What does it mean to be a Delta Zeta?
Being a Delta Zeta means much more than wearing pink and green letters on your shirt. It means committing yourself to the values that promote growth to become global citizens, lifelong learners, and empowered women. Delta Zeta strives to live the values of our ritual and creed in our daily lives while exemplifying what it means to be Greek.
Delta Zeta Creed
To the world,
I promise temperance and insight and courage,
To crusade for justice,
To seek the truth and defend it always;
To those whom my life may touch in slight measure,
May I give graciously
Of what is mine;
To my friends,
Understanding and appreciation;
To those closer ones,
Love that is ever steadfast;
To my mind,
That I may walk truly
In the light of the Flame.
- Dorothy Mumford Williams
