Eta Zeta

Binghamton University

Nov 7th, 1087

Founding Date

Alpha Phis everywhere wore their silver and bordeaux ribbons on November 7, 1987, in recognition of the installation of Alpha Phi’s newest chapter, Eta Zeta at the State University of New York-Binghamton.


Present and participating in the installation weekend activities were International Vice-President Alumnae Mary Berkmoes Carroll (Delta Omega-Minnesota State Moorhead), New Chapter Supervisor and Administrator of Chapter Development Colette Tyrrell Rankin (Alpha-Syracuse), former Field Representative Lori Vanderleest (Zeta Delta-Iowa State), Field Representatives Kristi Hanson (Beta Epsilon-Arizona) and Beth Owens (Omicron-Missouri), and members of the collegiate chapters at Syracuse University and Cornell. 


Installation weekend activities began with the Court of Ivy ceremony conducted by Delta (Cornell) collegians. Following the initiation ceremony, a reception, planned by Installation Chairman Nancy Hargrave (Gamma Rho-Penn State), honored the new initiates. Mary Carroll presented the chapter with its charter, signaling Eta Zeta chapter’s place in Alpha Phi history.
