We welcome you to come join us and view our very own suite. You will get a chance to speak with some of our own sisters on why we love having a suite on campus as a place to call our home away from home. It is always convenient for studying together, eating a quick snack ,and even a place we can get together and watch The Bachelor on Monday nights :)

Sisterhood Night is the first night of formal recruitment. This gives us a chance to get to know you as potential new members, but also a chance for you to learn about our sisterhood. We will present a short video about our chapter, have you meet some of our amazing sisters, and get a chance to show you our genuine sisterhood and values. This is your night to get to know our chapter and for us to get to know you. Feel free to ask our sisters any questions you may have!

Philanthropy is an important part of being a Delta Gamma. As a chapter, we participate in numerous philanthropy events each year. On this night you will find out all about our philanthropy, Service for Sight. Foundation is what holds us together, and Service for Sight reminds all of us the true reason for being Greek. You will learn we are also a supporter of Joining Forces, which helps soldiers that have lost eye sight or wounded their vision during battle. We have the opportunity to work closely with the Tennessee School for the Blind in Nashville, work with our golden anchor program at the local assisted living home in Cookeville, and help U.S. soldiers across the country. Take a moment to understand the Foundation on this night, while also meeting more sisters and getting to know us better.

The preference round will take place on the final night of recruitment. While we have gotten the chance to get to know you throughout the week of recruitment, the selection process, on your side and ours, has brought you to our room.
The sisters of Delta Gamma will express how much our sisterhood means to us. This is the night you will choose your future sisterhood, so take it all in and enjoy it. It is a meaningful night not only for you, but for our chapter as well. We enjoy this night to get to show our love for Delta Gamma on a serious level because it helps remind us of why we chose Delta Gamma, and that we are going to be gaining new sisters.
You have a tough decision to make, but we encourage you to feel comfortable and talk with our chapter members about how Delta Gamma has influenced and shaped our lives, and how much we want you to be our new sister. Don’t leave any questions to be unanswered, this night is for you to see us on a deeper level and understand why we made the decision we did while going through recruitment.

Finally, the waiting is over! Potential new members will receive an invitation to a sorority and at the same time all of you will open your Bid cards. Once you see your new sisterhood on your bid card, the Greek life staff will give you your first t-shirt of many! Then you will run to your screaming with joy new sisters, this is one of the most fulfilling moments of recruitment!
Delta Gamma hosts a lunch for our new members, welcoming them into our sisterhood and getting to know them even better! It is an exciting day celebrating the new member class, and our chapter looks forward to it every year!
