Tri Delta is committed to changing the way the world treats and defeats childhood cancer – locally through raising funds and support to children’s cancer charities and hospitals, and at the national level through our partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Tri Delta has raised more than $75 million for St. Jude since 1999, and as a result of our latest pledge, St. Jude to named its short-term housing facility on the St. Jude campus Tri Delta Place. Our collegiate chapters are on the front lines of raising funds and awareness for St. Jude on their campuses and in their communities.
As part of the collegiate chapter experience, a member will participate in current, relevant and Tri Delta related educational programming that will inspire them to live, learn and lead – with Purpose. Over the course of the collegiate experience, a Tri Delta enjoys a host of opportunities for personal growth as a student, woman and leader. Throughout the collegiate experience, members will attain core competencies and skill development in each of these areas.
Helping our sisters become the best versions of themselves starts at the beginning—with New Member Education—and continues through a lifetime. We offer all members opportunities for personal growth, leadership and professional development through our signature programs.

Why Our Members Chose Tri Delta
Here is a little information from our Membership Experience Team on why they chose Tri Delta!
"During recruitment, I knew I wanted to be a Tri Delta. Listening to members talk about their dedication not only to Tri Delta but as a student, leader, and friend made me feel that I could reach all of my collegiate goals. Bring surrounded by a genuine and compassionate sisterhood where we support one another in all of our endeavors is one of the biggest reasons I have stayed along with the lifelong friendships I have made. I am thankful for the endless memories and forever home Tri Delta has given me."
"When I was going through recruitment, Tri Delta stuck out to me in the best ways possible. Every time someone passed me in the hall, they smiled and said hi. Conversations were so genuine and I felt like I was talking to an old friend. I admired the sisterhood, philanthropy, academics, and leadership that Tri Delta had and I wanted to surround myself with these women because I felt like they would push me to be my best and catch me when I fall. Tri Delta has given me so many amazing memories, skills and friendships that I will always be thankful for. Going Tri Delta has given me my home away from home."
"Recruitment for me was a grueling process filled with stress and anxiety about representing myself in such a way that those whose sisterhood I wanted to join also wanted me back. Everyday was exhausting putting on a smile and reading over my list of questions before each house. Until the third day when I got to Tri Delta, and it felt like coming up for air. I was laughing and having an easy conversation, like I had known these women for years. Hearing that our time was up was so upsetting and I knew I couldn’t wait to get back tomorrow. Everyone talks about their cheesy moment with a house and mine isn’t any different. I found my people, my safe space, and my forever home at Tri Delta that day and never looked back."

"I began my freshman year knowing I wanted to join greek life. I knew that joining a chapter would provide me with social endeavors and good academic structure. I've been a member of TriDelta for three years now and it has exceeded all of my expectations. This chapter has provided me opportunities to serve the community and opportunities that have improved my leadership skills that I didn't know I had. I addition, Tri Delta has continued to motivate me in my academic goals. Tri Delta promotes and strengthens sisterhood not only among its collegiate members but Alumnae members as well. Connecting closely with TriDelta's Alumnae has made me optimistic about life after graduation. A life that Tri Delta will always be a part of."
"During recruitment I chose Tri Delta because I knew it was home. Today, I continually choose Tri Delta because it has shown me so much more than just a home; it has shown me friendship beyond compare. The women in this house support me more than I could have ever thought possible and push me to be better in every way. Being surrounded by women who have goals in every direction shows me that I can accomplish what I set my mind to. Although I am just a freshman, Tri Delta has already provided me with so many opportunities and memories that I hope will last a lifetime."
