As a member of Tri Delta, sisters are encouraged to join other organizations at the University of Kentucky so they can gain valuable experiences during their college careers. Delta Rho sisters are involved in Student Government, The Global Scholars Program, UK Dance Team, UK Women's Basketball, UK Volleyball, Student Activities Board, Public Relations Student Society of America, Peer Tutoring at the Study, UK Club Soccer, Best Buddies, College Mentors, Medical Mission Club, Homecoming Court, Dance Blue, Center for Community Outreach, College Ambassadors, Freshman Orientation Peer Instructor's, Panhellenic Council and many more.
Delta Rho also takes pride in participating in community service and giving back to Fayette County. Whether the chapter is making blankets for the local homeless shelter during open meeting, donating Thanksgiving meals to less fortunate families during the holidays, participating in Dance Blue blood drives to help pediatric cancer patients, or running a 5K to end the fight against breast caner, Delta Rho is committed to being an active and impactful member of the community.
Service projects and endeavors to better the community is just one way the chapter works together as a team. Sisters also form intramural athletic teams throughout the school year and compete against other sororities and fraternities. Sports offered to members of the Greek community include soccer, basketball, flag football, inner tube basketball, softball, badminton, tennis, and many more. All members are encouraged to join a team in order to get to know their sisters better and create memories that last a lifetime.
I began my Tri Delta experience as an out of state student who knew no one at UK. Through joining Tri Delta, I have been encouraged to seek opportunities that better my connection with the Lexington and UK community. By joining campus organizations with my sisters like DanceBlue, Student Activities Board Homecoming Committee, and the Public Relations Student Society of America, I have learned a lot about myself, found a way to give back to the community, and established a home in the Lexington community. It is through Tri Delta that I have been encouraged to be more than just a college student. That is one of the things that I love about the Tri Delta Purpose; we are challenged to be the best version of ourselves while having an impact on the community. The memories that our chapter really holds on to can be found outside of the classroom and in various campus organizations. These memories have made my Tri Delta experience priceless, and as a senior this year, I hope to inspire incoming new members to find more than they imagined out of their collegiate Tri Delta experience.
