LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Welcome to the 2018-2019 LSU school year at 4070 West Lakeshore Drive! We are so excited to start another year at Delta Delta Delta.
I serve as Tri Delta’s Collegiate Chapter President alongside nearly eighty chapter officers who lead us in sisterhood, philanthropy, social events, and more. My job is to make sure that everything inside of Tri Delta is running smoothly, and to make sure that all of our members are leading happy and healthy lifestyles. I am also here for any questions or concerns you may have as family members and friends – my email is always available and my door is always open!
As many of you know, our community suffered a tragedy this past fall. As a result, many rules and policies are changing in Greek Life. Tri Delta is welcoming these changes with open arms. We will do everything in our power to ensure each member has the safest and most beneficial experience possible while wearing the silver, gold, and blue.
A lot of exciting things have been happening this past year, too! Delta Omega, the LSU chapter, finished as one of the top fundraising chapters in the country for our philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Through our annual philanthropy events and support from our family and friends, we have been able to get one step closer to achieving our goal of raising $60 million in ten years for St. Jude – the hospital’s largest ever commitment from a single partner. In addition, we initiated our long-time chef and beloved friend, Edna Patterson, into Tri Delta. Ms. Edna has given 40 years of service to our house and to our members, and we are so honored that we could officially call her one of our sisters. Finally, Tri Delta finished the Spring 2018 semester with a combined 3.4 GPA, making us one of the top academically performing chapters down the row. Days at the Tri Delta house are busy and bustling, but it is such an outstanding environment in which to live, learn, and lead. We are so happy to be back!
We can’t thank you all enough for all that you do to support Delta Omega. Thank you for sharing with us the wonderful women that you have raised. Thank you for allowing us to develop as brave, bold, and kind women alongside one another – not just for four years, but as lifelong Tri Deltas.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
Delta Love and Mine,
Establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members
Develop a stronger and more womanly character
Broaden the moral and intellectual life
Assist its members in every possible way
DELTA OMEGA CHAPTER
The Delta Omega chapter of Delta Delta Delta was established at Louisiana State University on February 27, 1934. The Delta Omega chapter entitles its members to a perpetual bond of friendship and prides itself on the motto:
“Let us steadfastly love one another.”
Our chapter is acknowledged for its outstanding involvement with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital year after year. The girls of Delta Omega strive to be sincere, genuine, and to achieve excellence while always upholding the overall values of Delta Delta Delta.
The Delta Delta Delta house, which overlooks the picturesque LSU Lakes, was built in 1966. Designed by A. Hays Town, the famous American architect known for his work, which was heavily influenced by the Spanish, French, and Creole history of Louisiana, has a special character all its own.
Our house is home to fifty-four Tri Delta ladies. The living quarters are known as the senior wing, double wing, and dungeon. There is a communal bathroom with a washer and dryer in each hall. The courtyard, which was renovated in the summer of 2015, is a member favorite with its rocking chairs, swings, large fountain, and relaxing atmosphere. Other rooms in the house include the kitchen; the Delta café, which always comes stocked with snacks; living room; a cozy room, known as the pearl, that is used for studying or visiting with friends; computer room; president’s office; and chapter room.
Each room of our house aids in the excellence of each of our members by creating a quiet, comfortable sanctuary meant to feel like home, and the Tri Delta house staff works hard to keep our home looking beautiful, both inside and out.
During the school year, the Tri Delta house hosts many events including philanthropy fundraisers, recruitment parties, initiations, retreats, and various panhellenic events. The Tri Delta house is the perfect place to spend time with sisters during your college years and make memories that last a lifetime.
