Zeta Epsilon Chi is a new UNC Charlotte interest group that hopes to become a new sorority by the end of the 2014 spring semester.

A group of women are forming the potentially newest UNC Charlotte sorority.

Greek Life is one of the biggest organizations on campus with different types of fraternities and sororities for students to join. The various types of chapters include social, educational, cultural and other special interest chapters.

Zeta Epsilon Chi President Hayley Warren has been elected to be the head of the organization.

“Right now we are setup as an interest group through student organizations and we are in the process of finding the insurance policy coverage that we need to be a Greek Life organization,” said Warren.

Warren added that a prospective company in Colorado has showed interest in insuring the group.

Once the group has insurance coverage, they will meet with the UNC Charlotte Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to become incorporated and start setting up a National Board for the sorority.

Once the sorority breaks successful ground at the university, it will be able to spread to other campuses in the country as well.

When Zeta Epsilon Chi becomes official, they will join the UNC Charlotte Independent Greek Council.

“We’re all dancers and we would like to keep the sorority focused around dance so we thought that Independent Council would fit best,” said Warren.

The group’s motto is “Live, Dream and Dance” which when translated into Greek contains the letters Zeta, Epsilon and Chi at the start of each word.

The organization will hold a recruitment process in February.
