College is a time for students to cultivate their interests. Whether it be Chemistry club, Pom squad or Greek Life there seems to be something for everyone

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc is a historically African American Greek-lettered sorority. It was founded on Jan. 13, 1913 by 22 women at Howard University.

On Oct. 8, a new line of 16 women initiated at Henderson.

Christina Murphy, junior psychology major is one of those women.

Murphy joined Delta Sigma Theta, Inc because, “it is a sorority that stands on the principles and values that I thoroughly believe in.”

Her favorite things about being a part of the sorority is the unity of her sisterhood. She feels she brings compassion and positivity to the sorority.

Murphy’s hope is for “Iota Delta to leave a legacy at Henderson for years and years to come.“

She went on to say, “Henderson has been without Delta Sigma Theta, Inc for a while so, as a member of Fall 20, I want to help rekindle our reputation. This includes hosting events, public service, and so many more activities.”

Grace Bizzell is a junior Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing & Data Science.

“I joined Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc because I loved what they stand for,” Bizzell said. “The hard work they do in the community to better it is what I admired and loved before joining the sorority.”

Her favorite thing about the organization is bonding and making lifelong memories with her sisters.

She believes her “personality and drive to get things done and help those around me” can help her serve her sorority.

Bizzell shares the same sentiments as Murphy. She wants to leave something behind. “Being a new member I hope to establish a great foundation for my future sisters to build on after I’m gone” she said.
