Summary

Delta Delta Delta was founded on Thanksgiving Eve 1888 at Boston

University and the University of Vermont’s Eta Chapter was founded five years

later on February 27, 1893.

Our national philanthropy is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In

2010, Tri Delta chapters across the country pledged to raise $15 million dollars

by 2015. Half way through 2013 we achieved that goal and are still continuing

in this strong direction. There is a Tri Delta sponsored Teen Room at St. Jude in

Memphis, TN and we are known by the children there as the “triangle girls”.

Eta Chapter values the importance of service, scholarship, sisterhood, and

the development of strong character.

Our colors are cerulean blue, silver, and gold.

 

Mission

THE PURPOSE OF DELTA DELTA DELTA shall be to establish a perpetual bond

and develop mutually beneficial relationships between the Fraternity and the colleges

women.

Chapter Facts

Tri Delta Eta Chapter takes great pride in our national philanthropy. Some of our

signature philanthropy events include Delta House of Pancakes (DHOP), Delta

Desserts, and Sincerely Yours. Our Eta alum, Elyse Gambardella, was the first to

bring Relay for Life to the University of Vermont and many of our members play

a large role in planning this event every year. We also are active participations in

the Burlington and UVM communities. Our sisters volunteer with the Salvation

Army, Habitat for Humanity, Pets Helping People, DREAM and the American

Red Cross. On campus, women are involved in many organizations such as the

Student Alumni Association, Outing Club, AdvoCat Tour Guides, UVM Program

Bored, Hillel, Med Life and many more. We have members involved in varsity

athletics, club sports and every semester we play intramurals like broomball,

kickball and dodge ball. We are continuing to strive for excellence within the

Fraternity and Sorority Community at UVM.

 

 

Organization Facts

Delta Delta Delta was founded by Sarah Ida Shaw, Eleanor Dorcas Pond, Florence Isabelle Stewart, and Isabel Morgan Breed in 1888 and began as an organization concerned with the growth and development of the college woman and has evolved into a leader among sororities. Tri Delta's founders were young women of great vision; the organization has been national in concept from its inception. Less than three years after its founding, Tri Delta was recognized as an established national organization and was invited to participate in the first panhellenic meeting.
