Letter from our Recruitment Team
Welcome to the University of Memphis! I have the honor and privilege of serving as the 2021 Vice President of Recruitment for Alpha Gamma Delta. Right now I am currently disaffiliated from Alpha Gam to serve as a Frosh camp counselor.
To graduating seniors, I know that this year has changed the way a lot of your high school “lasts” have looked. Transforming and changing big events like prom and graduation must be very difficult and even weird, but I can't wait for you to realize that there are so many amazing things waiting for you here at Memphis- one of those being joining a sorority! Participating in Panhellenic Recruitment was one of the best decisions that I could have made my freshmen year and that has continued to be true throughout the pandemic.
With that, I can honestly say that my college experience would not be the same without my Alpha Gam sisters. They are my constant source of support, motivation, and reassurance, and I could not imagine where I would be without them. Although this past year has looked very different, our bonds, connections, and support for one another hasn’t changed. Even though our events have been virtual this year, my sisters have been so creative to keep us connected and together. From virtual 5K’s to painting with alums over Zoom, I have had more fun than I could have imagined. Because as long as I get to see my sisters’ cute faces and hear their laughs, it feels like we are all in the same room again. Together and apart, we are there to lift each other up and push each other to be the best versions of ourselves, and I could not have gotten through this virtual year without them.
Alpha Gamma Delta is a place of comfort, where we are loved and supported each and every day just for being ourselves. Alpha Gamma Delta aren't just letters that we get to wear. Alpha Gamma Delta is a chapter full of incredible women who will push you to work harder than you ever thought you could and reach goals you never even knew were possible. Sisters also hold you accountable to those goals and will cheer you on along the way. They make you laugh until you cry, are your shoulder to lean on when you’re down, and love you more than words can describe. I didn’t realize just how strong and unbreakable this love could be until I joined Alpha Gam.
Being in a sorority provides you with so many unique experiences not only socially, but also in your leadership and scholastic endeavors. Alpha Gamma Delta aspires to empower women and help them to further develop their best qualities. Our sisters are leaders, scholars, philanthropists, athletes, and so much more. Going Greek allows you to participate and invest in a community larger than yourself, and each chapter at the U of M has unique characteristics that contribute to the Greek community as a whole.
I would also like to encourage you to get involved right away by attending Frosh Camp! It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and an excellent way to learn about your university, as well as, meet other incoming students and campus leaders. You will also get the opportunity to learn more about the Greek experience by attending FroshCamp and New Student Orientation. My wish for you is that you find a home that gives you all the things that Alpha Gam has given me. Take full advantage of all that the University of Memphis has to offer and GO GREEK! Go Tigers Go!
I am so excited to meet you all during recruitment! I know that each of my sisters feel the exact same way and cannot wait to show you love, pour into you, serve you, and make lifelong memories with you as you step into this new chapter of life. I will be thinking of you as you begin this journey to find your sisterhood. This year’s Recruitment Dates are September 8-12, 2021!
