In September, the Omicron Omicron chapter added twenty-nine girls to their sorority. In just a few short months the new members have grown and learned how to truly love Delta Zeta. Many of the girls have said that this was the best decision they ever made and that they have found life-long friends already. They have also said that they realize that sisterhood is forever and never fails them. Our sisters will do anything for one another, whether it be a ride to work, help in a class that you are struggling in, or something as simple as a dinner date. Our sisters are always one phone call away. Our sisters can make such an impact and possibly change the world if they bring this kindness with them everywhere they go. So, this is the reason Delta Zeta is your forever home.

About Omicron Omicron Chapter
Omicron Omicron was founded on November 22, 1992 at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO. We've been around 26 years and going strong!
Our chapter is a part of Delta Zeta Region 9. We currently have a total of 83 members in our chapter and our average GPA is 3.57! For the academic year Fall 2016 through Spring 2017 our chapter has donated 2 service hours and $475.19!
On February 13, 2017, the Omicron Omicron Chapter (Lindenwood University) coordinated an event they entitled, “Smooch-A-Pooch.” The results for this first-time event were outstanding. Emily Walshaw explained, “Lindenwood truly showed its support for our organization with a wide variety of attendance to our event. We had athletes, fraternity men, women from other sororities, and many faculty members stop by for a little smooch from the pooches. It was incredible to see.”
Members volunteered their time and their pups for the puppy kissing booth, and it was just in time for anyone to receive a kiss for Valentine’s Day. They raised $327 for Starkey Hearing Foundation. Being on a small campus, it truly meant a great deal to the members of the Omicron Omicron Chapter to see the support this event received.
Monica Eckelkamp, Vice President of Philanthropy, said, “I was very pleased with the outcome of Smooch-A-Pooch. As it was a short event and the first time we had done it, raising over $300 for the Starkey Hearing Foundation was fantastic. I look forward to seeing this event as an annual Valentine’s Day fundraiser to spread our love for our cause of speech and hearing!”
The Omicron Omicron Chapter at Lindenwood University was recognized for the highest GPA on campus with a collective GPA of 3.43 for the Fall, 2015 semester. "Our women constantly strive towards academic success, and we host multiple weekly study nights and are always looking for ways to help other women in the chapter achieve their goals," said Madeline Raineri, LAMP Editor.
Freshman Monica Eckelcamp says that "I am really proud of our women for achieving the highest GPA on campus last semester, and we're shooting for it again this semester! This is proof that we hold our women to a higher standard not only socially but academically as well. Achieving the highest GPA on campus shows we can do anything with each other's support!"
The chapter hosted a successful Trivia Night to raised donations to The Painted Turtle camp. "We continue to succeed and excel not only on campus, but also off campus as well," said Madeline..
