Delta Zeta

University of Kentucky

Welcome to Delta Zeta at the University of Kentucky!

I am honored to represent the Alpha Theta chapter as President this year!

Delta Zeta is one of the oldest sororities at UK (established here in 1923). Our sisterhood is built on a foundation of service, leadership, intellectual growth and love for one another. Together we enjoy cheering on our UK sports teams (Go Cats!), sisterhood events, studying at William T. Young library, weekends at Keeneland, socials and formals, community service in the Lexington area and supporting Hearing & Speech philanthropies through our annual Mr. UK pageant in the fall and our newest event - DZ Dodge, a spring dodgeball tournament. Our chapter includes members from all over the country and is diverse, but we have a shared purpose in striving to live a gracious, authentic, and impactful life.  You will find our members active in organizations across campus as well as learning and serving all over the world. I invite you to browse this website and visit our social media sites for a look into what daily life is like as a UK Delta Zeta.

I joined DZ in the fall of 2014, have lived in our chapter house for three years and have held three leadership positions. My gratitude and love for Delta Zeta and the women of this chapter has only increased over time. From freshman year sitting in the preference ceremony and realizing I’d found my home away from home, to moving into the DZ house for the final time recently, I have found comfort and inspiration here.

Thank you to my sisters for the steadfast love--for the meaningful and memorable moments, the encouragement, the laughter, and for pushing me to think and consider and grow. I’m grateful to be surrounded by such giving, grounded and capable women.  Thank you to Delta Zeta for the endless opportunities, the guiding principles, and for your enduring support.

I have truly loved my time at 319 Columbia Terrace. I can’t wait to introduce our traditions and ceremonies to our newest members--to share the welcoming words and warmth of Delta Zeta--and to see how their unique attributes add to our chapter and the legacy of Delta Zeta at UK.
