Letter From the President
It is an honor to welcome you to the official site of the Gamma Kappa chapter of Delta Gamma here at UCSB! I encourage you to explore the site to get a sneak peek of what our chapter of DG is all about. Gamma Kappa is full of women who are undoubtedly the most driven, accomplished, and kind-hearted people I have had the pleasure of spending my time at UCSB with.
Being a part of this chapter has proven to be so much more than I could have ever hoped for. I knew that I wanted to join a sorority to make life-long friends and make the transition away from home a little easier. But what I didn’t realize, is that I would be finding a new home altogether, one in which I have been able to thrive and truly understand myself and what it means to be a Delta Gamma.
I have learned that being a Delta Gamma means being the absolute best form of yourself. That is hands down one of the best parts of our chapter- that each women is unique and brings to the table a new view on life that opens every other member’s minds to the possibilities of what this world has to offer. Not a day goes by that I do not get to have an eye opening conversation with a fellow DG that inspires me to strive for utmost excellence. Each Gamma Kappa has their own interpretation of our motto, “Do Good”, in which they develop in their accomplishments whether it is through training to serve our country in Army ROTC or volunteering at the closest guide dog training facility.
In one way, our motto affects each of us in the same manner. We all have become passionate about our philanthropy, Service For Sight. Every year we put on three distinct events that get the entire community and student body involved in fighting on behalf of the visually impaired. We plan and execute a Desserts with DG event in the fall, AnchorSlam in the winter, and Pizza for Paws in the spring that each raise over $10,000 for Service For Sight annually. To be able to “Do Good” while surrounded by amazing women is truly an honor that we get to cherish each and every day.
Through Delta Gamma, I have met my absolute best friends and I know that every woman in this chapter will be there through the tough as well as the best times. I am confident that all members of Gamma Kappa are equally as proud to be able to call themselves a DG as I am, and I feel especially lucky to represent and lead each and every one of them. Thanks to these women and this chapter I continue through life with an ever present smile, eager to see what each day holds for us at UCSB!
For hope, for strength, for life and always ITB,
University of California, Santa Barbara
