Recruitment & Work Week

Starting off the 2019-2020 school year was very exciting with 52 girls moving into the house and two weeks of recruitment activities. We started off Work Week with a special visit from the Past National President, Diane Stecher, who gave a lovely presentation over Delta Zeta’s philanthropy and the global impact we are making with the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
At the end of the recruitment week we celebrated welcoming 69 new members into our sisterhood. We couldn’t be more excited for them to begin their Delta Zeta journey!

Blood Drive: The Bloody Cup

Delta Zeta brought home the Bloody Cup, for the 10th time, for being the sorority with the most blood donated at the campus blood drive! We are so proud of our members for their dedication to serving others. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks hosts blood drives on campus twice a year for students to participate in to provide blood for natural disasters, and surrounding hospitals. This year we were able to bring home the cup and the first cash price donation of $300 for the Starkey Hearing Foundation! Coming up, Delta Zeta and the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks will be cohost a blood drive together at the Delta Zeta Epsilon Nu Chapter house that is open for the community to donate. We can't wait to make a difference on our campus and in our community!

Hoops for Hearing!

This year was our first year for our philanthropy event called Hoops for Hearing. Hoops for Hearing is a basketball tournament that we hosted involving different groups of fraternity men on our campus. The games were setup to be 3 on 3, and we started off the day with 7 teams total. Each game had its own intensity as every team wanted to move forward in the bracket. Our reward for the winning team was t-shirts for each member of the team, plus a $100 donation to the winning fraternities philanthropy. The men of Sigma Pi won 4 games to be crowned the winner of the event. Over all Delta Zeta-Epsilon Nu made $1,600 to go towards the Starkey Hearing Foundation. We are so thankful for the participants and our sisters that make these events happen!

Missouri State Delta Zeta Galentine's Day

Earlier this semester the Epsilon Nu chapter hosted our annual Galantine's Day. This event involves getting our sisterhood together to host girls at Missouri State University and other campus sororities with Valentine's day treats and activities. The event included pop-up shops from Springfield boutiques as well as giveaways. Just in this one event, we were able to raise over $1,200 for the Starkey Hearing Foundation! We want to give a special shoutout to our VP of Philanthropy, Quinn Peterson, and also to our sisterhood chair members, Jessie Dencker and Rachel Delaney! We are so lucky to be able to have a hardworking chapter and can't wait for our next philanthropy event, Hoops for Hearing, on March 24.
