In the 1980s, the Delta Zeta House had holes
in the ceiling, recalls Jeanine Triplett, 82A,
85GU. "It was green and yellow — avocado to
be exact," Triplett, national president for Delta
Zeta, told a crowd of supporters at the house
on Oct. 19.
It wasn't really a "house," anyway. They just
used it for meetings. That's all changed. In
October, alumni, friends, family and university
leadership gathered to mark the building's
recent expansion, one of many since Triplett's
undergraduate years. The house can be home
to 17 young women instead of nine, and it is
decorated in chic colors and patterns.
According to Triplett, the renovation of the Delta
Zeta House is just the latest achievement for
the university community in reviving Greek life
at UofL. "It's amazing the growth of the Greek
system," Triplett said during the ceremony. "It
is a tribute to (university leadership) and their
commitment to Greek life and student life."
Greek population has swelled to more than
1,900 students and 30 chapters, under
leadership from the Office of Student
Involvement in the Division of Student Affairs.
This growth reflects UofL's unfailing
commitment to creating more engagement
opportunities for the top students that the
university now attracts.
GROW AS UofL COMMITS TO
VIBRANT CAMPUS EXPERIENCE
