January 2017

by Alana Doyle, Director of Public Relations


Long, elegant dresses, high heels, men in suits and more filled the Delta Gamma Beta Psi house on Friday, January 27th. The women of Delta Gamma celebrated our sisterhood with guests at our annual Anchorball. This year, the event was held at The Historic Drish House with a dance floor both inside the mansion and outdoors, with heaters of course! The Drish House has a legacy of being haunted as it was built in 1837 by Dr. John R. Drish. Regardless, our sisters had an incredible time dancing the night away at such a beautiful landmark in Tuscaloosa.


Alabama has to let others win sometimes, right? It’s just the polite thing to do! For the 2017 College Football National Championship, several of our sisters traveled hundreds and thousands of miles to see the Crimson Tide play against the Clemson Tigers in Tampa, Florida. Regardless of the outcome, our sisters had an incredible time both on and off the field and celebrated a very successful season for Alabama football! Roll Tide Roll!


Our newest CMT headed to Atlanta, Georgia this month in order to complete their regional training. Delta Gammas from across the SEC gathered to discuss their plans moving forward for each chapter. Meeting with sisters from other schools reminds us how many widespread connections we have as a fraternity. We are so excited for what our CMT has in store for the future of Beta Psi.
