Letter from Recruitment Chair
My name is Amy Ladd and I am the Vice President of Membership for Delta Gamma at Colorado College. I work with Grace Pantalone, our Director of Continuous Open Bidding, to plan primary recruitment this coming fall!
I am from Casper, Wyoming and I love the outdoors. My hobbies include traveling, skiing, backpacking and laying in my hammock! At CC I am a sophomore pursing the pre-health track and majoring in Molecular Biology with a minor in Spanish.
I joined Delta Gamma my first year at CC and it has been the best decision I’ve made since coming to CC. On first day of primary recruitment, I walked in the house and I instantly knew I wanted to join. The girls I talked to were so genuine and so welcoming, they made the transition to college so much less intimidating. Since becoming a member, I have met so many amazing women that I never would have had the chance to otherwise and they have helped me in so many ways. From advice about classes and studying together in the library to skiing together and adventuring to Spain, the 40+ women of Beta Delta are there for each other whenever and wherever. In the midst of the wildly unpredictable schedule of the block plan, Delta Gamma offers a steady and positive support system that can always be counted on. We are a diverse group of women who support each other endlessly. The friends I met through our chapter have truly become sisters to me and will be for the rest of my life.
The members of Delta Gamma belong to a group of over 245,000 women worldwide yet each member adds their own unique aspect. The founders established Delta Gamma in 1873 with the purpose to “Do Good.” We are proud to serve the community though our philanthropic foundation, Service for Sight, which is devoted to protecting the gift of sight. Service for Sight also support the Anchor Centers, four schools founded by Delta Gamma for the visually impaired. We hold fundraisers to support both the foundation and local organizations such as the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind and the Colorado Springs chapter of Guide Dogs for the Blind. Delta Gamma is known for being the “most philanthropic” Greek organization and Beta Delta is proud to contribute by “doing good” every day.
Delta Gamma and the women of our chapter are proud to encourage educational and cultural interests while fostering high ideals of friendship. Joining DG is more than just a college experience, we offer a lifetime of assistance and opportunity no matter where you are in life. I am proud to call myself a Delta Gamma and I hope I can welcome you to our supportive and caring sisterhood. Throughout your time at CC and even throughout your life, I can promise that the women of Beta Delta will always be there for you.
If you are interested in joining or have any questions, feel free to contact me or Grace Pantalone! I can’t wait to meet you all during recruitment! There are always opportunities to join Greek life so please reach out! I would love to talk to you about it.
