Zeta Omega Chapter Celebrates Delta’s 101st Anniversary

By Nicole Webb

This week the Zeta Omega Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated celebrated the organization’s 101st founder’s day with “Delta Week 2014.”

 

With a week full of events to celebrate their founder’s day, the sorority started off their week with a Sunday morning worship service in the university’s Mary Dod Brown Memorial Chapel, continuing on with daily events such “Momentous Minds,” “Girl Code,” “REDy Set Move,” “Extreme Makeover,” a “Back to the Future” themed party, concluding with a community service project in collaboration with St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital on Saturday.

 

Each day’s event was based off of a specific time period including the 1920s, 1940s, 1980s and the 2000s. The week’s theme was inspired by one of the sorority’s historical songs “The Delta Train.”

 

“We had to think of a [way] to bring all of our

programs [together] in the form of a week…we used the ‘Delta Train’ as our method of transportation through time,” stated Corresponding Secretary of the chapter, Asia Black.

 

The women of Zeta Omega experienced a successful turnout with numbers reaching over 150 attendees at their “Girl Code” panel discussion.

 

“It was spectacular…I had fun and gained knowledge myself and according to our evaluations, so have the students who have attended,” said Black.

 

The Zeta Omega chapter celebrated 44 years this past December. The chapter was chartered on December 13, 1969 on the campus of Lincoln University. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is the second Black Greek sorority, founded on the campus of Howard University in 1913.
