Each organization maintains its own traditions and heritage, but they all share the common ideals listed above.

Thoughts on Being Greek

How has being Greek positively affected/changed you?

Being Greek has played a very large role on me. I spent my freshman year here at WIU non-Greek, and I never did anything, wasn't involved, had a couple close friends I could count on. After joining Delta Zeta last year as a sophomore, I have allowed my leadership qualities to show and I have gotten extremely involved. I now hold a position in my house along with PHC, and I am also the president of Colleges Against Cancer. Being a sorority has shown me the opportunities that are out there and all you have to do is go for it.
