Monday, May 18, 2009

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – The national organization of the Delta Zeta Sorority has announced that the chapter at St. Cloud State University is number one in Region VIII and one of the top two Delta Zeta chapters in the nation in number of average community service hours per member.  Nationally, the only chapter to have more service hours was the Epsilon Delta chapter from Concord University.

During the most recent semester calculated, the women of Delta Zeta completed 80 service hours per active member.

Delta Zeta members at St. Cloud State participate in a variety of philanthropic activities every year, including Tramp-o-line-a-thon, Adopt a Block/Adopt a Highway, campus events, community service projects like Trick or Treat for the food shelf, collaboration with the university on an all-student service day called "Into the Street," and a partnership with U-Choose to provide an alcohol and responsible decision making program for students called "House Party 101."

The local chapter of Delta Zeta, known as the Theta Mu Chapter, has been at St. Cloud State since January 1966.  More than 600 women have belonged to the chapter.

Nationally, Delta Zeta is known for serving the speech and hearing impaired, Painted Turtle Camp, Gallaudet University, the House Ear Institute and the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
