Chapter History

The Delta Zeta chapter of ZTA was founded on May 16, 1959.  Before achieving national affiliation with Zeta Tau Alpha, the fifty-five charter members belonged to a local Philomethean Literary Society known as the "Philos."  Philos, is a term derived from the Greek word philomath, meaning "a lover of learning." The Zetas at SHSU have continued their love of friendship and learning for over sixty years now.
