DG Chapter of the Year - Delta Lambda, Mississippi State University!

I had the opportunity to visit Delta Gamma's Chapter of the Year: Delta Lambda, Mississippi State University! The chapter has 247 members and they are absolutely amazing young women! Members of the chapter are involved in various activities on campus, including: Roadrunners, Alumnae Delegates, Senate and Cabinet, Choir, Pom Squad, Cheerleading, Fashion Board, Campus Activities Board, and various Honor Societies (during my visit, multiple women of the chapter were initiated into Phi Kappa Phi). They recently participated in Chi Omega's Philanthropy event, Limlight, from which the chapter took home the title of 'Crowd Favorite' for their reinactment of Michael Jackson songs and dances!

During my visit, we had the chance to see DG Fenly Akers pass on her title as Miss MSU - she will be competing in the Miss Mississippi pageant later this year! We also went to the basketball team's exhibition game, met alumnae in town for their member class reunion (which included a narrated tour of their beautiful campus by two Delta Gammas, Martha Crowder and Mary Page Billingsley, who are both Roadrunners for the university), and watched as Delta Gamma's entrant in the Zeta Tau Alpha Big Man on Campus competition was 'crowned' the winner!

I also had the chance to travel to Oxford, Mississippi with three amazing and inspiring alumnae - Eleanor Slaughter, Maureen Hollmeyer and Carol Nunnally! CDC Vanessa was visiting the chapter :)
