In 1990, eight determined women at Northern Illinois University came together
to form a bond like no other. They had a new idea for an organization that would unify all women of different cultures, ethnicities,
religions and backgrounds. This organization would also focus on the pursuit of higher education and achieving academic success.
These strong women wanted to not only teach others at their school about their ideals, but they wanted to share their dreams
and experiences with others as well.
They called themselves
the Mommy Chis and formed Zeta Sigma Chi, Multicultural Sorority Inc. on March 3, 1991. The idea of combining the principles
of Education, Success, Culture, Service, and Sisterhood to make an impact in the lives of every woman as well as the community
is the main goal of the organization. The uniqueness of the sorority includes its vast multicultural base with regards to
culture, ethnic group, race, religion, orientation, opinions, beliefs, and identity. One of its many strengths is pushing
academic success among its members in their undergraduate, and post graduate careers.
