Letter from Recruitment Chair
Dear Prospective Delta Gamma Sister,
Hi! My name is Zoë Blandon. This year, I am the director of Continuous Open Bidding (COB) for our chapter. That means that Charlotte Jacobson (vp: Membership) and I get to plan all the fun events this spring where we get to know you guys!
I want to tell you a little bit about myself, DG, and my personal experience in picking Delta Gamma. First, I am a first year from a few miles outside of Denver. I have no idea what I want to major in yet, but I think it will be some sort of social science. I love getting outdoors and going hiking, skiing, climbing, and just exploring with friends. But, I also love to just stay indoors sometimes and watch Netflix!
Delta Gamma’s motto is “Do Good”. Overall, Delta Gamma is committed to serving the community, promoting education, as well as fostering sisterhood. For me, doing good every day is a huge part of my life. When I went through formal recruitment, I knew I wanted to join a sorority, but didn’t know which one. However, when I walked into the Delta Gamma lodge and saw so many warm and friendly faces, I had a feeling that it was where I belonged. Everyone there was so passionate about doing good in the community, and doing good for each other. Not only that, but each day of recruitment I had exciting, interesting conversations with the women of Delta Gamma, and always looked forward to going back. Everyone I met was so interested in what I had to say and genuinely wanted to know how I was doing throughout recruitment and the struggles of being new on campus. I immediately felt like I belonged here, and that these women have the common goal of doing good in their lives. I felt so at home and welcomed by everyone I met, that by the time it was Bid Day I already felt like I had been friends with these women forever. Over the past semester, through the ups and downs of the Block Plan, I have had 40+ women that I can always count on. They have given me advice, car rides, helped me plan my classes, been there for me through hard times, and so much more. We have gotten to go on fun adventures too, such as cliff diving, driving to the mountains for a day or two, and spending block breaks together. Not only that but we love to eat good food and watch lots of movies together! No matter what we do, I always have a great time with my sisters. They encourage me to be the best person I can be, and I have gotten so much out of Delta Gamma already. Even though I have been a part of Delta Gamma for a short time compared to others, I know that I have made friends for life.
I hope that I get the chance to welcome you into this amazing and loving community. Delta Gamma and the women of Beta Delta will be there for you throughout your time at Colorado College and throughout your entire life. DG has been the best experience for me since coming to campus, and I hope you can have this, too. If you have any questions, feel free to text me or email me! Thank you for reading this letter, we can’t wait to meet you!
