April 21, 1990 the Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter added an additional school to their charter. That school was William Paterson College. Because Zeta has grown tremendously in the last few decades, William Paterson University has since branched off and developed their own chapter. Since the fall of 1979, the Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter has inducted many young women who focus on the dreams and ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. As of March 2004, the Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter has inducted 91 young women into the chapter.At the 1996 International Boule held in Dallas, Texas, the Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter won its first International Award for the Best Undergraduate Chapter Report, completed by Soror Stacey Banfield (fall 94).

Green (fall 94), won an award for the 1st and only undergraduate member to donate $300.00 to the National Capital Campaign at the Grand Boule of 1996. Xi Iota Chapter was also awarded the best chapter scrapbook at the New Jersey State Conference of 2001.The Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter has done many community service projects that they are very proud of. Campus clean-ups, childcare center volunteerism, and tutorial study groups are just a few of the programs that the Everlasting Xi Iota Chapter has been apart of.Former Xi Iota members to hold the position of advisor for this chapter are Soror Sharon Pearce (sp.85) and Soror Jorelle S.
