Delta Zeta members sign letter deploring their sorority’s actions

New response by DZ national. The sorority has gone from a defensive “Please don’t let us be misunderstood” to a contrite apology:

Delta Zeta National apologizes to any of our women at DePauw who felt personally hurt by our actions. It was never our intention to disparage or hurt any of our members during this chapter reorganization process.

One reply on “Update: DePauw Bottoms says he needs to clean house; Delta Zeta responds; letter writer says DePauw conveniently forgetting it recommended reorganization”

I wonder when the DePauw will actually comment on the fact that their own staff member recommended the reorganization process to Delta Zeta Sorority. The sorority is being punished for acting on the recommendations of the university.
