Moreover, academics are a priority in fraternities and sororities. When students join Delta Zeta, they become part of a larger group of students who value their academic goals. The Delta Zeta chapter and its advisors understands what the new member is facing and can provide support in many areas, including academic advisors, study hours and tutoring.
