The omicron chapter of Delta Zeta held here at The University of Pittsburgh is currently comprised of 70 members, making it the largest sorority on campus.

Delta Zeta was founded in 1902 at Miami University, located in Oxford Ohio. The sorority was founded by a group of six women. These six women established a code comprised of morals and standards that each sister lives by today.

 Fraternity parties, mixers, date parties and formals are all typical stereotypes of why girls join sororities. No, Iím not going to sit here and deny any of these. We mix with other fraternities and party on the weekends. However, a sorority is so much more. Itís a study buddy, a friend, a shoulder to cry on and a sister. Upon rushing in the spring of 2001, I found all of these aspects in Delta Zeta.

 Choosing a sorority is like choosing a home. When you feel completely at ease and comfortable you have found it, a sense of belonging a place to call home. The sisters of this house (Delta Zeta) immediately made me feel as though I had known them already.

 The girls I talked to during rush all seemed to share a common interest or characteristic with me. A few of the sisters took the same classes as I did or had a similar friend in common. The down to earth, easy-going atmosphere stood out in Delta Zeta against the other houses I visited. Within thirty minutes I knew where I belonged. As I signed my bid I made a decision that will affect me for the rest of my life.

 I never once regret the decision I made last spring during rush. Upon becoming a member of this house I found a group of 70 mature young women whom I am proud to call my sisters. Each member brings their own unique trait to the group. I know the friendships I have made and the experiences I have had, I will carry with me through life, making me a stronger person. Together, we share everything from parties and boys to tears and hot chocolate. All with the bond only that of a sister can truly understand. With these traits, bonds, and experiences we have built Delta Zeta.
