Letter from Recruitment Chair
My name is Lauren Stierman and I am the Vice President of Membership for the Beta Delta chapter of Delta Gamma at Colorado College. I am working with Jane Nicholson, our Director of Continuous Open Bidding, to plan primary recruitment in the fall of 2019!
I am a junior from Omaha, Nebraska, and I am studying math and computer science. I like to run, cook, and travel, and I love photography! I love being a Delta Gamma because of thestrong and genuine sisterhood I find in Beta Delta, as well as the automatic connections with countless sisters nationwide.
I joined Delta Gamma during my first year at CC. I was interested in seeing what Greek life at CC had to offer, but I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I didn’t really know anyone here and was hoping to find a community where I could feel at home when I was 600 miles away from home – and that is exactly what I found in Delta Gamma. During primary recruitment, I had my first glimpse of the Beta Delta sisterhood. The women were so kind and welcoming, and each one was unique and passionate in a different way. After three days of primary recruitment, I knew that I wanted to be a part of this sisterhood. Since I have become a member, I have learned time and time again what Delta Gamma is. It is a system of constantsupport and love that I know I can always turn to. It is a place where I have formed genuine, lasting friendships, with girls who support and accept me while pushing me to be the best that I can be. It is empowerment, encouragement, self-growth, and service to others. It is being a part of something greater than yourself and striving to be the best version of yourself every day.
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 supports five schools for the visually impaired founded by Delta Gamma, in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, St. Louis, and Kansas City. We hold fundraisers to support both the Delta Gamma 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 striving to “do 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; it is a lifetime of assistance and opportunity no matter where you are. I am so happy to be a Delta Gamma, and my experience in Beta Delta has been extremely rewarding.
Throughout your time at CC and beyond, Beta Delta is a really special group to be a part of. If you are interested in joining or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me! I would love to talk to you about it.
