A prominent part of our chapter is our philanthropy, which we are extremely passionate about. Our philanthropic focus is found in our partnership with St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This partnership allows Tri Delta chapters the opportunity to help St. Jude on a national level, as well as support traditional philanthropic events for local children’s cancer charities. One of our annual events here at the Alpha Nu chapter of Tri Delta is DHOP: A late night breakfast buffet for Charleston students, locals, and tourists to raise money for St. Jude. We stand in front of the entrance to Cougar Mall on Calhoun from 10pm to 2am, making pancakes (chocolate chip by request of course!), bacon, and juice, for hungry customers. It’s a great opportunity for our chapter to raise money, while having fun and bonding with our sisters. Other philanthropic events we host are a tennis tournament called “Delta Doubles,” and a writing letter event called “Sincerely Yours.”
Sisterhood is an incredibly important part of our chapter here at the College of Charleston. From late night study sessions in the library, to de-stressing with a movie night or group yoga sessions, you will always find yourself making amazing memories with your sisters. Our chapter emphasizes leadership, service, and our community. Each member of our chapter is involved in another club or organization on campus. We strive to be hands on within the community and make our difference on campus.
Besides from our philanthropy, service, and sisterhood, Tri Delta also hosts fun social events. Each year following our exciting Big/Little reveal, we have one of our favorite social events of the year called “Sister Mister.” It is a semi-formal function in which the new big sisters select their little sisters’ dates, but the baby deltas do not meet their date until the night of the dance. It gives the new members the great opportunity to meet some new friends. Besides Sister Mister, we have two formals each year, monthly mixers with other Greek organizations, a spring oyster roast, and other events throughout the year, like a Valentine’s Day date party. Not only do we socialize with collegiate members, but also we have two events in which alumni are invited. We have a Founder’s Day dinner and Pansy Breakfast. These two events allow our current members to talk with and get to know some alumni of the Alpha Nu chapter.
The Alpha Nu chapter is living our purpose by establishing “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.”
