DELTA TAU DELTA
Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1858 at Bethany College, which is in present-day West Virginia. The Zeta Chi chapter of Southern Miss was colonized on April 13, 1986, and has lived by the knowledge that integrity is essential. The founding principles of truth, courage, faith and power have provided a guide for both the fraternity and its members. The chapter has been recognized ten times in its history with the Hugh Shields Award and 21 times as a Court of Honor chapter. These awards recognize the ten and 20 best chapters in the nation. Zeta Chi prides itself on its community and philanthropic endeavors with its partners, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Mississippi. Since starting Zeta Chi's work with cystic fibrosis, it has raised over $500,000.
