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
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.
President, Beta Lambda Chapter
