The Delta Zeta Creed
To the world,
I promise temperance and insight and courage,
To crusade for justice,
To seek the truth and defend it always;
To those whom my life may touch in slight measure,
May I give graciously
Of what is mine;
To my friends,
Understanding and appreciation;
To those closer ones,
Love that is ever steadfast;
To my mind,
That I may walk truly
In the light of the Flame.
-- Dorothy Mumford Williams
Alpha Zeta (Adelphi University), 1939
To be a Delta Zeta means striving to live by the values and purpose set forth in our ritual and creed. By following these high ideals in our daily lives, our collegiate women succeed both in and outside of the classroom.
Within Delta Zeta we call it, "Enriching."
