Auxiliary Groups

Amicae

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has a long history of auxiliary organizations. In 1940, graduate chapters began to notice that there were women in the community with the same ideals as those women of the sorority. Yet, for various reasons these women were not able to attend college. As a result of their interest in the sorority, many different auxiliary organizations cropped up throughout the United States. The one that has lasted throughout the years and that has been recognized as the only Zeta Booster Club originated in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947. This group is called the zetaAmicaeAmicae, which means “friends” in Latin. The purpose of the Amicae is to lend assistance to Zeta activities, to promote good public relations between Zetas and other women in the community, to make non-Greek women feel closer to the program of a Greek-letter group, and to assure more cooperation in community projects sponsored by Zetas. Membership is open to family members, friends and women recommended by any of the city’s chapters. There are currently over 175Amicae chapters in the United States.

Today, Omaha’s Amicae chapter consists of seven members who are advised by Soror Queene Greene of Beta Psi Zeta Chapter. The Amicae are very active in the Omaha community. Not only do they assist and support Beta Psi Zeta, but they plan and execute their own community service projects as well. For example, for over ten years the Amicae of Omaha have hosted an Annual Senior Citizens’ Luncheon in the Fall. In the summer they host the Annual Amicaepicnic that’s a Blue and White Family favorite.
