Letter from Recruitment Chair

Welcome to the Gamma Beta chapter of Delta Gamma at the University of Tulsa! My name is Isabel Lohr and this year I have the honor of being Delta Gamma’s VP: Membership, also known as the Recruitment Chair. I am so excited that you are interested in Greek Life here at TU.

When I came to TU, I knew nobody and that was terrifying. I met so many of my closest friends through recruitment and we have remained friends despite now being in different sororities. I can confidently say that the best decision I made since coming to college was to go through recruitment. The transition into college can be overwhelming and brain numbing but it was made easier knowing I had a whole chapter of women who had my back.

Going through recruitment, I was a really nervous and didn’t know what to expect. When I walked into Delta Gamma for the first time, I felt right at home. The girls were authentic, kind, and made me laugh (which nervous me really needed). I could see the love between the sisters just by how they looked at each other. I could feel it when they talked to me, they wanted me to be a part of this sisterhood. I’ll never forget the last day of recruitment; I walked through those blue doors thinking I would feel conflicted, but when I took a breath in I knew this is where I was meant to be.

Two years later, I still see the love between my sisters every day, but it’s not the love I saw during recruitment. I see it each day when I get up in the morning with a huge messy bun and have my toothbrush in my mouth and look at the mirror to see my suitemate had written me a good luck note for my test. I see the love when I’m up all night studying and my sister leaves a coffee for me on my desk. I see the love every day when I just get to be around my sisters and know that this sisterhood is not just for 4 years, it’s for life.

I have been so lucky to find a group of women that pushes me and encourages me in all that I do. They are my biggest fans, my best friends, and my sisters. They encourage me to take every opportunity available to me. Through Delta Gamma, I have joined clubs and taken on responsibilities I, otherwise, never could have found. I have become passionate about our philanthropy, Service for Sight. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Delta Gamma and I’ll never have to.

I can honestly say that Delta Gamma has become my home here in Tulsa. It has brought me so much happiness and has been the greatest experience of my life. My sisters and I can’t wait to welcome you into our home this Fall and hope that throughout your recruitment experience you find your home.

I am beyond thrilled that you are excited in going Greek and hope you are excited to see what DG has to offer! If you have any questions or concerns about this year’s recruitment, do not hesitate to contact me at isabel.lohr@gmail.com. I look forward to meeting you this Fall!

ITB,

Isabel Lohr
