Letter from Recruitment Chair
My name is Maddie and I am honored to be VP Membership, or Recruitment Chair, of the Alpha Pi Chapter of Delta Gamma. I am from originally from Joliet, IL. I am majoring in Information Science & eSociety, and minoring in Marketing. Outside of DG, I am a member of a student-run advertising club called AdCats. As recruitment chair, I will be overseeing and organizing our chapter’s recruitment while serving as the representative and communicator on behalf of Delta Gamma to the University of Arizona Panhellenic Office.
Expanding our sisterhood is something that the women of our chapter look forward to each year. Delta Gamma focuses on a values-based recruitment with the goal of recruiting women who reflect the same values that we uphold as a chapter: character, scholarship, community service, and involvement.
Members going through the formal recruitment process out of high school must maintain a 3.0 GPA to join our chapter, while collegiate students going through formal recruitment are expected to maintain a 2.75 GPA. We value our alumnae and look forward to meeting Delta Gamma legacies, as well as opening our sisterhood to other potential new members who are new to the Greek community. As a chapter, one of our favorite parts of recruitment is helping guide each potential new member to find her “home away from home.”
Recruitment can be intimidating and nerve-racking, and it is okay to feel nervous! We all felt that way. What is important to remember is to stay true to yourself; this is your decision too. Look for the girls who you can connect with and let your unique personality shine through. Joining Delta Gamma has been one of the most positive experiences in my life thus far, and it excites me to play a role in helping other women find that same experience.
We’ve already been counting down the days until August, and cannot wait to meet this year’s potential new members!
