Delta Delta Delta was founded on Thanksgiving Eve 1888 at Boston University. Eta Chapter was founded February 27, 1893 at the University of Vermont. Tri Delta does not assess, meaning that there is only one payment each semester and it includes payment for t-shirts, formals, and any other extra payments that are needed. Our national philanthropy is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In working with other Tri Delta chapters across the country, we have pledged to raise $15 million dollars by 2015. There is a Tri Delta sponsored Teen Room at St. Jude in Memphis, TN.
Each member is considered either a pearl, a pine, or a pansy depending on which stage in their membership they are. The pearl symbolizes our new members, because it grows as they mature within the chapter. The Pine symbolizes our collegiate members. As the pine grows it represents aspirations that are shown in each of our collegiate members. And finally, the pansy, which is Tri Delta's flower represents the alumnae and the continuous membership that each person has in Delta Delta Delta. Our colors are cerulean blue, silver, and gold.
Eta Chapter values the importance of service, scholarship, sisterhood, and the development of strong character.
The purpose of Delta Delta Deltashall be to establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, to develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life, and to assist its members in every possible way.
Tri Delta Eta Chapter takes great pride in our national philanthropy. Some of our signature philanthropy events include Flapjack Fiesta, Charity Denim, Delta Dunks, and Sincerely Yours. We also are active participations in the Burlington community, sponsoring events for the Boys and Girls Club, the King Street Youth Center, Pets Helping People, and our 24 hour Teeter Tot event benefiting Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. Every semester we play intramural broomball as well as one additional sport. One of our Eta alums, Elyse Gambardella, was the first to bring Relay for Life to the University of Vermont. In 2010, we were named Sorority of the Year. We are continuing to strive for excellence with the Fraternity and Sorority Community at UVM.
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.
