Letter from Recruitment Chair
Greetings from Texas Tech University!
A college is a difficult decision, whether you live nearby or more than 2,000 miles away. However, I'm here to assure you that the choice I made in 2021 was the best one ever! I was born and raised in the Dallas region, but I am from Mansfield, Texas. Even though I adore the city, I realized it was time for a change and to start my adult life somewhere new. But as soon as I arrived on campus and said goodbye to my family, I panicked. I had no friends and was simply attempting to determine where I was supposed to fit in. I truly found my home away from home after going through recruitment and joined the lovely sisterhood of Delta Gamma. You are about to embark on an incredible but crazy trip, and I entirely get that. You won't regret it, I promise; just believe me on this. You should take part in Fall Primary Recruitment to find your home away from home. Finding your second home can offer you sisterhood, support, care, and love.
You genuinely never comprehend how one hour, one day, or one week can improve your life. As someone who has gone through recruitment, I was pretty anxious until I had a genuine conversation with my now-best friend. I have gained lasting friendships, leadership skills, sisterhood, scholarships, opportunities/internships, and the ability to give back to your community and the wider world, thanks to Delta Gamma. More importantly, Delta Gamma has helped me achieve my goals of getting a job at the Deans office at the College of Arts and Sciences and helping people in my community. I will always hold Delta Gamma and the friends I have acquired here in the highest regard. Find what makes you happy no matter what you decide to accomplish with your life. In college, my best experiences and friendships were created through Delta Gamma, which will last for life.
Here at Delta Gamma, we want you to be your authentic self, but most importantly, we hope you find something that anchors you. We can not wait to set sail with our New Member Class of Fall 2023! Please register for Fall Primary Recruitment at the Texas Tech Panhellenic website, and I hope you find your home.
With love and ITB,
Vice President of Membership for Texas Tech Delta Gamma 2023 - Lydia Bettger
