Delta Delta Delta
Established in 1909 at Stanford, Delta Delta Delta has welcomed hundreds of members to the Omega Chapter, and has continued its rich history through leadership, friendship, and philanthropy. Delta Delta Delta members truly pride themselves on being a diverse group of girls who come together as one community.
Located in the Cowell Cluster, 702 Bowdoin Lane is where TriDelta sisters can be found working on psets in the kitchen, hosting movie nights, or raiding each other’s rally boxes to get ready for a night out. Delta Delta Delta sisters can be seen all over campus. You can find us rolling out to support our sisters at dance, theater, and athletic events.
More than that, being a Delta Delta Delta means being a sister in everyday moments from impromptu dance parties in the lounge to snack runs to chats during our amazing dinners (thanks to our wonderful chef, Sal!). The Delta Delta Delta community not only forms relationships that are meaningful and sincere, but also promises remarkable memories and laughs.
Because Delta Delta Delta is not simply another house on campus, we love bonding with each other through a variety of social events. Not only is Delta Delta Delta's social calendar packed with mixers, ski trip, and activities with communities around campus, but it also includes Deltas-only events such as Halloween pumpkin-decorating, “Olinpics,” and Tridelta-ria. Add in a quarterly formal and Special Dinner to the mix and you know you are in for some insanely fun times.
Delta Delta Delta also proves that “philanthropy” and “fun” are not mutually exclusive. Delta Delta Delta members rally just as hard to put on philanthropy events as they do for the unforgettable mixers. Events such as Stacks charity brunch and DHOP raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, our philanthropy partner. Delta Delta Delta as a national organization has pledged to raise $60 million in the next 10 years, which may sound like a lot but the organization has already exceeded the first goal of $15 million in 5 years. Delta Delta Delta's dedication to philanthropy extends to other student groups as members can be seen working with Dance Marathon, Relay For Life, and EPATT just to name a few. While each girl in Delta Delta Delta is enthusiastic and passionate about what she does, everyone can’t wait to welcome a new pledge class into the Delta Delta Delta community and learn about their unique interests!
Full Financial Breakdown:
Average Dues: $220 per quarter (first-time dues are $581)
Information about dues:
Our chapter dues cover many of our sister bonding events, social events with other organizations, and retreats. To keep our dues low, certain costs, such as our quarterly gear order, special Ds, and our annual winter trip, are optional. However, many of our members take advantage of these opportunities to rep our sorority and bond with other members! For our philanthropic events, each Tri Delta member participates in fundraising efforts by selling tickets or wristbands for events and letter writing for donations. Big Little Week, one of the most exciting times for new members, is possible through materials provided through our organization, from other sisters or from your own contributions.
A portion of our dues also goes into a national scholarship fund for Tri Delta members. Each year, you can also apply for a series of national merit scholarships to alleviate some costs of tuition! Through the university, financial aid is offered through the Diversity and First-Generation (DGEN) office to cover dues. Potential members who are worried about the financial aspects of Greek life can talk to our financial officers or reach out to our Standards committee to work through the situation and explore options.
Tri Delta is dedicated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through one of the largest sorority-philanthropic partnerships! Our fundraising efforts contribute to St. Jude’s mission to research, treat, and cure childhood cancer. As a national organization, Tri Delta has pledged to raise $60 million in 10 years. In the fall, we host DHOP (Delta House of Pancakes), where we cook hundreds of pancakes for delivery and to sell to passersby on the row. In the winter, we hosts STACKS at our house, where we cook eggs and pancakes for our wider community members, listen to our student groups perform, and to sell pancakes. Through these philanthropy events and our spring letter-writing campaign, we raise more than $20,000 each year! In addition to chapter philanthropy, Tri Delta members are also involved in a variety of other volunteer organizations such as Dance Marathon, The Bridge, Kids with Dreams, the High School Support Initiative, and many others.
We appreciate all forms of engagement in our chapter. Our minimum requirements for members are to attend weekly chapter meetings and philanthropic events. On top of that, there are so many other opportunities to give to the community, participate in philanthropy, and represent Tri Delta. Some members choose to commit more time by planning and organizing events for the chapter as a member or as as part of the leadership team.
