SO YOUR DAUGHTER IS JOINING? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Thank you for taking the time to come to our website!
The sisters of Delta Psi Delta recognize that the recruitment and New Member period can be a very new experience to both your daughter and yourself. We hope to address some concerns you may have in the following letter. If you are unsure or would like some additional explanation please contact us!
Your daughter has expressed interest to become a New Member of Delta Psi Delta. We will get to know your daughter through the recruitment period. Recruitment is a variety of social and philanthropy based events where we can know more about each other. The Delta Psi Delta sisters hope to find common qualities and characteristics with your daughter that are embedded into Delta Psi Delta sorority such as Leadership, Scholarship, and Service. After recruitment period your daughter may be eligible to become a New Member.
The New Member period is sometimes a misunderstood process because people automatically assume that there is hazing. The sisters of Delta Psi Delta want to assure you that at no point or time will your daughter encounter hazing with our sorority. We realize that the New Members are our future sisters and would never want to put them in physical or psychological harm. Please be assured that the New Member period is a memorable experience that truly brings members closer together and learn about Delta Psi Delta's history.
Every semester each chapter takes part in countless philanthropy activities. A common favourite is our annual Halloween Food Drive. On Halloween the sisters of Delta Psi Delta go to houses (which have been previously notified) collecting canned and non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. We also participate in the MS walk every year, as well doing numerous fundraisers throughout the year in support of The Battered Women's Shelter.
Delta Psi Delta sisters also takes pride in our academics. We understand that school is the number one priority for every member. There is a grade requirement to apply and remain in Delta Psi Delta. We try to help our sisters as much as possible to achieve academic success. Whether it is: sitting beside a sister in lecture, lending study notes, offering advice about particular classes or professors, or planning a study date at the library for an upcoming exam, Delta Psi Delta sisters are always here to help each other achieve academic sucess.
If you have any additional concerns or questions do not hesitate to contact us. We will try to respond to you as soon as we possibly can.
