Overall, people on all sides need to have many seats.

If one understands how ceremonial street name changes work, they'd understand that this does not change the address of ANY building on that block. If you try to send mail to Delta Sigma Theta Way, betcha it's gonna be marked invalid address LOL. So there is no reason for any Zeta or any business owner or ambassador working on that block to be mad.

All they did was hang a sign under a legitimate street sign.


From a Pan-Hellenic sisterhood and public relations standpoint, there were many, many other ways the sorority could have commemorated the Centennial. I think this was just one step too far. If someone was antsy to have a Delta street sign in DC, I would have chosen Sixth Street (on the campus of Howard) or a section of Pennsylvania Avenue (where the suffrage march happened) or, best of all, adopt one of the poorest residential blocks in DC, rename it, and then invest in it over the next decade. But to choose the block where your sistergreeks also have a national office... even if it's not the same intersection.... it's just not a choice I would have made.

Delta has always supposedly been about service over showmanship, so I'm disappointed that this moment went down the path of grandiosity.

To sum it up:

Nobody's address changed.
Some people feel slighted.
Delta could have done better.
The next Centenarians can learn from this.

The comments went down the familiar path.

Um. No. Am I the only person that disagrees with this? Our headquarters are on the same block as the commemorative street. Our decision had nothing to do with Zeta and as #GreekUnity as I am, our commitment is to Delta.

Just my opinion.
My focus is unparalleled
