Omega Mu Chapter Spreading the Zeta Renaissance

The Omega Mu Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. has continued to spread the Zeta Renaissance throughout Mercer University.  The chapter hosted Finer Womanhood Week the last full week of March that catered to empowering the mind, body, and spirit of any woman. 
The week started with church at the campus ministry then proceeded into Monday with a natural hair forum.  A local stylist was brought in to not only give tips for haircare but also a demo of 3 quick and easy hairstyles.  The forum served to be very informative for everyone.  Then, taking a page from State Conference, the Omega Mu chapter decided to host a self-defense class Tuesday for the girls on campus with an alum of the chapter coming back to teach simple defensive moves for any situation.  Wednesday’s event involved the collaboration of multiple cultural organizations with each cooking a dish that students got to judge.  Simple dance choreography was taught to Mercer women and served to be a confidence booster as well as a great time for all the girls in the room Thursday.  Then, on Friday, everyone had a great time bringing words to life as they used a quote to inspire the painting of a picture. 
The chapter didn’t forget about service as Omega Mu helped a senior residential facility as they hosted their annual Easter egg hunt, then a fundraiser for March of Dimes was held through a Spades tournament later that afternoon.
Throughout the entire week confidence boosting post-its were posted in women’s restrooms as well as a string of inspirational “pearls” hung over our banner.  The entire week was a success for the chapter as numerous amounts of students came out to show support and we hope that the trend continues as we finish out the year strong.
