Delta Beta Chapter holds highest GPA out of all 26 Greek organizations at University of Tampa

The Delta Beta Chapter received the award on the University of Tampa campus for highest GPA out of all seven sororities in the Panhellenic Council and all 26 Greek organizations out of all in the university's Fraternity and Sorority Life.

"Our members work extremely hard to keep up with our academics to achieve greatness and maintain a great reputation on campus," said Angela Lemp, LAMP Editor. "Our chapter also received the Sorority of the Year for 2017 Award, to which is credited all of the hard work we put in not only to academics, but also into the community, on campus and within Greek life."

Delta Beta extends many congratulations to its seniors who graduated this past spring. "We are so excited to see where life takes them and we wish them great success in their endeavors," said Angela. "A handful of our sisters will go on to medical school in the fall. We are so proud of them!"


Member Remy Zais notes how Delta Zeta has influenced her academic journey and inspired her to make learning a lifelong goal. She said, "Growing up I was never a very confident person when it came to academics. Delta Zeta has surrounded me with people who give me the confidence me to believe in myself. I have mentors and friends who always help and support me, and because of them, I finally have the confidence I needed growing up when it comes to my classes."

Delta Beta Chapter (University of Tampa) donates $4,000 to speech and hearing and is ready for the new school year


As the Delta Beta Chapter readies itself for another exciting year on the Univeristy of Tampa campus, the chapter is proud of its efforts during the final months of the 2015-2016 year, holding multiple philanthropy events, fundraisers and more.

Delta Beta hosted its sixth annual Green Gala philanthropy event. Rachel Arcuri, Philanthropy Chairman, educated guests attending the event why Delta Zeta supports speech and hearing as our national philanthropy. "With the effort of Rachel and our sisters combined, we raised close to $4,000," Taylor Yianakopolos, LAMP Editor, said. "We truly appreciate the members of the community who came out to support our event, and our philanthropy."

Rachel spearheaded another event, the Turtle Trot, in which members of other student organizations on campus competed in a campus quest, raising more money for speech and hearing.

The chapter also won Greek Week for the third year in a row, enjoying the opportunity to connect with other Greek organizations on campus. "Our chapter continues to feel this connection with other organizations when we participate in Relay For Life," Taylor said. "This year every member participated in some way, including a few who donated over eight inches of their hair to cancer patients."

Jen said her Delta Zeta experience has served her well in her profession as a writer. "I was Academic Chairman for my chapter. That showed me how different people learn different ways, which changed how I approached interviewing subjects.

"This wasn't an easy book to write, but I think sharing these kinds of tough experiences lets people see someone else who has been there and come out on the other side, and gives people a way into talking about some really uncomfortable things."

For collegians or alumnae who are aspiring writers, Jen has some practical advice. "You're going to get rejected — a lot," she said.. It's normal. You need a tough skin. But the 'yesses' make it worth it."
