Dear Potential New Member,
My name is Jackie Levine, and I could not be more excited to serve as the Vice President of Membership for Delta Gamma. Coming into college, I could have never envisioned the impact that joining Delta Gamma would have on my college experience and on the woman that I have grown into today. The love and support my sisters in Delta Gamma give me has pushed me out of my comfort zone to become the best possible version of myself! That is truly the beauty of joining a sisterhood… you accomplish goals you never thought possible with incredible women by your side each step of the way. My sisters inspire me to become the confident woman that I am today, ready to take on all of the responsibilities that this position entails. Our chapter is full of diverse women, each of them serving as a role model in our community in different ways and I am always so proud to be a Delta Gamma.
With recruitment fast approaching, I get more and more excited each day to share with you all what Delta Gamma means to me and my sisters. I know that this process will bring you to your forever home away home just the way it has for me. It is my hope that each of you falls in love with the recruitment process as much as I did, and that you feel inspired by the women you meet while making lifelong friends along the way. I am wishing you the best of luck on your journey! We are overjoyed to get to know you, and we hope that you feel welcomed by Delta Gamma’s sisterhood the same way we do.
My biggest piece of advice is to not overthink this process and simply follow your heart. You are looking for a place that feels like home and where you will find your forever friends. Above all, be yourself, and make the most of this special week! Delta Gamma was the perfect place to drop my anchor, and I hope you find what anchors you!
Why Delta Gamma?
Representing a wide range of backgrounds and personalities, every member of Delta Gamma is unique. Yet we all share a single bond of sisterhood forged through friendship and a shared vision of support and community. Our sisters challenge us to grow and transform into the best version of ourselves, while also reminding us to embrace the person that initially brought us home to Delta Gamma.
Joining Delta Gamma
Being a Delta Gamma is more than joining a chapter of our Fraternity. It is the first step in developing a life-long sisterhood and bonds with women who want to make the world a better place. During recruitment, we seek women who will bring the qualities that our members themselves hold near and dear, such as:
• A lifelong commitment to Delta Gamma
• The desire to partake in service to help others
• Achieving full academic potential
• Participation and/or eagerness to undertake leadership positions
• Join activities, athletics, and share talents within DG and UF community
• Strong moral character
Who is a Delta Gamma Legacy?
The term "legacy" is used to describe a potential new member who is a sister, daughter, granddaughter, or great-granddaughter of a member of Delta Gamma. The Fraternity also recognizes a stepsister, stepdaughter, step-granddaughter, or step-great-granddaughter as a legacy. While we understand that sisters, mothers, grandmothers and close relatives will continue to share their cherished Delta Gamma memories with those preparing for sorority recruitment, the opportunity to become a member is the same for all potential new members based on individual qualifications. Once a bid is offered, a new member’s DG relative can embrace their legacy but until they become a Delta Gamma by the chapter’s choice, they are equal to all other potential new members.
If you are a member of Delta Gamma wishing to submit a recommendation for a legacy or other potential new member, access the online recommendation form from your Delta Gamma Member Profile. You will be prompted to log in or create a log in if you do not currently have one set up. If you need your member number or any assistance logging in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
