A lETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Hello, my name is Ana Oljacic and I am the President of the Omicron Nu chapter of the Delta Zeta sorority at the University of Windsor. Delta Zeta is founded on the four pillars of service, sisterhood, scholarship, and leadership.
Our chapter has a strong presence in the community and we are always looking to give back to the community. Our Pink Goes Green environmental initiative includes an annual tree planting and street clean-ups. Over the summer, our girls partner with the Chatham-Kent Safety Village for Delta P.A.L.S., an interactive summer camp that empowers young girls in the community to develop confidence through the help and support of our sisters. We also have our national philanthropy: The Starkey Hearing Foundation. Their mission is to make a global impact by providing hearing aids to young children and those with low income. Our chapter hosts annual events like DZ Dodge, Hike for Hearing, and other fundraising events to contribute to Starkey. Our goal is to raise awareness about hearing loss and deaf culture and to lead the public in becoming a more inclusive community.
Delta Zeta is a sorority based on lasting friendship. When you join Delta Zeta, you become a member of a community of strong, inspiring, and empowering women who will support you throughout your university career and future endeavors. Your sorority sisters are your sisters for life and that is something more special than words can fully describe. Our pillar of scholarship emphasizes our commitment to and determination towards achieving and maintaining a high academic standard. You can find our girls studying on campus together daily and supporting each other throughout their academic goals.
Lastly, it is our hope to develop leadership skills in our women and guide them to become more confident in their every day lives on campus and in the community. Delta Zeta is a network of so many amazing women who can share and provide their experiences to help you succeed in areas of leadership. Our sisters are leaders in other organizations on campus: presidents, vice-presidents, student government representatives and several other positions of leadership. Our members are involved and demonstrate leadership qualities actively in the community and at the University of Windsor.
My hope is that if you see any of our girls on campus you will reach out, we would love to meet you! If you would like to learn more about Delta Zeta, our achievements and our sisterhood, feel free to send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
DELTA ZETA FUN FACTS
WE ARE TRULY ΔMAZING.
Delta Zeta was founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on October 24, 1902. When Alfa Lloyd, Mary Collins, Anna Keen, Julia Bishop, Mabelle Minton and Anne Simmons came together in 1902 to form a social sorority, they had a vision of lifetime sisterhood. That vision has evolved to a nation of 220,000 alumnae and collegiate members. Check out these quick facts about Delta Zeta!
Delta Zeta is an international sorority, with Omicron Nu (that's us!) being the only Canadian chapter. It was in the first group of sororities to receive a print by designer Lilly Pulitzer. Additionally, Delta Zeta has a national loan fund and many scholarships to aid members who may need financial assistance to finish their education.
The Omicron Nu Chapter at the University of Windsor was founded in 1992. We were the first chapter of Delta Zeta in Canada. The alumnae of our chapter live and work in all parts of the world.
