Delta Zeta Up-Close:
If you take a step through the doors of 1423 North Jordan, you’ll immediately notice the undeniable bond between girls who are not only sorority sisters, but also best friends. With over 130 members, the ladies of DZ value sisterhood, scholarship, and of course fun. “My favorite part about being a Delta Zeta is the fact that we are all so diverse yet somehow there’s something magical that makes us all click,” says junior Annie Thompson. “I enjoy the time with my sisters and literally never want to graduate.”
“The memories I’ve made so far in DZ are unforgettable. I love it how we can spend hours in the kitchen just talking and goofing around when we know we should really be doing our homework. I can’t imagine my life without all of my sisters,” says sophomore Haley Lemmons.
