In the spring of 1950, a group of college educated women felt the need to have the presence of a public service organization present on college campuses across the northern region of New Jersey. These ladies desired to become members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and worked hard to express their interest to the national headquaters. At this time, the sorority was under the direction of the 10th National President Soror Dororthy I. Height. On May 26, 1950, the Delta Zeta Chapter was chartered as the FIRST collegiate chapter in the state of New Jersey. The Kappa Sigma chapter (now known as the North Jersey Alumnae Chapter) saw to it that these young, educated women who attended various colleges and universities throughout the North Jersey area, would receive their opportunity to add to the legacy of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
