Zeta Zeta chapter quickly became a leader at Augusta College. Formal initiation took place twice, on Saturday morning for the collegiate members and Saturday afternoon for the honorary members. During their first year, six Zeta Zeta members were elected to the student government association. The chapter did not experience sufficient growth and closed in 1983. The chapter was reinstalled with 33 charter members and joined Zeta Tau Alpha to become the second NPC group on campus. They quickly grew to more than 50 members. Collegians from Beta Sigma at Mercer and Zeta Iota at Georgia College and State University assisted. Former Grand Council member, Maryann Friend Gillespie, who attended the first installation in 1972 was a special guest at the banquet.
