Letter from Recruitment Chair
Dear Prospective Sister,
Hi! My name is Zoë Blandon. This year, I am the director of recruitment and continuous open bidding (COB) for our chapter, Beta Delta. That means that Charlotte Jacobson (vp: membership) and I get to plan all the fun events for primary recruitment this fall!
First, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself, Delta Gamma, and my personal experience in choosing DG. I am a sophomore from a few miles outside of Denver. I am not quite sure what I want to major in yet, but I think it will be some sort of social science. I love to get outdoors and go hiking, skiing, and exploring with friends and my dog.
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 primary 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 it was where I belonged. Each woman was genuinely passionate about doing good in the community, as well as 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 interested in what I had to say and truly wanted to know how I was doing throughout recruitment and the struggles of being new on campus. I could sense that these women have the common goal of doing good in their lives; I immediately felt like I belonged. I felt so at home and welcomed by everyone I met, that by the time Bid Day came around I already felt like I had become friends with these women.
Over the past year, through the ups and downs of the Block Plan, I had 40+ women that I can always count on. They have given me advice, helped me plan my classes, made me laugh harder than I can remember, been there for me through hard times, and so much more. We have gone on so many 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! Whether we are studying, out having fun, or anything in between, 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 is the best decision I have made since coming to campus, and I hope you can experience our sorority, too. If you have any questions, feel free to text, call or email me! Thank you for reading this letter, and we can’t wait to meet you this fall! To the 2018 winter starts, keep in mind that there may be additional opportunities for you join Greek life later this year.
