A word from MADAM President
WELCOME TO DELTA ZETA AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WINDSOR!
Truthfully, I never expected that I would fit the type of what I thought someone in a sorority had to fit. Being a first generation member of Greek Life, I didn't know what to expect when the women of Delta Zeta reached out to me in Fall 2018.
My name is Dakota Jasutis, and I am honoured to serve as the current Chapter President. I encourage you all to take a look through our website to catch a glimpse of what our sisterhood is all about, and please, feel free to reach out to any one of us.
At the University of Windsor, students are given numerous opportunities in leadership and are encouraged to find their place in the world. Our chapter helps provide our members with these opportunities and give them a support system of empowering women to stand by them through it all.
In Fall 2018, I moved almost four hours away from home to attend the University of Windsor. I was scared, nervous, anxious, you name it, I was worried. I wanted to find my home away from home, I wanted to get involved and learn everything I could about the place I was moving to. That's where Delta Zeta comes in.
I was so nervous during my first recruitment event, I almost didn't go! A room full of girls I had never met before? Absolutely terrifying, but these incredible women were some of the most welcoming people I had ever met. I had never stepped in a room and immediately thought that I belonged there until meeting all these amazing women. The women of the Delta Zeta Sorority made me feel welcome right away, they made it clear that this was where I could find my home away from home, all while getting involved with my community and my campus. These sorority women were leaders on campus and in their communities. They held themselves and each other to high academic standards. They championed philanthropic causes for people in our community and people around the world. They knew that they were part of something bigger and had to consistently crusade for justice. They empowered each other and every woman and human that they met. Almost three years later, and every girl I've met along the way are still the same champions of empowerment that they were back in 2018.
Human nature inevitably results in change, change in yourself and change in the world around you. I have changed so much in my almost 4 years at the University of Windsor, and I can proudly credit Delta Zeta for so much of my journey. Delta Zeta enabled me to have a direct impact on my community and work with over 70 women on bettering the world. Through Delta Zeta, I have developed leadership skills in myself that I could not have even imagined before I joined. I have had the honour of meeting women from around the world that empower me and push me to be my true, authentic self. I have met some of the most generous, compassionate, intelligent, and inspiring women. My Delta Zeta sisters empower me everyday to be more than I ever imagined.
Delta Zeta is my home. We empower each other to become better versions of ourselves. We hold each other to a higher standard because we know what we are capable of. Delta Zeta is a group of diverse women who are making a difference in each other’s lives, and in the lives of everyone we meet. We are future lawyers, engineers, accountants, teachers, medical professionals, and more. We constantly strive to give our best selves to the world and to create a soft place for each of our sisters to land. The sisterhood and belonging I have found in Delta Zeta is remarkable and steadfast.
Our sorority was founded on values to be empowered to lead and serve, and to be global citizens, and to see the friendship and belonging we will take on our journey with us. We hope you are encouraged by our purpose to be lifelong learners and to give graciously. We can’t wait to share who we are with you!
With Love that is Ever Steadfast,
