Start a Collegiate Chapter

It is always exciting to welcome a new chapter to the Delta Zeta family. From the expansion of the second Delta Zeta chapter in 1908 to today, Delta Zeta Sorority has always been open to the opportunities to extend our sisterhood and provide women the opportunity to share in the benefits of membership.

Our recent new chapter openings include:

Pi Rho, University of West Georgia
Pi Sigma, University of Texas/Dallas
Pi Tau, Sacred Heart University
Pi Phi, Cleveland State University
Pi Chi, Western Kentucky University
Pi Psi, California State University/San Marcos
Pi Upsilon, Long Island University Post
Pi Omega, Johnson & Wales University

We recognize that the first ten years of a new chapter are critical to its long-term success within the Greek community. Delta Zeta’s goal is to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with the host institution where our collegiate chapter is located. Delta Zeta knows that a colony’s success depends on a good working relationship with the university community, the strength and support of our alumnae and strong commitment from our national organization.

When researching a potential host institution for a new chapter, Delta Zeta carefully considers the following:

  • Academic reputation of the school
  • Interest in Greek life on campus and stable or increasing school enrollment
  • Support and interest on the part of local alumnae and nearby Delta Zeta chapters
  • Support from the campus administration and/or College Panhellenic

Delta Zeta plans new chapter installations starting with colonies in the following communities:

Fall 2016 University of Akron
Fall 2016 Bucknell University
Fall 2016 Murray State University
Fall 2016 University of Texas/Arlington
Fall 2017 University of Oregon
Fall 2017 University of Connecticut
