Delta Zeta shares a common purpose: to make life fuller, more meaningful, more rewarding. It's not four years; it's for life. Two Letters. One Choice. KOB.

Delta Zeta Sorority was founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in 1902. Miami is dubbed the “Mother of Fraternities” because of the many prominent men’s fraternities which were founded there.

When six young women came together in 1902 to form a social sorority, they had a vision of lifetime sisterhood fostered by ideals that they cherished. These friends bonded quickly as they faced the challenges of starting a sorority on a male-dominated campus (women had just been given full status as students at Miami University in 1902).

Although fraternities were well-established by the time Alfa Lloyd, Mary Collins, Anna Keen, Julia Bishop, Mabelle Minton, and Anne Simmons met with Dr. Guy Potter Benton, then president of the university, to make their idea a reality, they faced derision from the male students of the university. This adversity served to bond them even closer.

They applied for and received the Articles of Incorporation from the State of Ohio. The date of incorporation, October 24, is Alfa Lloyd’s birthday and that date is a tribute to her, for she quickly showed a leadership that was effective in moving the Sorority forward. Delta Zeta became the first sorority to be founded at Miami University. The Founders then went on to lay the foundation for the Sorority which would have a national reach.

Today, Delta Zeta has enriched the lives of over 220,000 alumnae and collegiate members in the United States and Canada. The Delta Zeta Foundation, a non-profit organization, makes possible gifts and support for scholarships, leadership, philanthropy, and education that continue to enrich our members and enables them to enrich the lives of those in need.
