Fall Festivities 2020

By Leigha Whitridge, Director of Public Relations


We are so thankful for our sisterhood, especially in times like these. The support and friendship from our sisters this semester is something to truly be grateful for and remember in this season. With a Friendsgiving dinner, we celebrated this amazing sisterhood and ate lots of turkey!

Pumpkin Patch

Nothing says fall like the pumpkin patch! We got to spend the day outside picking out pumpkins and laughing with our sisters, as well as petting the adorable farm animals. 


There’s nothing like game days in Tuscaloosa. Even though they looked a little different this year, we still got to cheer on our team in Bryant Denny with our sisters. With the season coming to a close, we look back on all the wins and get excited for the remaining games. Roll Tide Roll!

In the Holiday Spirit

Ginger Bread House Sisterhood

Let the holiday festivities begin! To kick-start the most wonderful time of the year, we paired up and spent the evening decorating gingerbread houses and cookie Christmas trees with icing and colorful candy in our dining room. Keeping them together was a lot easier said than done, but don’t worry, only a few gingerbread houses ended up on the floor!

Ornament Making

In the season of giving, our sisters sent off these sparkling handmade ornaments to the residents of the Pine Valley and Crimson Village retirement homes. Never underestimate the value of a simple, yet sentimental, gift, especially in times like these. Hopefully these ornaments will serve as little reminders of the joy, warm wishes and snow we are wishing everyone this year.

House Decorating

How many sorority sisters does it take to decorate a house? We came together to get our house looking festive and ready for the holidays. Like years before, our Christmas tree, garlands and outside wreaths all incorporate our light blue with silver accents. Three stockings now hang above the fireplace in honor of our founders Anna, Eva and Mary. Our anchor shines bright on the row wrapped up in glowing string lights.

Work Week

Navigating how to do recruitment during a global pandemic was a learning curve that we all had to get behind, but we would be nowhere without our amazing Membership team! These girls led us through work week flawlessly and showed us all of the ins and outs of Zoom recruitment. Although we wish we got to spend the week with our sisters in person, it was such a delight getting to see everyone through the computer screen since March!


Although things looked different this year, we had so much fun completing virtual recruitment for the first time ever! Getting to chat with all of the PNMs over Zoom was definitely something we never imagined, but we had so much fun doing it! In the end, we walked into Bid Day with our masks on and smiles underneath because WE GOT OUR GIRLS!

Bid Day

Even during a pandemic, BID DAY IS THE BEST DAY! We absolutely swept the row this year and we were so excited to greet our new members to our house in a socially distant manor! We wish our active members could have all been there to bring our girls home, but we all still had a great time meeting each new member through Zoom later in the day.

Bid Day Bowling

We had such a fun time at Bowlero with our new members to celebrate them joining our home! Dressed in Bid Day jerseys and our signature bronze, pink and blue, our girls bowled the night away. We LOVE our new members already!

First Day of Classes

New school year means new clothes, right? Well in our case this semester its new masks! Having to wear masks during classes isn’t so bad when you have your sisters by your side. We jumped into the new school year ready to learn on Zoom and in the classroom, waiting patiently to be in the top-4 for grades once again!

Anchor Ball

We had so much fun dancing the night away at Anchor Ball this year! Our girls got to spend the night with their sisters and their dates overlooking the Black Warrior River and singing along with Park Band. Cypress Inn was such a delight and we loved every minute of it!

Galentine’s Day

All you need is love and your sisters ♡ Happy Galentine’s Day from Beta Psi! We spent the day in our lovely home surrounded by our sisters, a chocolate fountain, cookies, and a movie. We are so thankful to share love in the bonds, always!

Milk and Cookies

With sugar-filled smiles we are so proud to announce that we raised $14,610 at our annual philanthropy event, Milk and Cookies, to benefit Service for Sight and the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind! We are so appreciative to everyone who donated and came by to eat delicious cookies with us and create puffy-paint coloring pages for visually impaired children!

Sisterhood Date Party

The mountains are calling and we must go ✰ We had such a fun time at our sisterhood date party wearing all of our favorite ski lodge gear! Twelve25 was a new location that we had so much fun at and even got to sing some karaoke 🎤 Who’s ready to sing next?!

Parents’ Weekend

The most wonderful weekend of the semester! We had the BEST time with our parents in town for a few days. We began the weekend with a Friday night social event at Hotel Capstone for parents and daughters to mingle. Saturday night our sisters and their parents enjoyed dinner at Indian Hills Country Club. To top off the amazing weekend, we welcomed all of the families into the Delta Gamma Mansion for brunch and house tours. We are so thankful that our sisters are surrounded by such loving, supportive, extraordinary people! Thank you for all you do, moms, dads & more!

CMT & JCMT 2019-2020

With a new year and decade, we are so excited to hit the ground running with our official Chapter Management Team and Junior Chapter Management Team! These girls have already done so much to better our chapter and we cannot wait to see what else is in store. Their intentionality is like no other and we are so proud to have women like them lead us!

