Founded in 1902 at Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio, Delta Zeta strives to join its members in a strong sisterhood while stressing individuality and personal development. Delta Zeta's motto, "May the flame endure," reflects the eternal flame of sisterhood, love, and friendship shared by the sisters of the Zeta Pi chapter.
Delta Zeta members believe in the value of service and leadership and are actively involved both on campus and in the community. From the Miss UGA Pageant to mentoring in local schools, members possess diverse interests and are involved in a wide range of organizations. Members are involved in athletic activities including Diamond Darlings, UGA Crew, Hoop Girls, the equestrian team and a variety of intramural sports. Delta Zetas take pride in their involvement in organizations such as Arch Society, Order of Omega, Golden Key and Mortar Board.
Delta Zeta has long served its philanthropy, the speech and hearing impaired, on the local and national level. Nationally, it supports Gallaudet University, House Ear Institute and The Starkey Foundation, and locally it has started its own grant, "The Turtle Grant," for the hearing impaired in Athens. Every fall, DZ hosts Wing Bash to benefit this worthy cause. In the spring, DZ hosts a paintball tournament to benefit its newest philanthropy, The Painted Turtle, a camp founded by Paul Newman for children with serious illnesses. Delta Zeta is involved in many other service organizations on campus, such as ugaMIRACLE, HERO, Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life.
The sisters of Delta Zeta welcome you to the University of Georgia and wish you the best of luck in Recruitment.
