We are passionate about serving others, committed to becoming the best version of ourselves and dedicated to helping women live, learn and lead – with purpose – for a lifetime.
A Message from the Chapter President
Welcome to the website of Tri Delta’s Gamma Sigma chapter! We are a large chapter of diverse and passionate women who strive to live and lead with kindness and boldness at Colgate and beyond. Our founder, Sarah Ida Shaw, wished to found an organization that was “kind alike to all” while encouraging members to be unselfish leaders, to seek intellectual growth, and to aim to become stronger women. Tri Deltas practice these core values daily through their involvement at a university, chapter, and global level by participating in organizations at Colgate, holding chapter officer positions, and partaking in international studies and internships.
Sisters are involved in a large variety of clubs, sports teams, and leadership roles at Colgate. From Hamilton’s local EMT organization to varsity swimming and dance groups, if there’s a club there’s probably a Tri Delta on it! Throughout the academic year, we also work to fundraise for our philanthropic partner St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Events such as our Sincerely Yours letter-writing campaign and TriHOP pancake breakfast raise a total of $55,000 on average every year. Taking part in fundraising and leadership roles helps us grow as passionate women that are determined to make a difference in the world around us.
In addition to unselfish leadership and philanthropy, Tri Deltas consistently work towards academic excellence and achievements such as Greek Senior Scholars. Tri Delta’s average GPA Fall 2017 was a 3.46, which is higher than the average Colgate GPA! In 2018 Tri Deltas made up almost one-fourth of all Greek Senior Scholars, which is awarded to fraternity and sorority seniors that obtain a GPA of 3.5 or higher. We plan study breaks in Case library and at the Delta house with movies, slices, and face masks so that sisters can catch up and relax after strenuous study sessions!
Tri Delta has become home for my sisters and me because of the love and support our chapter is built on. I speak for my sisters when I say that Tri Delta is a meaningful part of our Colgate experience and I for one am very grateful for her!
