Zeta Upsilon Chapter (Texas-Tyler)

Zeta Upsilon Chapter was installed at the University of Texas-Tyler in Tyler, Texas, on April 22, 2006.

In January 2006, Gamma Phi Beta colonized at the University of Texas-Tyler with Alpha Chi Omega and Delta Gamma, establishing the first Greek system on campus. Following a presentation, one-on-one interviews and an invitation-only preference event, the women celebrated Bid Day. After a full semester of Gamma Phi Beta education, Zeta Upsilon Chapter became Gamma Phi Beta's 116th active collegiate chapter. Mindy Sutton (Southern Methodist), director of the office of student development at the University, coordinated the process of bringing sororities and fraternities to campus. Mindy's leadership was instrumental in the success of the new Greek system.

Zeta Upsilon members were initiated by International President Linda Daniel Johnson (Vanderbilt), with the assistance of Kiki Phillips (Washington University), director of ritual, and Alpha Xi Chapter (Southern Methodist) of Gamma Phi Beta.

Zeta Upsilon Chapter was closed on October 25, 2010.
