Hello and welcome to the Delta Gamma chapter of Tri Delta! Thank you for taking the time to explore our website and find out what life as a Tri Delta is all about. As a part of the Vanderbilt community for over one hundred years, our chapter is proud to have maintained academic excellence and Greek Life’s top fundraising chapter, while having a great time doing it all! We look forward to another successful year, and can’t wait to continue to expand and improve.
Service and philanthropy are an important part of our sorority experience. Along with our annual dance show, Delta Underground, benefiting Nashville’s Monroe Carrel Jr. Children’s Hospital, our chapter also supports Tri Delta’s national philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our spring philanthropy, Frats at Bat, is dedicated to this cause. Each year we take a trip as a chapter to Memphis, TN to tour the St. Jude Hospital and interact with patients and their families. We recently expanded our fundraising initiatives for St. Jude by partnering with Vanderbilt Sigma Nu to host a late night grilled cheese sale, which turned out to be extremely successful! Vanderbilt Tri Delta has been consistently honored as one of the top fundraisers among Tri Delta chapters across the country, and we plan to continue to raise our fundraising total this year. Out of all of the Tri Delta chapters of every size in the nation, our chapter had the 11th highest grand total of money raised for St. Jude in one year. This past year, we were awarded Panhellenic Outstanding Philanthropy Project, chosen out of all of the fraternities and sororities on campus.
Beyond our involvement through service, Tri Delta maintains a strong presence on campus throughout the year. We participate in almost every fraternity philanthropy event, and have won quite a few of them! One of our proudest accomplishments was the $13,000 we raised for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during Sigma Chi Derby Days, making us the winning Sorority of the philanthropy event! With members on the Varsity dance, cheerleading, swimming, soccer, cross country, track and field, and lacrosse teams as well as student leaders in almost every major student organization, it’s hard to miss Tri Deltas on campus.
My time at Vanderbilt would not be complete without the invaluable guidance, inspiration, advice, and support I’ve gained from the incredible members of our chapter, not to mention all the late night dance parties and Bachelorette viewings at the house! I had no idea that being a member of Tri Delta could give me so many incredible relationships and present me with so many opportunities, but now I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. We hope you enjoy learning more about our chapter, and hope to see you soon!
Delta Love and Mine,
