Delta Delta Delta

Since the founding of Delta Delta Delta at Vanderbilt in 1911, the chapter has been extremely involved all over campus. Sisters are involved in and lead a variety of groups on campus, including Fashion for a Cause, Manna, Dance Marathon, and many more! Members also focus on promoting sisterhood through events at the house or elsewhere, such as kickboxing, movie nights, and feasting on delicious tea cakes! This past year Tri Delta hosted their annual Ranch party, a Black and White Formal, Tri The Rhyme date party, and the Stars and Crescent Ball. The sisters of Delta Delta Delta also greatly value philanthropy and giving back to the community. This year has been one for the books! The chapter continues to be one of the top fund-raising chapters for their national philanthropy, St. Jude Research Hospital, and this year Tri Delta nationally was able to reach their 5 million in 5 goal in just 3.5 years. The chapter was proud to contribute to this national goal and a lot was thanks to their yearly philanthropy event, Frats at Bat. The chapter also added a new event called St. Jude Week. This event educated others around Vanderbilt’s campus about St. Jude and they held two fundraisers with local stores and restaurants. Tri Delta also hosts their annual “Delta Underground” dance show to help raise money locally for the Monroe Carrell Children’s Hospital here at Vanderbilt. Between fundraising, hanging out with sisters, and being leaders on campus, Tri Delta has also found the time to participate wholeheartedly in campus events such as Derby Days, and was recognized as being the Most Improved Chapter at Vanderbilt. Whether together or apart, the sisters of Tri Delta truly live out their motto to “steadfastly love one another.”
