Welcome to Delta Gamma at the University of Rochester! As president of the Zeta Delta chapter, it is my pleasure to introduce you to our sisterhood. As members of Delta Gamma, we strive to “Do Good” all that we do: individually, within our chapter, within our Panhellenic and Greek community, within our campus, within the city of Rochester, and beyond.
Our sisters belong to a number of academic honor societies and councils, participate in dozens of clubs, sports teams, performance groups, and other extracurricular activities, and hold numerous leadership positions on campus. Each day I am astounded by something new that a sister of mine has accomplished, and these strong empowering women never cease to amaze me with their talents, hard work, and selflessness. While these individual involvements are so important to us, we are also so proud of what we accomplish as a chapter. We highly value our philanthropic endeavors, which include large events that we hold several times each semester, as well as community service opportunities that we have every week. The three parts of Delta Gamma’s philanthropy are Service for Sight, the Golden Anchor Program, and Joining Forces. The Zeta Delta chapter works to fulfill these three components in a variety of ways, including holding Anchor Games, Service for Sight Week, Joining Forces gift wrapping with Full Circle Home, volunteering at the Rochester Episcopal Senior Life Communities, and working with the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. It’s so wonderful to be part of an organization that helps to enhance all other areas of our collegiate experiences, while providing many opportunities for volunteering, leadership, and other involvement on its own.
Lately, I have come to realize how lucky I’ve been to have found Delta Gamma. I believe that as a Delta Gamma, confident, strong, and passionate individuals surround you every day. Individuals who build you up, inspire you and push you to be the best you can be. As a Delta Gamma you learn the importance of philanthropy and helping others. You learn self-discipline, integrity, and selflessness. The amazing women who make up this sisterhood have impacted me in so many ways, and I know that myself personally and my time at the University of Rochester would not have been the same without them. We inspire, motivate, challenge, and encourage each other every day, and I know that I will leave this chapter as a better person because of it. I am so sincere when I say that these women will be the ones with whom I’ll share my important milestones, and I know that the bonds that we have created will last for more than four years… They’ll last for life.
We hope that this website will allow you to explore who we are, what we do, why Delta Gamma has become our home on campus, and how we “Do Good” and strive to be “Ever Better.” Please feel free to reach out to us at any time!
For Hope. For Strength. For Life.
President of Delta Gamma
