Founded at Ohio State University in 1897, Alpha Zeta is the "first and oldest collegiate society for agriculture." Alpha Zeta continues to serve as a professional society for those interested in the fields of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Charles W. Burkett and John F. Cunningham founded Alpha Zeta during a time where the study of agriculture was not looked upon highly. Seeing a need to promote the field of agriculture, Burkett and Cunningham founded Alpha Zeta so students of agriculture and natural resources could collaborate and gain respect for the field of agriculture.

The Alpha Zeta chapter at the University of Delaware has committed itself to providing the agricultural community around the University of Delaware with service and leadership. The chapter at the University of Delaware has worked with AgrAbility to assist disabled farmers with tasks on their farms. The Alpha Zeta chapter at the University of Delaware looks to the future and hopes to expand its breadth in the agricultural community to help foster new leaders in the field of agriculture and natural resources.
