A letter from our President

Hello –

On behalf of the Beta Lambda women of the Delta Zeta Sorority, welcome to our chapter!  My name is Carolyn Cantrell, and I am honored and privileged to be serving as the President of Delta Zeta at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.


Temperance, Insight, and Courage. As Delta Zeta women, we strive to uphold the promises in our creed daily: providing temperance in what we say, insight to those who need it, and courage through all actions.


Giving Graciously. We are constantly excelling our involvement on UT’s campus as well as in the Greek community. Not only are we enjoying time with our sisters, but also enriching the local and global community to the best of our ability through philanthropy and service – giving of our time, talents, and financial means to those who need it most.


A Love that is Ever Steadfast. Being a Delta Zeta woman has brought me endless support, meaningful friendships, and memories to last a lifetime. Through acts of kindness and sisterhood Delta Zeta becomes a family within our community, that serves as a home away from home.


Delta Zeta is a lifelong commitment. Priding ourselves on our academic achievement, philanthropy, community service, community involvement, leadership development, and I have to admit, having some pretty fun sisterhood and social events too!


I encourage you to take some time to explore our website, seeing all that our chapter has to offer. I also encourage every student of The University of Tennessee to look into, not only Delta Zeta, but the entire Greek community in every council. Going Greek at the University of Tennessee and making Delta Zeta my home were easily the two best decisions I have ever made. Each day I am inspired and encouraged by my sisters and hope nothing less for you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to me anytime!


Thank you for visiting and Go Vols!


Carolyn Cantrell

President, The University of Tennessee
