Delta Gamma, Gamma Rho is a chapter that strives for diversity, and our campus involvement perfectly displays the various interests that our women have. Gamma Rho’s women represent a variety of academic interests, ranging from Business & Finance to Theatre & Dance. There are Math majors, Psychology majors, and majors from the Art, Education, Sociology, English, and Biology departments, to name a few. The various departmental specializations allow us to seek help from our sisters for any class we may be struggling with, which is always helpful! We also strive and are very proud to announce our involvement on campus.
Outside of our academics, Gamma Rho women are members of nearly a dozen different campus sports teams, including Lacrosse, Soccer, Tennis, Track and Field, Softball, Basketball, Swim and Dive, Cheerleading, Field Hockey and Rugby. There is never a shortage of events to attend to support our athletes and show our DG love! There is even more involvement in campus organizations: Union Board (the group that plans campus-wide events), Class Presidents who sit on Student Senate, Class Cabinet, the Student Alumni Board, Outdoors Club, WUSO (the campus radio station), the student dance company, theatre productions, and many more organizations are represented within our chapter. There are also writers for the school newspaper (The Torch), tour guides, community service interns, Orientation Assistants for new students, honor society members from various educational departments, and many women who have jobs all across campus. Almost anywhere you go at Wittenberg, you can find a Delta Gamma who is in some way involved.
As a chapter, we show our campus involvement by participating in the Night of Giving, an annual event where campus organizations come together to give back to the community and the world around us. This year, we wrote Christmas cards to send to the troops who could not be home for the holidays. We also participate in Survivor Africa, a fundraiser for the Lesotho, Africa trip. Some of the members of Gamma Rho have made the journey to Africa, where they helped to build houses and donated clothes to the people in need. In October, Gamma Rho looks forward to painting faces and passing out candy to community children during the Trunk or Treat event, providing Halloween spirit to all who attend. We love to support our campus by participating in these and other events, especially by supporting other Greek chapters at their philanthropic events throughout the year!
