Letter From the President
Welcome to the official site of the Gamma Kappa chapter of Delta Gamma here at UC Santa Barbara! I encourage you to explore this site and all of our social media platforms to gain insight into our sisterhood, what DG means to us, and how it has changed all of our lives for the better.
To our members, Delta Gamma is where we go for support, growth, and a place to call home. Our 200 unique members each chose to join this chapter for different reasons and all of them have brought their individual interests, strengths, and passions to our chapter. Our members are not only involved in Delta Gamma, but also a variety of organizations both on and off campus. This is what makes our chapter full of well rounded, exceptional, and accomplished young women that are always exemplifying our motto to “Do Good” in all aspects of their lives. It amazes me how the impact one group of women can make on the community and one another.
One cause in particular that brings us together as Delta Gammas is our philanthropy, Service for Sight. Every year we hold multiple events to raise money for Service for sight, which includes Anchor Slam, Desserts with DG, and Delta Gamburger. These are amazing ways of bringing the Isla Vista community together while raising awareness and support for our philanthropy. This is just one way we live out our motto, “do good” in everything we do.
While all these events we host in IV are so much fun and bring our community together, ultimately, our efforts mean the most because the money we raise goes directly towards our philanthropy. As a chapter at UCSB, we are incredibly fortunate to have one of the five DG schools only an hour away from us. Located in Los Angeles, the Blind Children’s Center, which was founded by Delta Gammas across Southern California, serves approximately 80 kids and over 300 family members each year. We are so grateful that our chapter is able to visit the kids we support, multiple times a year, and that our members get a hands on experience with our philanthropy.
Being a part of this chapter has proven to be so much more than I could have ever hoped for. I am so beyond lucky to have Delta Gamma and all of these women in my life. Through DG, I have met my best friends that I know will be my bridesmaids at my wedding. I have grown as an individual and a leader. I have found more purpose in giving back to the community through Service For Sight. I have a home away from home and I have the support system of 200 women who push, inspire, and empower me along every step of the way. I am so beyond excited to be leading all the amazing women that make up this chapter and simply cannot wait to see what 2021 has in store for Delta Gamma.
ITB forever and always,
UCSB DG President
