Letter from Recruitment Chair
To the girls looking for their home away from home,
Reflecting on my past three years at UCSB as a Delta Gamma, I can honestly say that joining a sorority was one of the most meaningful decisions I have ever made. For those of you thinking of registering for recruitment this fall, you’re already on the right track! Recruitment is a chance for you to step outside of your comfort zone and learn more about the endless opportunities that sorority life offers. Going through the process can seem overwhelming, intimidating and nerve-wracking, but you will shortly find that UCSB Panhellenic sororities are nothing like the stereotypes.
From the moment I walked through the doors of Delta Gamma on Unity Day, I knew I found my home away from home. During a time of transition and uncertainty, Delta Gamma gave me a sense of belonging when I needed it the most. This organization gave me my closest friends and the strongest support system throughout college. Not only do my sisters support me in the best and worst of times, they also inspire me every day to become the best version of myself. Our members are involved in the UCSB Honors Program, Division I sports, UCSB Dance Team, the Gaucho Tour Guide Association, study abroad programs, and much more, all while maintaining one of the top GPAs 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. For these reasons, I am so incredibly grateful to be surrounded by such a unique group of genuine, intelligent, and passionate women who have shaped who I am today.
As a member of a sorority, you will create cherished memories, share endless laughs, and become a better person alongside the women in your chapter. Their never-ending friendship will enhance your college experience and positively impact your life in ways you may not expect. In addition to finding a strong sisterhood, my sorority has provided me leadership opportunities that have allowed me to develop skills that I will bring into the workplace upon graduation. I truly never would have realized my full potential had I not accepted my bid to become a member of Delta Gamma.
Whether you choose to join Delta Gamma or another sorority, I am genuinely excited for you to embark on this journey as a sorority woman. Our chapter is so excited to meet you and learn about what makes you, you. All the while, we look forward to introducing you to Delta Gamma and showing you what makes our sisterhood so special. 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 pride I hold for being a Delta Gamma is immeasurable, and I am so excited to welcome more sisters into our community in the coming months!
All the best,
