Letter from the President
“Let us steadfastly love one another”
Going into recruitment, I was extremely excited to meet new people and hear about how the Greek Community was involved on campus, but having come to UK from out of state and going through sorority recruitment despite not having any Greek family, I was terrified that I wouldn’t find my “home” on UK’s campus. Three years later, choosing to participate in sorority recruitment is still the best decision I’ve made in college… joining Tri Delta is the second.
I remember Bid Day being a day of overwhelming joy, but I mostly remember being surrounded by young women who pledged to forever share the same values of friendship, self-sacrifice and truth as a member of this sisterhood. I ran onto the lawn and into the front doors of the Tri Delta house for the first time in Fall 2015 and that house quickly became my home. My sisters quickly became my best friends, biggest supporters and the women that I couldn’t imagine life without.
When I joined Tri Delta three years ago I would never dream I would be where I am today. Throughout these three years, Tri Delta has provided countless opportunities not only for myself but also for the women of this incredible sorority. Our chapter consistently proves to uphold Tri Delta's three values - truth, self-sacrifice, and friendship - through spending many hours with one another working toward a shared vision of accomplishing our chapter goals. Tri Delta's unbreakable commitment to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is such an inspiration and undeniably keeps our chapter motivated to fulfill each goal throughout every semester.
I was recently able to attend the Tri Delta Collegiate Leadership Conference where chapters across the nation met to discuss how to leave a lasting legacy within our chapters. We were encouraged to remember that because of the values we share, every Tri Delta woman strives to be bold, brave and kind and I can confidently say that our members at the University of Kentucky embody this mantra every day. Whether its being bold enough to express their opinions to make a positive change on our campus through our University's Student Government Association, being brave enough to challenge themselves daily with a rigorous course load to one day fulfill their goal of that dream job, or kind enough to encourage their sisters daily when life happens- here at Delta Rho we are an army of sisters that are bold, brave and kind.
I am extremely proud to serve as this year's President and cannot express my gratitude to serve this chapter and Tri Delta as a whole. I am so excited to share with you how our chapter continues to Lead Kind and Live Kind. I hope you enjoy exploring our website and seeing the impact our members have on one another, the Greek community, and the University of Kentucky!
Delta Love and All of Mine,
Jessica Marie Waters
