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 with our core values of friendshsip, curiosity, generosity, citizenship, empowerment, and belonging. 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. We are partnered with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, The Painted Turtle Camp, and Gallaudet University. We do several events throughout the school year that benefit these national partners as well as the Bright School, a local school for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing. During the school year, we host various fundraising events such as Sunflowers for Starkey, Tulips for Turtles, and our annual "Claws for a Cause," a crawfish boiling competition. We also host various social and educational events such as formals, mixers, and leadership retreats to provide a well-rounded, enriching membership experience.
