Omega Iota Chapter
University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
On Sept. 4, 1978, the formal rush for the Omega Iota chapter was held, under the supervision of then-Durham, NC, Graduate Chapter Advisor, Doretha Foushee. The Omega Iota chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was chartered Nov. 18, 1978 by four outstanding women, collectively known as the FOURce: Sorors Diane Thompson, Carol Lewis, Linda Quick, and Stella Jones-Adams.
In the 45 years plus since Omega Iota’s chartering, the chapter has produced 34 lines of outstanding ladies. QI has partaken in various programs and projects serving the Triangle and the greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro areas, including The Arc of Orange County, IFC, Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross, Dance Marathon, Project Uplift, UNC’s Residential and Housing Association and the list goes on.
This chapter has produced attorneys, doctors, basketball players, social workers, teachers, sports anchors and businesswomen and is currently nurturing future journalists, pharmacists, and PR representatives, among others.
Over the years, they've been recognized by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life for having the highest average community service hours per person not just within the National Pan Hellenic Council, but among all of the Greek-letter organizations on campus. They've been recognized for most improved chapter GPA, and sorors have been nominated for Outstanding Chapter President and the Unsung Heroes Award.
