Delta Zeta and You
Delta Zeta can be an important part of your collegiate experience as it provides sisterhood, encourages scholarship, teaches the value of service to others, fosters responsibility in upholding standards of conduct and core values, and develops your sense of self and social strengths.
All Potential New Members must have a cumulative GPA of 2.7. Every sister is required to maintain above a 2.7 Cumulative GPA throughout her time as an active sister.
Community Service Requirements:
All Members must participate in approximately 18 community service hours per semester.
The time commitment varies from month to month, but the first semester/quarter is the most time intensive as the new member goes through our chapter's education program. The time spent in this program will give you the opportunity to develop leadership and time management skills, learn about the history of Delta Zeta, develop friendships and become involved on campus.
Our chapter has weekly chapter meetings and other mandatory events (philanthropies, sisterhoods, services and initiation) throughout the year, but they are planned well in advance, and all members receive a calendar at the beginning of each semester. The more you participate in our chapter, the more you will get out of being a member!
What does it cost to be a member?
The membership fees you pay are used in many ways. First and foremost, the majority of chapter dues stay within the chapter to meet expenses such as recruitment, new member education programs, college programs, social activities, rent or mortgage payments and local Panhellenic dues. Nationally, the Sorority makes other disbursements such as insurance, business expenses for National Headquarters, travel expenses and membership services.
What about hazing?
Hazing is considered a crime in many states. Delta Zeta recognizes hazing as a most destructive and meaningless activity. It has no place in any form of sorority programming and is inconsistent with our standards, goals and values. Members are required to sign documentation stating that they have reviewed and understand Delta Zeta's risk management policies.
