Letter from the President
Going into sorority recruitment freshman year, I was a shy and timid girl. I didn't speak up about my opinions, I shied away from leadership opportunities and I would do anything to blend in with the crowd. After deciding to attend the University of Kentucky, I knew I wanted to change this lifestyle I had become trapped in and push myself out of my comfort zone. I knew the first step of this was to go through sorority recruitment and join a chapter that would give me the opportunity to grow into the "brave, bold and kind" woman I was meant to be.
During the recruitment process, I was looking for a sorority that would get me out of the "Louisville bubble." I needed a sorority that challenged me and didn't let me get lost in a pledge class of 80 girls. I needed a sorority that pushed me to not just be a good individual, but a great individual; someone who would speak her mind, right wrongs, and have the courage to lead 300 strong women.
After pledging Delta Delta Delta, I quickly fell in love with every aspect of it. Freshman year, my goal was to say yes. Through many simple yes', I met lifelong friends, learned the value of sisterhood, and was finally able to see myself as a leader.
Over the past three years, Delta Delta Delta has created a home away from home for me. I have found my best friends and biggest supporters, girls that I couldn't imagine life without now. Tri Delta has given me, along with my sisters, countless opportunities that I will forever be indebted to them for.
At the University of Kentucky, our chapter consistently proves to uphold Tri Delta's three values - truth, self-sacrifice, and friendship - through spending hours upon hours with one another, and working toward a shared vision of our chapter goals. Tri Delta's unbreakable commitment to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is such an inspiration and undeniably keeps our chapter motivated to fulfill each goal we set our minds to.
Three years ago, I never would have dreamed I would be serving as Delta Rho's Collegiate Chapter President. I am extremely proud to serve in this role and cannot express my gratitude enough to this chapter and organization as a whole for showing a once shy, timid girl her bold side. I am so excited to share my gifts with the chapter this year and continue to "Lead Kind and Live Kind." I hope you enjoy exploring our website and find a chapter that means as much to you as the Delta Rho chapter means to me.
Delta Love and All of Mine,
Collegiate Chapter President
