This month marks 10 years of Beta Psi! We honored our founders, Anna Boyd Ellington, Eva Webb Dodd and Mary Comfort Leonard, and the values they laid out for us. They founded Delta Gamma in lasting friendships that encourage and empower our members to be the best version of themselves, while striving to always ‘Do Good.’ Alabama and DG alum, Sydney Ryba, gave a captivating speech about the lessons learned during and after her experiences in Delta Gamma that she looks back on with “nothing but nostalgia and, more importantly, gratitude.” She described her position on the Chapter Management Team saying, “This chapter taught me so many things about myself that I didn’t know and so many skills that I would’ve previously never had. I learned how important it is to go all in for something when you want it. I couldn’t imagine looking back on my college life without those women or that experience.” The love and support that grows from Delta Gamma’s sisterhood was evident. She said it best when ending with “Sometimes it is easy to say that DG is a small part of your life, but I promise you’re wrong.”
Big Little and Initiation
They’re finally official!!! We are so grateful to have gotten our girls this spring semester and continue to grow Beta Psi. After Inspiration and Initiation, we were so happy to share our rituals and the bonds of sisterhood with these amazing women. Welcome to the sisterhood MC’20!
We love parents weekend! At The Bear Trap our sisters and their parents enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the rooftop. We were lucky enough to listen to The Band U.S again at one of our events! On Sunday, we got to take our parents bowling and later enjoy coffee and treats at Heritage House. Shoutout to our VP Programming, Ainsley Melrose, and her directors for throwing on such a fun weekend!
We were thrilled to have our annual formal, Anchor Ball, this year! The Band U.S provided great music that our sisters and dates danced to all night. Druid City Social was decorated with twinkling string lights and full of smiles and laughter.
