A Letter From Our President
Welcome to the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Delta Delta Delta at Valparaiso University!
The Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Delta Delta Delta represents one part of the international collegiate women’s fraternity that was founded in 1888. Delta Delta Delta was founded upon the ideals of sisterhood, loyalty, individual character and philanthropy. Although each woman of the Gamma Upsilon chapter is individual and unique, we all strive to uphold the ideals in which the chapter was founded upon, Sarah Ida Shaw’s common goal- “Let us found a society that shall be kind alike to all and think more of a girl’s inner self and character than of her personal appearance.”
The women of the Gamma Upsilon chapter consistently strive toward fulfilling the common goal by serving the local community, as well as Tri Delta’s national philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our passion and loyalty to St. Jude shows through our daily actions and is one of the most rewarding experiences of being a member of Delta Delta Delta.
We aspire to broaden the moral and intellectual life of each and every one of our members, as well as help them strive to be the best individual they can be in every aspect of their personal life.
Joining Tri Delta has truly been one of the most rewarding decisions I have made thus far. Tri Delta has helped me realize my desire to serve others. It has also opened up opportunities to meet amazing people, assist others, and grow personally from it all. Originally I came to college having little interest in being part of the Greek Life Community, but after seeing how the community as a whole worked as one, I knew it was something I needed to be a part of.
I am extremely honored to be the Chapter President of Delta Delta Delta. I have been blessed with the ability to work with dedicated and beautiful women that share the same values and ideals as me. Although each of us bring about a unique history that has shaped our individual personalities, we all share the common passion of Tri Delta to serve a greater good and work closely with St. Jude. I could not be more proud to call each member my sister.
