Ivy's Octet

"47 Years of Timeless Service"

The "Electrifying" Epsilon Mu Chapter was chartered on the campus of the University of North Texas on October 3rd, 1969. Epsilon Mu Chapter began when eight black women known as the "Ivy's Octet" had a vision for the campus of North Texas State University. The vision became a reality on October 3rd, 1969, when Alpha Phi Beta became the "Electrifying" Epsilon Mu Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated with their charter initiation group "Proud 26." These women worked to promote scholarship, service, and sisterhood.
