Message from the Chapter President

Here at the University of Connecticut, Delta Zeta has given me a place to become my best self among similarly minded women. As we all navigate being a student with trying to balance our academics and social connections, Delta Zeta has given me an opportunity to prioritize what's important while helping me grow with all my sisters. I hope if you're looking into us you can take a minute to visit our website and social media to get a better look into what our experience is like!

President: Rachel Ruggiero

Interested in Delta Zeta?

If you're interested in joining Delta Zeta, we have basic requirements of every sister. Having these requirements helps us become more involved on campus and teaches us how to balance multiple expectations, which helps prepare us for the future. We have an academic standard which requires us to keep our GPA above a 2.7, a minimum amount of service hours we have to complete, and we encourage girls to participate in as many as our programs as possible. Almost every sister is involved with other clubs which helps us become a more well rounded chapter as well. If you're interested in joining, we have an interest form here: https://tinyurl.com/367sz362

All interested in joining a fraternity or a sorority at UConn must complete The First Step: An Orientation for Potential New Members and pass the quiz with a score of 20. Once you have completed the orientation, we encourage you to reach out to the chapter to find out more information about membership.
