"OUR PROMISE TO OUR SORORITY AND OUR COMMITMENT TO ENRICH THE WORLD ARE FOR A LIFETIME."
Delta Zeta Sorority was founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 1902 by six young women. A male dominated campus at the time, Delta Zeta was the university's first sorority. Founded with a vision of lifetime sisterhood, Delta Zeta has enriched the lives of over 247,000 alumnae and collegiate members from 165 collegiate chapters across the United States and Canada.
The Delta Zeta Omicron Chapter was founded at the University of Pittsburgh in 1916. Since then, our chapter has enabled its members to grow and prosper through Delta Zeta's commitment to making life fuller, more meaningful, and more rewarding.
"The purpose of this sorority shall be to unite its members in the bonds of sincere and lasting friendship, to stimulate one another in the pursuit of knowledge, to promote the moral and social culture of its members, and to develop plans for guidance and unity in action; objects worthy of the highest aim and purpose of associated effort. The purpose of this sorority shall be advanced through the National Convention, the National Council, and the college and alumnae chapters."
