Some great things have been going on with the collegiate chapter during the month of December. We had initiation on the 5th of December. We had our Christmas party and Senior Ceremony and new positions were elected for the New Year. Then we enjoyed our break from classes during the Holidays. Pictured left are the Delta Zeta new graduates: Emily Balogh, Lisa Moore and Mindy Alisea. They all three graduated from the Shepherd nursing program Fall 2010.

December 5th was initiation for our 12 new members. They were greatly surprised by the Delta Zeta gifts their Big Sisters had made for them.


We celebrate the Holidays by doing a Secret Santa and by showing our love for each other. After the Christmas Party we had senior ceremony. We laughed and cried for our seniors but were also reminded by our Alumnae that visited, that Delta Zeta life does not end after graduation.

…being very involved with Delta Zeta even as an alumnus. After all, Delta Zeta isn't just about your undergraduate, active time as a member. You are a Delta Zeta for life and I plan on using that to my full advantage. Delta Zeta and my experience have helped shape who I am today and I cannot express how wonderful that is. I look forward to what is in store for me and to watch my wonderful organization grow and prosper and hope that Delta Zeta has such a great impact on other sisters as it has on me. -Mindy Alisea

Fall 2010 Graduates say a few words about their experience being an active member of Delta Zeta

Mindy Alisea

Delta Zeta has prepared me in so many ways for life as a graduate. As a New Member you learn all about Delta Zeta and its history and what it means to be a sister of such a wonderful organization. As a member, you have the opportunity to hold positions and grow within the organization developing various skills including leadership skills and social skills. Along with this, you also develop relationships with your sisters that I truly feel will be everlasting. From community service and various fundraisers to socials and lots of sisterhood activities, there isn't a moment of my Delta Zeta experience that I would care to omit. I cherish each moment. The development of these relationships also allows you to gain trust and learn how to work with one another to make an organization run and succeed. As an active member, I held various positions such as Publicity chairman and then Social chairman and then went to be a part of our Executive Board as Vice President of Programming to my more recent position as President. Working my way up with these positions has given me so much confidence and allowed me to be a leader for my organization which was a wonderful experience, one of the best I've ever had. These skills are ones that I feel will help me when I obtain my career as a Registered Nurse because, as a nurse, you need to have good people skills, know how to work well with others, know how to be a leader, and know how to make your facility run smoothly and successfully. You also need to have good time management skills, know how to handle difficult situations, know how to delegate, and how to prioritize. Delta Zeta has helped me to build upon these skills and to make them much better than they ever were. It was always engraved in my head that you get out of Delta Zeta what you put into it and this could not be more true. Throughout my Delta Zeta experience, I took hold of every opportunity that I possibly could and made the most of every moment. I hope that this is what every member will do and that they will realize that Delta Zeta is more than just a sorority to belong is a family of wonderful women and an experience of a lifetime. I plan on …

My past position was philanthropy and I loved finding new projects for us to do and get involved with. It was a very rewarding position and I loved how satisfied everyone seemed after we completed a project helping others. My experience in DZ was nothing but amazing. I met the most amazing girls that I am honored to call my sisters. I have learned so much from DZ and it has honestly helped me become the person I am today. I hope everyone keeps me posted on all of the future accomplishments I know DZ will attain. I want to stay as involved as I can and I plan to visit as much as possible! - Emily Balogh My experience with Delta Zeta has meant the world to me! I would have to say that being a DZ has helped to shape who I am today, and who I will be in the future. I came into this sorority knowing that I was going to build strong relationships with my sisters, but I am leaving with so much more than that. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined how many strong women I would meet that would touch my heart in the ways that you ladies have. You have all played a part in making me a more confident woman and I cannot thank you enough for that. Know that as I turn to the next chapter of my life, I am so proud to say that I am a Delta Zeta! -Lisa Moore
