University of Alabama students everywhere rejoiced as the Crimson Tide took home its 17th National Championship in college football! Our sisters were no exception. Sisters donned our game day best and headed to New Orleans, Atlanta and Tuscaloosa for the Sugar Bowl and the National Championship game. We braved the cold weather (we’re not used to it in Alabama) to cheer on our team to victory! One thing is for sure, DG loves the Tide!
Delta Gamma hosted our annual formal, Anchor Ball, this month! All our sisters and their dates were dressed to the nines. We took over the dance floor (well, three floors) at Glorybound and danced the night away! The party was accompanied by a DJ upstairs and a live band downstairs. We didn’t want the night to end. It was definitely a night to remember!

Campus Involvement: On campus I am most involved with Bama Hillel. I love being part of an organization that gives me another “second home” outside of DG and allows me to find a smaller Jewish community while I’m so far from home!
Recent Accomplishments: Over the past year and a half, I’ve lectured in multiple human development classes to raise awareness about eating disorders and help students who want to work in the addiction recovery field learn more about how to help them.
Favorite DG Memory: My favorite DG memory was our trip to six flags last year! Because I was a freshman and didn’t know many people, it was a great way to get to know a ton of my sisters and create lasting memories while getting to go to the amusement park for the first time!
Fun Fact: I’ve done musical theater since I was a little girl, being cast in more than 15 shows in a span of 5 years! Something else that people may not know is that I have a YouTube channel that I’ve been working on and off on since freshman year of high school; it’s small but definitely helps me with the editing and filming aspect of my major.

Involvement in Delta Gamma: Panhellenic Delegate, basketball, flag football
Campus Involvement: I have served as a class leader for the Culverhouse LIFT program, Sigma Rho Chi, Director of Finance for the SGA Homecoming Executive Board, member of Beta Alpha Psi, and other various roles within SGA. I have loved getting to be involved in multiple areas across campus over my four years, and I would not be the person I am today or have the great friends I have without these roles!
Recent Accomplishments: I am currently completing a spring internship with Ernst & Young in Atlanta, working in financial services assurance.