DG Drops a Pin, Winter Break Style

As the year comes to an end & the Spring semester is about to begin, it’s so fun to see where our sisters have gone this winter break! From the ski slopes of Colorado to the mountains of Costa Rica and all the way to the cliffs of Hawaii, our girls are enjoying every minute of their time away! We can’t wait to get back to Tuscaloosa and hear all about our sisters’ adventures.

This Thanksgiving we’re thankful for friends that became family! We have had such a great semester with so many memories to cherish. We’re thankful for our sisterhood every day, but especially today! Bama Delta Gamma wants to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!


There is no place like home for the holidays! Our collegians and alumnae had a great time together decorating our beautiful house for Christmas. We chose to decorate using our classic pink and blue and hanging three stockings for our three founders, Anna, Eva, and Mary. Such a wonderful start to the holiday season!


The weather outside might be frightful, but spending time with our sisters is so delightful! As the semester comes to an end, our members chose to celebrate by rocking around the Christmas tree with their dates at the Tuscaloosa River Market! We loved having holiday decorations all around the venue to get right into the spirit of the season.

Anchor Splash

Beta Psi stays doing good the best we know-how. That is, fundraising for our philanthropy! For Anchor Splash Beta Psi partnered with The University of Alabama fraternities to benefit Service for Sight. From serenading our sisters, percentage nights, and practices multiple times a week, our members helped to prepare for our main event. Each fraternity had an anchorman who represented them in the pageant and question portion of the event, as well as someone who participated in the talent competition. To wrap up the event the fraternities each performed a dance, choreographed by their coaches, our members. With clever Delta Gamma related answers, remarkable piano players, and entertaining dances, there was never a dull moment! Multiple categories of awards were presented, including an overall award presented to Sigma Tau Gamma, the 2019 Anchor Splash champs! Although, Service for Sight is the real winner because we fundraised over $20,000 for our philanthropy!

Forever Home!

Hey sister, will you accept this rose? Our new members are officially official! Through inspiration and initiation, Beta Psi welcomed our new members into our chapter. These rituals are sacred to the women of Delta Gamma and we were delighted to share them with MC ’19. Following the initiation ceremony, families joined together in our beautiful home to celebrate with Monarch Coffee treats. Welcome to the lifelong membership of Delta Gamma, sisters!

Ghoul’s Night Out

With Halloween right around the corner, our members celebrated by dressing in costumes of their choice! The venue, The Historic Drish House, was decorated with spooky decorations to fit the occasion. Our members and their dates monster mashed into the hollows of the night. We had a fang-tastic evening!

Monochrome Date Party

From hot pink and wigs to cheetah print and denim jackets, our sisters and their dates enjoyed a night of color at Wilhagan’s in downtown Tuscaloosa. With live music and sisters like these, life’s a lot more colorful! Our first date party of the semester was a success!

Roll Tide Roll

Saturday’s are for Saban and our sisters! We are so excited to not only be back in Tuscaloosa but in Bryant Denny Stadium. Our Alabama football team took yet another win this Saturday over New Mexico State. We love game day and the tide, even in the Alabama heat. Roll tide!

We are Family!

We are family, we got all our sisters with us! We all found our home at Delta Gamma but within every home, there’s a family and our new members officially joined theirs. After several days of secret notes and gifts, littles, and generations of Delta Gamma families gathered at our house for the big reveal. Bigs decorated matching sailor hats and boxes to surprise their newest additions. We love you so much already, littles!

MC ’16 & MC ’17 Date Party

Go GREEK! Our upperclassmen, MC ’16 and MC ’17, partied like it was 800 BCE at Gallettes in Tuscaloosa for their date party. Our sisters and their dates put the “greek” in greek life, dressing in togas and gold accents. TOGA ’bout a good night!

Getting Ready for MC ’19

Without our preparation during work week and recruitment, we wouldn’t have been able to welcome all of our new members. Our recruitment team made all of the hard work worth it with themed days, fun activities, and the best member class on the row running home to Delta Gamma. Thanks to everyone for such an amazing recruitment!



Bid Day & Beyond!

Bid Day

On August 18th, after a long week of recruitment, the Beta Psi chapter welcomed home 120 new members. New members and their families celebrated bid day at the Delta Gamma mansion with Full Moon barbecue, Steel City Pops and lots of love from their new sisters. We’re so happy to finally have our girls in our arms. Welcome home MC ’19, we love you!



Bid Day Retreat

The newest Delta Gamma sisters departed after their Bid Day fun for the annual new member retreat at the Georgia Aquarium. Here they were able to spend the night sleeping “under the sea.”



Bid Day Sisterhood

We celebrated the Beta Psi chapter with a sisterhood date party at The Bear Trap in Tuscaloosa. Decked out in glitter and colors, we were livin’ the dream… dancing and singing the night away with our sisters!



First Day of Fall Semester

Who wouldn’t be excited for the first day of classes with our Delta Gamma sisters?! With work week and recruitment successfully over, we are settled into the Delta Gamma mansion and prepared to start school. We’re on the road to success this semester!
