Gamma Tau-TCU

After visiting UNT, I headed to my last Texas school-TCU! They are a wonderful group of women with some incredibly dedicated leaders in their chapter. I met several fellow California girls there too! The day after I arrived, Gamma Tau held a scholarship brunch for women who received a 3.0 or higher GPA. The brunch was delicious, and as a to-go goodie, members received fresh cookies from a nearby bakery! Women with a 3.5 GPA and above were announced and awarded a special certificate. Way to go all you scholars!Gamma Tau has started a fun and creative tradition in the stairways of the DG-dormitory style house. Every member gets to paint their own anchor and sign their name to leave their legacy in the house! I was so excited to hear that in a few weeks, they are planning to bring a meal to eight Delta Gammas who live in a nearby assisted living home. The chapter is not only Doing Good on their campus, but in the community as well!

Gamma Nu-University of North Texas

Gamma Nu was my fifth DG chapter I visited in Texas! They definitely showed me around the city of Denton and I was able to participate in some great events on campus throughout the week! Every spring, they hold a "Panhellenic Pride" day, to honor the New Members from every chapter. Every Panhellenic group gets to present their New Members on stage, who then do a little song performance for the audience! Gamma Nu has 9 amazing New Members who had some great outfits and gave a flawless performance!
Later in the week, the new football coach invited the leadership teams from every fraternity and sorority to attend a special event. The campus is working to complete a muli-million dollar new football stadium, so these chapter leaders were able to tour the stadium, eat some delicious food and hear a movitational speech by the new head coach! It was inspiring to see the faith that he had in these leaders to bring school spirit back to their chapters. He knew that if the fraternities and sororities would set the example for the rest of the campus, that the new stadium would be overflowing in the student section come game time in the fall! The Delta Gamma's already pointed out the section of the new stadium they want their chapter to sit in! At the end of my visit, Gamma Nu's ATC Susan Odom was able to take me to Dallas Founders Day. Fraternity Council member Laurie Knight was present, as well as former Council member Pam Jamieson, and former NPC Chairman Martha Brown. The women from SMU were there, and I visited their chapter in the fall! It was fun to reconnect with them as well as meet many more amazing Delta Gammas!

Beta Omega - Washington State University

Better known as Wazzu, Washington State got a foot of snow during my visit! This is the most snow some of the chapter members have seen while at school. I would have to agree with Mary and Lorie, my picture taking has been lacking recently. I will try to be better :).

I absolutely loved the women of Beta Omega. I got to meet CDC Paige's step-sister, Lauren. She brought me some sweets which just made my visit that much better! The women took me to dollar scoops at Baskin Robbins and to see the movie "Just Go With It". We also went to dinner at a Mexican resaurant and one of the members told the waiter it was my birthday (which is in August by the way). However, it was so fun getting to eat fried ice cream and celebrate with the Beta Omegas!

The officers have been working really hard the past few years to improve their chapter and they have done a fantastic job! One big thing Beta Omega and the WSU Greek community are focusing on is more collaborative relations with the other Greek groups. With this in mind, Delta Gamma participated in Kappa Delta's wing eating contest. Although she did not win, Melissa did an excellent job!
