W I N T E R / S P R I N G U O F L M A G A Z I N E | 4 1 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.
