Delta Zeta Sorority's New Member Class Begins AlcoholEdu Program

The Lambda Gamma Chapter of Delta Zeta Sorority at Jacksonville State University announces that its new member class will begin taking the AlcoholEdu course as part of the requirement for membership in the Sorority. Delta Zeta Sorority has required new members to take the online, confidential course since 2004.

AlcoholEdu is personalized for each student, and includes interactive exercises, surveys attitudes and behaviors, and has been developed by leading alcohol and prevention experts. The science-based course is taken by tens of thousands of students each year, and educates students about alcohol and its effect on the mind and body.

Delta Zeta Sorority is also conducting the I Have a Choice campaign, which works to educate college-age students about the dangers of alcohol abuse, inspiring them to examine their lifestyles and make informed decisions regarding this and other substances. Moreover, the campaign seeks to partner with officials and administrators in higher education, as well as the community surrounding campuses where Delta Zeta has chapters, to eradicate the abuse of alcohol among college students.

The campaign features key events to support National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week on October 16-22, 2005. Delta Zeta Sorority was founded on Miami University’s campus in Oxford, Ohio in 1902. The Sorority has over 190,000 alumnae and collegiate members in the United States and Canada. The Delta Zeta Foundation, a non-profit organization, makes possible gifts and support for scholarships, leadership, philanthropy, and education.
