highlighted her efforts of volunteerism as a direct result being influenced by social activism.

We congratulate Morgan and the field of applicants on their scholastic achievements and wish them all the best on their respective collegiate journeys.

President’s Message


I am excited to bring you warm greetings from Germany – the land of poets and thinkers – on behalf of the members of Mu Theta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. 

As our chapter embarks on the 40th anniversary of its chartering, I am honored to carry the torch, continuing to build upon a legacy of impactful service to military and local communities abroad.  While our numbers are small, our presence is mighty as we collectively sustain our outreach through our partnerships with a variety of organizations throughout the country. We pride ourselves in being able to support the educational dreams of DoDea and international students through our generous scholarship program.
