Letter from Recruitment Chair
Hello and welcome to our website! My name is Rachel Clanton and I am the Gamma Beta chapter of Delta Gamma’s vice president: membership. This position entails that I have the honor of preparing our chapter for recruitment and welcoming potential new members into our home this Fall. Joining Greek Life and Delta Gamma is one of the best decisions that I made when I started my college journey three years ago, and I hope that if you are reading this then you are considering going through Formal Recruitment at the University of Tulsa also!
It’s so crazy to say that I was in your shoes almost three years ago; it feels like I just went through Recruitment and ran home to Delta Gamma for the first time! Before I came to The University of Tulsa, I wasn’t even considering joining Greek Life. I wanted to focus on my studies, and I didn’t think that there was much benefit to it, but I was so wrong! I decided last minute to go through Formal Recruitment and not only was it an incredible experience that allowed for me to meet so many new people, but it also helped me find my home away from home. From the first time that I stepped into DG, I felt like I could be completely myself and I loved being surrounded by the women in the chapter.
Almost three years later and I still have that same feeling! Many things throughout the last three years of my life have changed but Delta Gamma is something that has remained constant through it all. Not only have I found some of my best friends in this chapter, but Delta Gamma has also helped me academically and professionally. I now have a job at Saint Francis Hospital thanks to connections that I have made through DG and my sisters constantly motivate and inspire me to be the best version of myself both in and out of the classroom.
My experience in Delta Gamma has been in no way perfect and I have had my fair share of ups and downs, but in the end, I know that the women of Delta Gamma will always be there for me. I wouldn’t trade my Greek Life experience for anything. I have found lifelong friends who have helped me grow into the woman that I am today. I am so proud to say that I am a Delta Gamma and to share such a special sisterhood with so many incredible women. I genuinely hope that you find your home away from home and a group of women who inspire you as much as my sisters inspire me.
I am thrilled that you are considering Greek life at TU, and I hope that you are excited to learn all that DG has to offer. If you have any questions or concerns about recruitment this fall, do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you this fall,
