A Message From Our VP Membership


Dear potential new members…

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Emma Stechschulte and I’m elated to serve as the 2024 Vice President of Membership for the Delta Zeta Kappa Chapter here at the University of Washington. As I write to you today, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and excitement. My journey with Delta Zeta began as a wide-eyed girl from the Bay Area, ready to move out of California and embark on something new. Little did I realize that stepping into the embrace of Delta Zeta would open my eyes to a world of sisterhood, support, and love that I never knew existed.
Before coming to the University of Washington, I thought I had a pretty good handle on life. I knew the best restaurants, the hidden beaches, and great friends. But when I stepped onto campus, I was hit with a wave of uncertainty and fear. The vastness of the university overwhelmed me, and I felt small and alone far away from my friends and family. It wasn't until Primary Recruitment that things began to fall into place.
Joining Delta Zeta wasn't just about finding friends or making memories; it was about finding a family. From the moment I walked through those doors, I was welcomed with open arms, warm hearts, and big smiles. In the embrace of Delta Zeta, I learned the true essence of support – the unwavering presence in both joy and sorrow, the comforting hand in moments of vulnerability, and how to lift each other up when we couldn't do it alone. 
I know it might seem daunting, entering the Greek community and going through recruitment. Believe me, I've been there. But let me tell you, there is a home for you somewhere. Within Delta Zeta, we hold dear to our hearts six core values: curiosity, friendship, empowerment, community, citizenship, and belonging. And in our chapter, we add another: diversity. We strive to create a space where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued, regardless of where they come from or who they are.
These girls, my sisters, have shown me a kind of love that knows no bounds. They've been there for me at my lows and celebrated my highs. It is my deepest wish that you find that same sense of belonging wherever your journey takes you. So if you're curious about Delta Zeta, I invite you to check out our Instagram and TikTok  @uwdeltazeta. And to the future members of the class of 2024, I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you.


With Delta Zeta love, 

Emma Stechschulte

Vice President of Membership
