Letter from Recruitment Chair
Welcome to the Gamma Beta chapter of Delta Gamma at The University of Tulsa! My name is Kate Leahy, and I have the opportunity to serve as this year’s vice president of membership, informally known as the Recruitment Chair. I can speak for the entire chapter when I say that we are excited you are interested in participating in formal recruitment and looking for more of what Delta Gamma is about here at TU.
The beginning of college is an experience that is hard to put into words- a whirlwind of fun, exciting, scary, and overwhelming elements, but the beginning of an amazing four years. One thing that Delta Gamma has taught me is that DG is not only for four years, but for life. This is a motto I stand behind 100 percent as these are my sisters forever, and I am so lucky to know they will always have my back. The memories I am making now are shaping the rest of my life, and I am thrilled to know I will always have a Delta Gamma by my side.
Participating in recruitment as a freshman has hands down been one of the best decisions I have made since I have come to college. It gave me a home away from my home in St. Louis, with a house full of sisters and many years of adventures and memories to come. However, when I ran to my home at Delta Gamma on bid night, I somewhat underestimated how much it would shape me as a person in college and beyond.
Delta Gamma opened a world of opportunities for me. From participating in many activities that benefit our philanthropy Service for Sight to engaging in different leadership opportunities and joining clubs outside of my comfort zone, I have been given the chance to grow and learn new things outside the college classroom. With all the excitement and best moments of college, it also comes with several challenges.
Through Delta Gamma, I am constantly amazed by the wonderful women I surround myself with who constantly push me to make the most of a situation, help me keep my head up when I have setbacks, and wish for my successes in any aspect of life I take on. I have found my study buddies, my shoulders to cry on, my fits of laughter after a long day, my number one fans, the girls who will eat pizza with me while studying, and my best friends through Delta Gamma. These women and these opportunities have confirmed that the decision to go Greek and join Delta Gamma is something I would not change for the world.
I hope you find the same opportunities for yourself as you explore the recruitment and Greek process. We are thrilled about your interest! If you have any questions or concerns about this year’s recruitment, please contact me at Katherine-Leahy@utulsa.edu. We look forward to meeting you!
