Twelve students are members of The University of Texas at Tyler’s chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Mindy Sutton, director of UT Tyler Greek life, announced.
Dr. Fredericka Brown, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is the advisor for the organization.
“I think the addition of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is great for the UT Tyler Greek community,” said Sutton.
