Welcome Aboard from our Captain



My name is Evelyn Vaughan and I am honored to have the privilege to serve as Gamma Theta’s president this year! When entering college, I knew I wanted to join something that would make this big campus feel a bit smaller. I was also looking for a sisterhood full of women that reminded me of the Panhellenic women in my own family; women that are resilient, compassionate, and authentic. I can say confidently that I have found exactly that here in Delta Gamma and I would not be the woman I am today without the memories, lessons, and love that Gamma Theta has given me. Little did I know that the house I ran home to on Bid Day would forever change my life and give me opportunities, such as serving as President, for which I know I will be forever thankful for.   


Gamma Theta has been my home away from home for three years, and I could not imagine who I would be today without these women who are constantly supporting and encouraging me to be the best version of myself. Freshman Evelyn would be amazed to find out that she would be leading a chapter of strong women, but it is the result of the personal growth that my years in Delta Gamma have given me. This chapter has given me so much from countless memories to loving friendships that has made me want to relive it all over again. 


Gamma Theta continues to exceed my expectations and grow into such a strong chapter. These inspiring women are constantly living out our motto of Doing Good all over campus. From executive roles on the Panhellenic Council; Senators in Student Government; student athletes; and numerous leadership positions in Dance Marathon, Delta Gamma has a vibrant and strong presence on campus. This sisterhood is full of women who hold themselves to such a high standard, are academically driven and embrace diversity. Being part of such a strong community that continues to Do Good in the greater UF community truly makes me even more proud to call myself a Delta Gamma. 


Living in the 808 for the past two years has brought me countless nights of laughs so hard you would cry, movies in the Anchor Room, and plenty of sweet treat runs with my best friends. This beautiful place we get to call home will always hold a special place in my heart as do the women that fill it. I always know I have someone who will be there for me every step of the way, make me laugh until I cry, and push me to be the best version of myself. 


Thank you for being my home away from home, helping me achieve my goals, and giving me this opportunity to serve as your president. Together, we will accomplish everything and more this next year and just know I am always in your corner. I am so blessed to call myself a Delta Gamma and honored to serve as Gamma Theta’s President this year. Forever thankful that I found what truly anchors me here at Gamma Theta!

With all my love, Evelyn
