University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, February 23, 1985
Becoming the 13th sorority at Southern Miss, Eta Zeta was colonized on September 20, 1984 and was installed in February 1985 with 23 collegians and one honorary initiate. As a colony, the chapter became involved in all campus and Greek activities and that tradition continues. In 1991, Eta Zeta brought recording artist group EXTREME to town for a benefit concert, raising $10,000 for Eta Zeta sister Monica Goretski's double-lung transplant. The chapter resides in a Greek village. Former international officer Jeri McGraw Hurst, Delta Eta - McNeese, served as an advisor for many years.
