Organization and Chapter History

Delta Zeta Sorority is an enduring sisterhood based on a heritage of core values, academic excellence, leadership development, and service to others.  We were founded in 1902 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  Our six founders built our sorority on the foundation of sisterhood, scholarship, charity, and love. We have now grown to become the second largest national sorority having over 207,000 alumnae and collegiate members in the United States and Canada. Our chapter, Theta Kappa, was founded at UNO in 1963, and since then has continually inspired women to hold themselves to a higher standard through their commitment to academics, leadership, charity and service.

Our National Philanthropy is Speech & Hearing and The Painted Turtle Camp.  Every Spring we hold an intense game of tug-of-war over jello. Turtle Tug raises money for The Starkey Hearing Foundation and The Painted Turtle Camp. This past Spring, we held our last ever Turtle Tug. Although we are sad to see Turtle Tug go, we are very excited for our new event called Hike For Hearing! Delta Zeta’s official colors are pink and green with the turtle as our mascot, the roman lamp as our symbol, and the diamond as our gemstone. Each New Member of Delta Zeta is assigned a big sister to help guide her through her collegiate career and offers a wide range of leadership opportunities to its members, including executive board and chairman positions.  Each year the Delta Zeta Foundation awards scholarships in recognition of academic excellence and financial need.

We host an annual Spring Formal and Christmas Cocktail party, fraternity mixers, date nights, mother daughter teas, and so much more.  Check us out. We would love to meet you.
