LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
I am proud to serve as Tri Delta’s Collegiate Chapter President at Louisiana State University. It is my honor to lead nearly 80 officers and 300 members as they navigate their collegiate experience. Alongside my collegiate Executive Board, I work to empower Tri Delta women, cultivate an environment welcoming to all, and oversee the daily operations of our chapter. My role extends beyond the doors of our chapter room as I facilitate communication with the LSU Pan-Hellenic Council and our Fraternity Executive Board and staff members in Dallas to ensure our members have the most memorable and inspiring experience possible.
Over the past few years, Greek Life at LSU has undergone a significant number of changes in order to ensure the safety of the Greek community and promote a healthy environment to live and learn. I am extremely proud of our members for embracing the new standards to create a positive campus culture. Our women are taking big strides towards a brighter future for Greek men and women.
With challenges and hard work come great rewards. The Delta Omega Chapter at LSU has many accomplishments to celebrate as we begin the fall semester. We were one of the top fundraising chapters for our philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, for yet another year. Our chapter raised more than $146,000 last year, bringing us one step closer to achieving Tri Delta’s national goal to raise $60 million in 10 years for St. Jude. This goal is the largest commitment ever made to the hospital from a single partner.
Additionally, we have several LSU sisters representing our chapter in many different capacities. We currently have two Tri Deltas serving on our Fraternity’s National Pan-Hellenic Council. One volunteers for Tri Delta’s Leadership Development Committee, and the other serves as a member of Tri Delta’s Collegiate Advisory Panel. Our sisters also participate in LSU athletics, LSU cheer, and LSU Golden Girls. I am inspired by the selfless love and devotion that our members dedicate to our national fraternity and LSU organizations.
I am grateful to share my college experience with so many wonderful women. Our successes have come from the support of family, friends, and alumnae. Without that support, we would not be able to live, learn, and lead with purpose for a lifetime.
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.
