A letter from our president
“Sigma Delta Tau empowers each member to reach her fullest potential,” a line from our mission statement that I strive to work towards each and every day.
Sigma Delta Tau has given me so much more than I ever expected to gain in my shortened time at American University. I have found a group of women that genuinely care about me and my wellbeing. I have never had a stronger support system in my life, and could not have made it through this year without my sisters by my side. This community has allowed me to grow into a better friend, stronger leader, and kinder person. Having women to support me through all my endeavors allows me to stretch my comfort zone, knowing I will always have people to catch me if I fall.
We embed leadership, philanthropy, inclusivity, and scholarship into everything we do, enriching the environment where we create unforgettable memories and foster lifelong friendships. Every day, I am inspired by the women around me, who push themselves to be the best students, interns, volunteers, and leaders, while continuing to provide unconditional support to everyone in the chapter. The women, I proudly serve, have some of the biggest, most open hearts; they accept everyone for who they are and never change themselves to fit in.
Sigma Delta Tau was founded in 1917 by women who were excluded from the other sororities because of their religion, and to this day we strive to create an inclusive community for all. For the last 30 years, the Gamma Delta Chapter has created an organization tailored around individuality, engagement, connection, and community here at American University, and we continue to uphold these values within everything we do.
The women of Sigma Delta Tau want to welcome you.
We hope to see you soon!
President of Sigma Delta Tau - Gamma Delta Chapter
