TENNESSEE
DELTA ZETA

About Us

In 1902, Delta Zeta Sorority was founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

 

The Beta Lambda chapter at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville has been established on campus since 1933.

Our purpose, among a group of women, is to create a true and lasting friendship, to encourage one another in the pursuit of knowledge, to promote values-based living, and embrace social responsibility. 

 

With over 350 collegiate sisters, we carry six shared values which serve as a guide for our membership journey. they include friendship, curiosity, generosity, empowerment, citizenship, and belonging. 

 

Delta Zeta's colors are rose and green, while our mascot is the turtle.

A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT 

Hello,

On behalf of the women of Delta Zeta, I welcome you to our chapter!

My name is Jackie Tenney and I am honored and excited to be serving as the President of the

Beta Lambda chapter of Delta Zeta here at the University of Tennessee for 2023-2024. I

encourage you to explore our website to see just a snapshot about what our chapter has to

offer, and some of the activities that we love to be involved in on campus!

Our chapter is proud to currently have a diverse group over 350 women. Here at Delta Zeta, our

sisters find acceptance and opportunities to support growth, whether it is emotionally,

academically, or professionally. They are able to surround themselves with a group of women

that foster feeling respected, heard, and loved. Personally, these women have helped me grow

into the best version of myself every day throughout college, and I feel lucky to have found

these authentic and genuine friendships through 

Within my role as President, I work to continuously support this feeling of empowerment and

acceptance throughout our chapter, and make sure each members knows that they are valued

for who they are. I strive to uphold the values stated in our creed daily; providing temperance

in what we say, insight to those who need it, courage through all actions, and most importantly

to give graciously to our UT and Greek community as Volunteers. As President, it is my job to

encapsulate these values as a leader for our members. I am confident that our Delta Zeta

women make our community a better place and are a light in the lives of all of those around

them through their passion for our values.

I am eager and excited to share what wonderful accomplishments the women in our chapter

reach this upcoming year. My sisters in Delta Zeta have supported and encouraged me in ways I

never would have imagined before becoming a part of this sisterhood, and I will forever be

thankful for the women of Beta Lambda.

With love,

Jackie Tenney
