In 2012, Delta Zeta greatly expanded its philanthropy events beyond what had been accomplished in previous years. For the first time, the sorority participated in Delta Zeta’s Learn to Listen Week. During the spring semester, they also participated in a variety of philanthropic events including a retreat for the children of the Mansfield Sertoma Club, a “Coin War” between the different academic classes of their sisters and the “Minute To Win It” event.
The service event of which they are most proud was their Killarney Rose Ball held on October 6th. The event was a silent auction and dinner at the university which was attended by parents, friends and alumni of Delta Zeta. Through this event, they were able to raise $7,505.16 which was distributed evenly among their local philanthropy and national philanthropies. This event raised the most money that Theta Psi has raised from a single philanthropy event to date. Overall, in 2012, the Theta Psi Chapter donated nearly $9,500 to charity.
A profound moment in 2012 for Delta Zeta was receiving the Highest Scholarship in the Region and the Norma Minch Adrisek Award for Outstanding Chapter in the Region. These are awards they have received for the second consecutive year in a row at their State Day. It is an honor for their chapter to have hosted Delta Zeta's 2013 State Day at Ashland University. Through their driving passion for philanthropy, commitment to overall excellence and love and dedication to their sisterhood, 2012 was an exciting and inspiring year to be a Delta Zeta at Ashland University.
