A Note from our Recruitment Chair
Dear Potential New Member of Delta Zeta,
My name is Michelle Perley and I am honored and privileged to serve as the Delta Zeta Vice President of Membership. I cannot express the joy and excitement I feel when I begin to think about meeting you all during Fall Formal Recruitment.
The anticipated week of Recruitment is all about you. I can assure you that the members of the Beta Xi chapter have been hard at work preparing for your arrival. The six founders of our sorority began Delta Zeta based on values of sisterly love and friendship, academics, philanthropy and service, and the promotion of excellent character. Sincerely, the members of this chapter look forward to exemplifying these pillars of our sorority to you.
I hope that you are excited to find your “home,” here in Delta Zeta, just as I did only a short time ago. I was drawn to this amazing chapter by the radiating joy from the members, the tradition upheld throughout the week, connecting with girls from all over the country, and the honest love for their chapter and sisters that each of my hostesses displayed.
My sisters and I can’t wait to meet you and wish you all the best of luck during Recruitment!
Michelle Perley, Vice President of Membership

Meet our New Member Educator!
The Mama Turtle is the Vice President of New Member Education. She prepares our New Members for initiation by teaching them Delta Zeta history, our creed, rituals, values, and general processes. This year, the Pledge Class of 2018's New Member Educator is Kelly Mordecai.
Why did you decide to become the NME?
I wanted to be the New Member Educator because of my love for welcoming people along with my need to serve. I had an amazing New Member period and I want to try my best to create the same for all our new members.
What are you most excited for during your term?
This upcoming fall I am most excited to get to know so many different people from all over the country and share my love for Delta Zeta and Auburn University with them. Being so far away from home I really needed the sense of home and found that through Delta Zeta and can’t wait to create that with all of our new members.
What is your favorite thing about Detla Zeta?
My favorite thing about Delta Zeta is the unconditional support that you get from each girl. It does not matter if its related to Delta Zeta or something completely random, there will be 5 girls there to comfort you, support you, cheer for you and love on you.
What do you want the Potential New Members to know before Fall Formal Recruitment?
I want everyone to know that everything happens for a reason and to trust the process. It is a rough week, but the reward of running home to people that have been planning for you is worth it, no matter where you end up. Also don’t forget that we are all just as nervous as you are. Remember to take deep breaths and that you are amazing.
