Letter from Recruitment Chair
To the women looking to find their home away from home,
Reflecting on my past three years at UCSB as a Delta Gamma, my best piece of advice is to readily step outside of your comfort zone. For those of you thinking of registering for recruitment this Fall, you’re already on the right track! Going through recruitment can seem overwhelming, intimidating and nerve-wracking, but you’ll shortly find that UCSB Panhellenic sororities are nothing like the stereotypes.
Recruitment gives you the opportunity to meet the most loyal, driven and genuine women who you will be proud to call your family. We aren’t looking for perfection, but rather want to get to know the real you and what it is that makes you who you are. All the while, we will introduce you to Delta Gamma and what makes our sisterhood so special. Our members are involved in the UCSB Honors program, study abroad, UCSB Dance Team, Division I sports, the Gaucho Tour Guide Association, and much more, all while maintaining one of the top GPA’s of all UCSB sororities. Most importantly, each member upholds our core values of friendship, strong educational and cultural interest, social responsibility and the best qualities of character.
You will share endless laughs, embarrassing moments and cherished memories with the women in your chapter. Their never-ending friendship will support you in the best and worst of times. I have sought out help from Delta Gammas whether it is a ride home from campus in a thunderstorm, advice on what classes to take, or deciding whether or not to accept an internship across the country. Whatever it is I need help with, I know Delta Gammas will have my best interest at heart. Moreover, my sorority has provided me leadership opportunities, allowing me to develop invaluable skills that I will bring into the workplace upon graduation. On a national level, Delta Gamma has raised millions of dollars to benefit the visually impaired, help fight degenerative disease, aid veterans, and reunite families.
I know I speak for my entire chapter when I say that joining a sorority was one of the most meaningful decisions I have made in my life thus far. I would have never realized my full potential had I not accepted my bid to become a member of Delta Gamma. I also remember being in your shoes, having no idea what to expect as recruitment drew closer and closer. But, from where I am now, I can assure you that the recruitment process will reward you with lifelong friendships, a community that will always have your back and opportunities to grow as a leader, volunteer and as a person. The fierce loyalty and pride I hold for the Delta Gammas in my chapter and across the nation is unwavering, and I am so excited to welcome more sisters into our community in the coming months!
