Zeta Phi's sister travels to The Painted Turtle Camp

Zeta Phi's sister, Taylor Bronowicz, was able to get the pleasure of traveling to The Painted Turtle Camp this past summer. The camp being our international philanthropy, this was a great honor!

Here are a few words from Taylor about her experience.

I’ve been lucky enough to experience the magic of The Painted Turtle twice now. It has showed me how something as simple as a five day camp can change the lives of children. During my first summer, I got to see that many of the boys from the oldest group came back knowing just about every single person at camp, including staff and volunteers. This year I got to work with the youngest group of girls. For many of them, it was their first time away from home and their first time at camp. It was amazing to watch these girls come to camp as shy strangers and leave as best friends. The girls were so excited to have the opportunity to participate in so many different activities that camp has. The experience that The Painted Turtle gives its campers cannot be replaced. These children go home having had new experiences, gained leadership skills, new friends and an endless amount of confidence.

Zeta Phi Receives Crest Award and Founders Award

At the 53rd Delta Zeta National Convention in San Francisco, Zeta Phi was given the Crest Award and Founders Award. Zeta Phi's president, Lauren Debiec, and Collegiate Chapter Director, Jen Walters, were there to receive the awards.


Here are a few words from Lauren about her experience at the convention:

"At the 53rd Delta Zeta National Convention in San Francisco, I had the opportunity to connect with sisters across the country, attend business meetings to help our sorority grow, and learn more about our wonderful philanthropy partners. I was able to attend an invitation service for Jenni Luke and also help spread awareness for speech and hearing in San Francisco. My favorite part was when our chapter was awarded the Crest Award and the Founders Award. During my time here, I saw how strong and passionate our sisters are all over the country and what amazing things are to come for Delta Zeta!"

Two Zeta Phi members receive the 'Rising Star' award at Slippery Rock University

The Rising Star title is awarded to students that influence positive change and inspire peers, faculty, and professional staff, while effectively delegating, communicating, and empowering an organization's members. These students balance academic life with leadership opportunities and stand out within the organization.

Delta Zeta- Zeta Phi members Halley Alexander and Julia Aloisi received this award on April 25th, during the 2017-2018 school year, both well deserving of the honorary title.

Halley Alexander is an Early Childhood and Special Education major. She is a peer mentor through the First-Year leader scholar program. Halley also recently was inducted into Order of Omega. As well as Delta Zeta, she is part of Early Childhood club and Autism Speaks.

Julia Aloisi is dual major in Integrated Marketing Communication and Philanthropy and Nonprofit Management. She is involved in the Student Nonprofit Alliance, Lambda Sigma, and Lambda Pi Eta on campus. She has recently traveled with SRU to St. Lucia on a Care Break trip.

Academic Achievement

Zeta Phi chapter at Slippery Rock University was awarded with an academic achievement award for the 2017 school year. Zeta Phi holds the highest GPA on campus.

Zeta Phi's sister, Julia, travels to St. Lucia

Our wonderful sister, Julia, had a wonderful opportunity to travel to St. Lucia this winter. Here is brief story about her experience:

"My name is Julia Aloisi. I am an Integrated Marketing Communication and Philanthropy and Nonprofit Management major here at Slippery Rock University. This past winter break, I traveled to Soufrière, Saint Lucia for 12 days. While in Saint Lucia, I taught dental health education to students in the infant schools (Grades K-2). I took 300 dental kits that included a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and flossers for the children. I also brought them coloring pages and a dental brushing chart to help keep their brushing on a routine schedule. I was also able to work with children in the special education school. However, I did not spend all my time working with children. I also had the opportunity to conduct a leadership workshop for young adults in Soufrière that are working in nonprofit organizations. I have always had a passion for traveling but this experience taught me so much about myself and the lifestyle of the Lucian people. I hope to return to Soufrière one day soon! Until then, my next adventure will be to Athens, Greece during Spring Break 2018 to work in local nonprofit organizations and tour the beautiful Ancient Greece."
