Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.




Welcome to the Tau Omega Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a sisterhood of college-educated women committed to public service. Although Delta Sigma Theta is a historically black sorority, membership is open to all who are committed to the goals of the organization. Our purpose is to provide assistance and support through established programs in local communities throughout the world.

The major programs of the sorority are based upon the organization’s five point thrust: 

  • Economic Development
  • Educational Development
  • International Awareness and Involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health
  • Political Awareness and Involvement
  •  Delta Sigma Theta is governed by the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) along with 8 other historically black fraternities and sororities. We do not follow the same rush process as sororities under the National Pan-Hellenic Council.

    Delta is interested in women who are willing to be committed to a lifetime of public service to achieve the goals of the sorority. Membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is truly a lifetime commitment.

    Tau Omega Chapter History

    The Tau Omega Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on April 23, 2005 by twelve determined young women who were dedicated to the principles of the sorority. This chapter is a joint chapter comprised of women from the campuses of Roanoke College, Washington and Lee University, and Hollins University. The chartering of this chapter brought the first historically black sorority to each of the three campuses. Realizing the need for a strong foundation, the highly dedicated women of this chapter focused on internal development during the chapter’s first year in existence. Since 2005, Tau Omega Chapter members have been academically inclined and highly motivated women dedicated to serving their campus, the Southwest Virginia community and the nation at large. The chapter has been involved in a host of programs, projects, lectures, and events concerning local and national activities, issues, and concerns.
