On Wednesday, Nov. 4 the Xi Eta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta hosted a Fit and Finer zoom workout. Kameelah Wesley Harris, personal trainer and owner of WOW Fitness in Little Rock was the instructor for the event

The women of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Xi Eta chapter at HSU hosted their yearly event “Zeta week” to draw attention to the organization and to give people a glimpse into the individuality of each member. “So Sweet Zeta Week” is a week-long event that was held from Nov. 2 through 6. All events were held virtually via Zoom and other platforms.


“The importance of our Zeta week was to showcase our chapter’s variety of individuality to the students of Henderson,” Kristen Washington, sorority president and junior said. “We represent such a small portion of finer women from all around the world and it is vital that we preserve that.”


This event is important to them to get their name out, and hopefully bring in new members. Each event for “So Sweet Zeta Week” was scheduled to what the sorority thought would be most engaging to students while still abiding by social distancing, as well as hoping to reduce the exposure of COVID-19.


“This year was different because it was held 100% virtual, using Zoom or Instagram live rather than in person,” Lanee Boyd, Z Hope Coordinator, and Henderson State Senior said. “Planning and executing these events came with its own set of challenges but we were able to stay safe and have fun.”


The members are looking forward to next year to be able to return back to normal for their week of events.
