Setting Sail with DGs

Epsilon Beta (Bucknell) DGs and me.

After my CDC traveling ended I took a trip to Europe with a friend from my chapter.  Little did I know, four Delta Gamma's from Bucknell University (where I visited in November) were also in Greece!  We ran into eachother at our hostel and spent the whole day on a tour of the islands.  Six of us Delta Gammas took a boat, bus, and donkey together to see some of Greece's most beautiful sights.  What a small DG world
All of us after making it to the top

Alpha Xi - West Virginia University

What a great visit with the women of Alpha Xi! I arrived at the beginning of Greek Week and the women were gearing up to participate in the week's events and win! My visit was short so I was not able to see many events, but I did get to see the Air Bands competition. I have never seen anything like this, but it was bascially a cheerleading competition. Each fraternity and sorority pair had a theme and the overall theme was "what you want to be when you grow up". Delta Gamma, SAE and AGR were doctors and other groups were things like cowboys, rockstars, spies, racecar drivers, etc. It was so neat to see the different routines and performances. Delta Gamma rocked it and placed third!

One of the chapter members took me on a campus tour in her car because it was raining. We made a detour and looked at some enormous houses. It was super fun to get to see Morgantown! Some members of joint CMT took me out to dinner which was delicious!

Eta Rho - UC Merced

I had a wonderful time with the women of Eta Rho - UC Merced! The weather was much nicer this time compared to when I visited in January. You could see the mountains behind the campus and the picture was gorgeous!

Eta Rho had Anchor Slam during my visit. It was so fun to watch different students play basketball. Many groups participated in the tournament and the event was a huge success! I am so proud of their progress with this event! Check out some pictures!

Zeta Zeta - Boston University

What a change of weather from Baton Rouge to Boston! It was great being in the middle of a big city and getting to experience the fast-paced lifestyle of the East Coast.

Zeta Zeta had Initiation while I was there. It was neat to be a part of a ceremony welcoming more members into our sisterhood. I was able to go out to dinner with the advisory team one night. How lucky the women are to have such wonderful, involved advisers! RCRS Jane (and her new little girl, Lily) and Director of Housing Ally were able to join, too. It was so nice seeing the Good coming from fantastic alumnae!

The chapter members took me to eat at Cheers and on part of the Freedom Trail. There is a lot of history in Boston and it was neat to get to see some of it! It was freezing outside, so we didn't last too long. I really loved getting to visit and know the women of Zeta Zeta.

Turn in your songs today!

Have a chapter song that you want to share?  Today is the day!  Record your song contest song and send it on in to the CDCs by midnight tonight!

Thanks for all of your hard work this semester, everyone!



Having not traveled to the south this entire semester, LSU was definitely a change of scenery and culture for me. The women were super welcoming and did an excellent job of making me feel right at home!

Gamma Zeta had a lot going on during my visit. Two chapter members took me to boot camp at 6am...What dedicated exercisers! I attended the Greek Gala, a banquet to recognize prestigious alumni from the LSU Greek community, with the membership adviser. It was inspiring to see how many people are dedicated to LSU and their organizations.

Saturday was the St. Patrick's Day parade in Baton Rouge. Previous CDCs Emily Burris Hester and Kaitlyn Guerin took me to the parade and food at the membership adviser's house. The parade was a neat experience! Sunday the chapter held a fundraiser, Delta Glam, where different companies came to Delta Gamma to sell their merchandise. The event was a success!

On Monday, the chapter held RPW one and I facilitated some conversation exercises for the newly initiated members. It was super fun and I think the women had a good time while hopefully learning a lot. For those who aren't from the south, the bottom picture is of the chapter "bouncing and clapping". I think SaraMargaret would be proud of their excelelnt form!

Monday was also the start of Greek Week. A Delta Gamma was in charge of Greek Week, more specifically the Habitat for Humanity builds. I was able to go to the build site and see the good happening for myself. How inspiring! Monday night Emily, Kaitlyn and I drove to New Orleans to see Vanessa! It was so nice to see more familiar faces! What a wonderful group of women and visit to Gamma Zeta!

Theta Beta-Case Western Reserve University

Theta Beta is an incredible group of women who truly value their membership in Delta Gamma. Their sisterhood was very evident during my visit, not to mention they are very involved on campus and have amazing scholarship! They even had a member who is currently studying abroad in Spain, come back on one of her breaks to surprise them! I loved watching the shock and excitement on everyone's face when they walked into the room and their sister who was supposed to be abroad was standing there:) During my visit, the campus had Greek Week! Delta Gamma placed in many of the events, and got 3rd place overall! They brought their competitive yet Panhellenic spirit to all the events. There were always many members cheering on their sisters from the sidelines with posters. They even cheered for the other teams and were constantly saying "great job" or "good luck" to the teams that walked by. The chapter was an outstanding example of what it means to have Panhellenic spirit!

Five More Days For Songs

Eta Iota- UN, Reno at Song Practice
This message was sent, today, to collegiate and alumnae presidents, vp: communications, vp: member educations, and directors of collumnae:

There are five days left to submit a song in the Inaugural Song Contest!  Remember, there are three categories and your collegiate and/or alumnae chapter can submit one in each.  Use your creativity and send in anything that you think would be a good song to share with other chapters. 

Tips on sending your submission:

  • Send as an mp3 or ACC file (not mp4).
  • Don’t send it through a University email address as these hosts sometimes do not allow you to send large files.  Gmail, yahoo, etc will work.
    • Or, you can upload your song to a “dropbox” account and email us the link.
  • Create a song that can appeal to chapters across North America.
  • Using a pop culture song?  Think about using either a “classic” or something that is becoming popular right now.
  • Use songs your chapter already has written and record them!
  • Press send on your email by midnight on Sunday the 10th.

Still have a question?  Email us at songcontest@deltagamma.org

Best of luck and, as always, feel free to email the CDCs with any questions.

My return to Pi-Unversity of Montana!

When I was at Pi in the fall, the campus was green and beautiful. This time, the campus was not as green, but the nearby mountains were covered with snow! The scenery was amazing, and with a short 15-30 minute drive, they can be in the mountains! The women were incredibly enjoyable to spend time with once again. Their bonds of sisterhood are amazing, as they are always looking to do thoughtful and kind things to support each other.
A group of seniors and I went to Lunafest one evening. It is an annual showing in Missoula of short films about women. It was eye opening and inspiring!
The chapter had Big/Little Revealing for their five New Members during my visit!
