I laughed at the idea that came out of my friend’s mouth freshman year.
A sorority? If anything I was anti-sorority. Anti is a strong word, but I didn’t think it was something that was “me.” Me and my preconceived ideas left me thinking a sorority would be all sorts of wrong. I wouldn’t form true friendships because everyone would be competing with each other. All of which I found out to be untrue, when I joined Delta Gamma.
I spent my freshman year watching all my friends join the same house. They all found an even larger group of friends and a support system. I was thankful that they still allowed me to tag along to all their events. I started to realize that while I wasn’t a part of this organization, I was missing out on something huge.
As sophomore year rolled around I had to decide if I wanted to go through recruitment. As a sophomore, this felt like an uncomfortable decision. I would be having to put myself out there and did I really want to do that? People already knew who I was and my life was good. The night before the deadline closed I signed up anyway. I didn’t want to be complacent with where I was. Who knew what I was getting into, but I am so glad I did.
One year later I am so happy with my decision.
I am incredibly involved in Delta Gamma. I love being able to impact people’s lives in an extremely positive way. Recently, I became a member of the Honor Board and the Director of House Management. I found myself getting increasingly involved in our philanthropy and helping others.
DG has become an outlet for me to do good for others and also receive that love back. I surround myself with a group of people that support and push me to be better. I never thought I would find that in a sorority.
As I look ahead, I realize that I will truly miss my time at DG. I want to make my next year the best one yet. I don’t want to lose any of the amazing opportunities that are at my fingertips. Delta G gave me some of my best friends and people who are also passionate about what I love.
