Sisterhood for good: sorority experience fulfilling, says first-year member

First-year French studies student Kailey Romanick says joining a sorority was a “fulfilling experience” for her.

Romanick sports the colours green and pink that represent her sorority, Delta Zeta. In the summer leading up to the start of her UWindsor career, Romanick was contacted by Delta Zeta and encouraged to join.

“When I first came to the University of Windsor, I thought that I wouldn’t know anyone,” she says. “But now I am best friends with all of the members of Delta Zeta.”

Delta Zeta members share activities like movie nights, going out to dinner, and potluck meals. The sorority also provides opportunities to get involved with charity organizations, Romanick says. Delta Zeta works with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Canadian Hearing Society, We Care For Kids, and more. Members recently participated in Derby Days, a race between campus sororities to see who can raise the most money for charity.

In March, Delta Zeta will raise money to donate to the Painted Turtle by doing a campout for kids. The Painted Turtle helps provide children with illnesses a fun camping experience while their medical needs are still met. Money is also raised to donate hearing aids to the hard-of-hearing.

“I think new students should join,” Romanick said. “You meet a bunch of new people and it’s an overall fulfilling experience.”
