Rancic is a well-renowned E! News host, entertainment journalist, and fashion and beauty expert. Rancic will speak about the values and ethics she follows in her own life that have helped her become the woman she is today. Rancic teaches men and women to focus on the positive in life. She will be speaking about her struggle with breast cancer and how one can take control of his or her own health and future.

In 1992, Lectureships in Values and Ethics, a Delta Gamma program sponsored by the Delta Gamma Foundation, was established by Paul Martin to honor his wife, Dorothy "Dotty" Garrett Martin, Eta-Akron, in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. Though Dorothy is deceased, the lectureships immortalized her selfless spirit and love for Delta Gamma. Delta Gamma Foundation has great pride in this unique program, which is a prime example of its mission: "The Delta Gamma Foundation provides resources for educational growth and philanthropic service for all members."

Delta Gamma Lectureship in Values and Ethics was established at LSU in 2008. Gamma Zeta's Lectureship is a program only 18 (out of 147) Delta Gamma chapters across the Fraternity have the privilege to host.

At past Lectureships, Gamma Zeta hosted Aron Ralston, best-selling author and inspiration for the five-time Academy Award nominated film "127 Hours," and Steve Ford, actor and son of President Gerald Ford. Rancic will add her own touch of personality, poise and success to this already impressive list of speakers.

The event will be free, with seating on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, please contact the Gamma Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma's Director of Public Relations Maddie Duhon at gammazetalsu@gmail.com or 337-349-5403.

The Pete Maravich Assembly Center is located on N. Stadium Road in Baton Rouge, next to Tiger Stadium and the Bernie Moore Track Stadium.
