Zeta Chapter members in 1904.
Zeta Chapter (Goucher)
Zeta Chapter was installed at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland, on November 24, 1893. Zeta Chapter closed on June 1, 1950.
A charter was granted to a local group at the Women’s College of Baltimore – known as Goucher College – at Convention 1893. The charter members, seven in number, were initiated by two members of Alpha Chapter (Syracuse). The Board of Trustees of Goucher College voted to remove all six of the National Panhellenic Conference organizations in 1950, and in June of that year Zeta Chapter was closed.
Farewell to Zeta
In 1950, all sororities were removed from Goucher College campus in Baltimore, resulting in the closure of Zeta Chapter. Members said farewell to Zeta Chapter but by no means farewell to all those who have entered the circle of Gamma Phi Beta through Zeta. Because for once a Gamma Phi Beta, always a Gamma Phi Beta.
