Recruitment

We are blessed that our alumnae wish to be involved in the recruitment process. It ensures the Tri Delta legacy continues as more wonderful young women join our sisterhood. Since new alumnae are writing references each year and the process and vernacular change year to year ("rush" is now "recruitment" and a "rushee" is now a "potential new member (PNM)"), we ask you to take the time to download and read, Frequently Asked Questions. This information sheet is designed to save you and the reference committee time, insures all copies submitted on time by the May 1 deadline, and gives your potential new member the best chance to be a Tri Delta.

 

Writing a reference is a great way to ensure that the ranks of Tri Delta will keep growing with each generation of bright, outstanding young women. We appreciate your time, careful consideration and attention to the instructions.

The Houston Alumnae Chapter Reference Committee processes 700+ references for PNM's who attend school (public or private) in Houston ISD and Spring Branch ISD only.  Any PNM from another school district should contact her hometown DDD alumnae chapter, or area Panhellenic for guidance. Completed reference packets must be received by a committee member by May 1. If a college choice is not final, send to the Reference Chairman.

Tri Delta Legacies
Recruitment Donations
Reference Writing

What exactly is a legacy? Legacies are daughters or sisters of Tri Delta initiates. The Houston Alumnae Chapter processes legacy information through the membership form. If you are not a current dues-paying Houston Tri Delta Alumna, please join online today. There is a spot on the membership form to enter legacy data. Once you are in our database through membership, the Houston Alumnae Chapter helps ensure that you and your daughter stay up-to-date on recruitment information once she is a junior in high school.

 

During recruitment, each collegiate chapter and each sorority handles legacies differently and therefore should be contacted regarding their particular policies. Although they are generally extended a certain level of courtesy, it is never associated with a guaranteed bid.

The Houston Alumnae Chapter hosts a party each year and includes area legacies. The Pine Party is held each year around the Christmas holidays and is held primarily in honor of current Tri Delta collegians and their mothers. High school junior and senior legacies and their mothers are also invited.

 

Houston Panhellenic hosts a Recruitment Roundtable each spring for mothers and daughters to encourage participation in the recruitment and membership recruitment process, to educate prospective new members and to answer questions regarding the women's fraternity system. 

In addition to your references and letters, we need your financial support. Many times we are asked to help support the collegiate chapters by providing meals during work week, and we ask for your financial donations to help us provide the meals and push our Houston girls! We thank you in advance for your support.
