On Aug. 28, the University of North Georgia’s Delta Zeta sorority kicked off the 2021 fall semester by openly inviting all UNG women to participate in their very own selfie museum. The event was hosted at Lumpkin County Parks and Recreation from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

A selfie museum is an installation or art gallery of multiple rooms and backdrops that provide visitors photo opportunities to pose in front of. Many selfie museums are launched for the chance to post and share photos on online social media sites. These museums have multiple sets with different themes. Each set provides ring lights, tools to prop up your phone and other objects that make it easy to snap that perfect picture.

Delta Zeta member and senior marketing major at UNG, Caitlyn Richards, talked about why they held this event.

What was this event hosted for?

“The selfie museum was hosted as a recruitment tool to get the Delta Zeta name out there to the incoming freshman. Along with this, due to quarantine, our sisters haven’t been able to see each other. This event was a great way to get everyone together and kick off the semester.”

What is your favorite part about participating in events for the sorority?

“I love events because I love being able to raise money for Heart for Hearing and Speech, see my sisters, and see the vision of the event come to life. Events are a great way to raise a large amount of money for our philanthropy without breaking the bank of anyone at the school. Most of our events are open to anyone that wants to come which makes them very fun and a great way to meet new people as well.”

Why does the sorority host events?

“Sororities throw so many different kinds of events. We have philanthropy, sisterhood, socials, and parents weekend events. Each of these are used for different reasons such as raising money, building sisterhood, recruitment tools, and just having a good time.”

Will you host more public events in the near future?

“We have a bunch of event ideas in the works. We usually do our philanthropy event “Little Italy” this semester, where anyone that wants to come will pay $5 to participate in games, an Italian dinner, and photo opportunities for everyone. This event usually has a good turn out and I love serving food to everyone and getting to know new people.”

The sorority strives to have fun, meet new people, and just spread the name of Delta Zeta itself together. More public events are soon to be announced, you can find these announcements on the sorority’s Instagram page (@deltazeta_ung).
