Recruitment 2015 with Delta Zeta

A letter from our Vice President of Membership:

It’s almost that time of the year again folks! The one where all of our lovely sisters return to Columbia to cheer their hearts out, show their Delta Zeta pride, and most importantly, to recruit SSthe very best women to join the Beta Delta chapter. I am so excited for Spirit Week and formal recruitment to begin. I am so fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to lead our chapter through an experience that will help Beta Delta now and for many years down the road. The new members that join our chapter will become the legacy of the recruiters and the future of our chapter, which is what makes this process so important and exciting.

A big thanks to the Executive Board, sisters, volunteer advisors and local alumnae that have helped so far with all preparations. Our members have been making great strides in preparing for formal recruitment and I can’t wait to see what the four rounds will hold for us and the future of our chapter!

-Sarah Schank, Vice President of Membership


With the start of a new school year quickly approaching, our chapter is excited to open our doors to all the potential new members going through formal recruitment at the University of South Carolina!
