DELTA SOCIETY Delta Society was a secret society founded by the class of 1895 in the year 1892. Its official name was “Daughters of Zeus,” its motto was “We are the people,” and its color was black. The society’s character was political and social and its goal was “the advancement of its members and of its class in all branches of college life.” The society accepted twelve members of each odd class and only one class at a time was represented in the society. All new members had to sign a pledge to “further the interests of the Delta Society as far as possible” and wore black court plaster Deltas on their foreheads for 24 hours after initiation. The society held no regular meetings, but banquets and parties for members were frequently hosted.
