“We love all of the events but the one we are looking forward to the most is the parade,” Delta Zeta Academics and Social chair Linzi Pate said. “We get to chant and show off our float to San Angelo.”
Diversity Club President Anahi Pienda said their club has never participated in Homecoming activities before but this year they are changing that.
“By participating in events, we could show others we care and want to give a helping hand with anything the campus needs,” Pienda said.
Both Pienda and Pate said their organizations and members hangout together and bond.
“One of our values is we go by sisterhood,” Pate said. “We are always hanging out together even when there is nothing going on. We are a family for girls who are away from home. When you join Delta Zeta you join a group of sisters that will last you a lifetime.”
Pate said the Delta Zeta’s like to go against the other Greek Life organizations.
“The Greeks like competition so it’s a fun event for us all,” she said.
Support from other students is helpful because it helps to cheer on the organizations, Pienda said.
“We struggle to get our point across on what our club is about and all the great things we are capable of doing to celebrate diversity and break society’s barriers,” she said.
As for the future, the Diversity Club is looking forward to helping the Multicultural Center with a fashion show in November among other projects.
“Hopefully we can help others see how important it is to get rid of society’s stereotypes,” Pienda said.
