About Theta Eta Chapter
Theta Eta was founded on May 8, 1962 at Creighton University in Omaha, NE. We've been around 56 years and going strong!
Our chapter is a part of Delta Zeta Region 8. We currently have a total of 170 members in our chapter and our average GPA is 3.48! For the academic year Fall 2016 through Spring 2017 our chapter has donated 795 service hours and $2505.00!
Aly Schreck, a member of the Theta Eta Chapter at Creighton University, is dedicated to lifelong learning, and credits Delta Zeta with inspiring her to make that journey.
"I realized early on in my academic journey that I excelled most when I was surrounded by people who were goal oriented and determined to succeed," Aly said. "In coming to college, I searched to find this group of people, and discovered it when I joined Delta Zeta. The women of the Theta Eta Chapter at Creighton University value higher education, and the number of Delta Zeta campus tutors, Dean's list recipients and independent researchers support this fact.
"In seeing their efforts and successes, I was inspired to serve as the Editor-in-Chief of our campus newspaper, volunteer to edit scholarship applications for local high school students, and add two minors to my degree. I believe that with knowledge comes responsibility, and I have seen my Delta Zeta sisters put their knowledge into motion around the community. Through volunteering weekly at an after-school program for middle school students and working independently to raise funds for local charities, I have taken part in and witnessed Delta Zeta's commitment to using education as a tool to better one another as well as the greater community."
The Theta Eta Chapter truly supports one member of the chapter in the Hike for Hearing, Gabby Thro. The chapter is hoping to send Gabby on a Starkey mission trip to help those with hearing challenges.
Gabby is a sophomore who truly believes in the cause. ""Before I joined Delta Zeta," she said, "I had no idea how prominent hearing issues were. And I think that's how all challenges are. You don't understand how significant it is until you experience a situation that hits home to you. Delta Zeta inevitably encouraged me to understand how common hearing challenges are. And, how frequent these occur in people without the means to do something about it.
"I thank Delta Zeta for not only advocating but for taking action on this extremely prevalent, yet little-known issue that so many people face," said Gabby.
