A LETTER FROM OUR vp: membership
Hey y’all! My name is Meaghan Shaw and I am Delta Gamma’s Vice President of Membership. I want to say on behalf of the chapter that we are so excited to meet each of you in August!
I grew up in an area where it seemed like everyone’s older siblings were a part of Greek life. I knew nothing about it, but I figured, why not give it a try when I came to UGA? Little did I know that the week I went through recruitment would have such an impact on my college experience.
I knew from the moment I stepped foot in the Delta Gamma house – or, we lovingly call it, the Deeg – that something was different about these girls. Instantly, I felt welcomed and at home. That was the feeling that ultimately led me to make the decision to become a Delta Gamma, and it is a decision that I continue to make every day.
That’s not to say that recruitment is a breeze. However, I can say with confidence that these women are the ones who have challenged me to become a better version of myself.
They celebrate my accomplishments and pick me up when I fall. They make me proud to call them my sisters, which is not a word I take lightly.
I know that no matter what I do, I can count on my DG sisters to have my back. It might be joining a new club, studying all night in the MLC, or just going on a coffee run, but I know that there will always be a sister to support me. At the end of the day, support is what friendship is all about.
I wish you peace and joy during recruitment. There are 19 wonderful sororities on campus: I hope from the bottom of my heart that you choose to go where you feel you can become the woman you are meant to be. My advice to you is to never forget that the most important person in your life is the woman you are becoming.
See you in August, and as always, go dawgs –
