Lambda Zeta History
Lambda Zeta (LZ) undergraduate chapter was chartered May 8, 1989 at Binghamton University by two magnificent women by way of Theta Tau Chapter (Renaissance). These women were Vivian Cohen and Joy Smith who were seeking to make a difference through community service and education.
The Lambda Zeta chapter has traditionally had great ties with the campus and local Binghamton communities through their programming and community service work. Some past programming held by the chapter include:
Bowling for books
Collaborative events focused on women's health
Blue and Gold make Green - Environmental awareness event
Sleeping for the Homeless
Project Wee Savers
Annual Women's Empowerment Banquet & Scholarship Reception
Many of our alumni sorors are still active in the sorority at the graduate level today and continue to serve the communities where they live. A LZ woman is unique and powerful in her own right and is a true champion of sisterhood, scholarship and service.

"Lambda Zeta exemplifies grit and drive. The Sorors of Lambda Zeta are incredibly hardworking, diligent, and despite reaching for our own professional aspirations, have maintained a bond of sisterhood that has no comparison. Being amongst this sisterhood is one of my greatest achievements"
