In the spring of 1959, a group of young women saw a need for a girl’s service group on the campus of Howard University. After various contacts and upon learning about Gamma Sigma Sigma, the young ladies initiated contact with the Xi chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma at the University of Maryland.

Alpha Eta Charter Members Are: Brenda Dendy, Carolyn Derr , Tiajuana Felton, Karen House, Sandra Hunt, Lola Jeffries, Faye Johnson, Mildred McBride, Janice Mitchell, Robbie McCaullay, Alma Powell, Ethelene Johnette Crockelle, and Jacqueline Wilson.

During the first year the Girl's Service Club grew to more than forty members, giving vast and necessary service to the Howard and Washington, DC communities.

After completing the necessary work to become a chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma, the Alpha Eta Chapter was chartered on June 15, 1963. Our chapter celebrates the distinction of having illustrious members such as famous soprano Jessye Norman (Spr. 1964), and many members who have been honored with membership into Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
