Delta Zeta believes in a woman’s potential to lead and serve; a potential that can only truly be reached through an education. As such, Delta Zeta strives to reach the highest point of academic excellence possible.
Members of the Alpha Sigma chapter of Delta Zeta are involved in numerous honor societies and organizations, including Order of Omega, Phi Eta Sigma, Presidential Scholars, Global Scholars, and Garnet & Gold Key, the oldest honorary society on Florida State’s campus.
We encourage our members to always put their academics first, pairing each new member with an older sister in the same major to serve as their personal academic adviser. Additionally, at the end of each semester, an Academics Dinner is held for alumnae and active members alike to celebrate the academic achievements of the past semester.
Post-graduation our sisters end up all over the world due to their hard work as Undergraduates. We currently have sisters working for Willis Towers Watson, Vera Wang, Teach for America, and serving time in the Peace Corps.
Delta Zeta believes that an education is the most fundamental tool a woman can have, a principle evident in the work ethic of each of its members.
In addition to assisting college-age women, scholarships are also available to graduate students and alumnae returning to school. These scholarships are awarded in recognition of academic excellence and financial need. Each year women are provided with the ability to continue their education because of the alumnae who contribute to these existing scholarships or by establishing new ones.
The Delta Zeta Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship distributed $210,000 in scholarship awards to sixty-six women during the 2016-2017 school year. These awards were granted to both collegians and alumnae. This is a high honor in the community, and Delta Zeta is beyond proud of those sisters who received the financial help based on their drive, academic abilities and passion for their chapter.
Adding onto the grants and scholarships, our chapter works overtime to provide our sisters with everything they need to feel comfortable and confident while pursuing their current and future goals. Providing women in our chapter with the ability to enjoy their collegiate and sorority experience with minimal financial stress is at the top of our priorities.
