Dear Potential New Member,
The ladies of Delta Delta Delta warmly welcome you to Texas Tech, and we share your excitement about going through Recruitment. We found "going Tri Delt" to be the perfect choice for us - one that has offered leadership opportunities, lasting friendships, and incredible support.
Coming to college is a huge step and can seem intimidating and overwhelming at times. We were in your shoes not long ago, feeling many of the same things you have felt. Being a part of a sorority makes that transition easier, and we would like to share some of what we have experienced. In Tri Delt, we have found an amazing home away from home where we offer:
- 150 new friends waiting to welcome you with open arms on Bid Day.
- Meaningful, fun activities to enhance your first weeks at Texas Tech and a New Member Retreat where you can really get to know your new pledge sisters.
- A Big Sister to ensure that there is always someone there just for you.
- An Academic Program to help with the transition to a college work load.
- A Philanthropy Program that encourages you to volunteer in the community.
- Moms' and Dads' Weekends to help families get to know one another.
- Countless activities where you can get involved on campus, football games, parties, mixers, and simply friends spending time together.
- Hours, days, and years of laughter, inside jokes, late night talks, common interests, and shared memories!
Sorority life gives you an immediate sense of belonging in this new setting because you are surrounded and supported by friends who have invited you into their world. Tri Delta seeks out the best part of who you are and inspires you to take that even further. We hope that each of you takes advantage of this unique opportunity, and we hope that each of you finds the happiness, security, and sense of belonging that we have found in Tri Delt. We promise it is waiting.

Greek Life at Texas Tech
All sororities were built upon the same founding values:
- Academic Excellence
- Involvement and Leadership
- Community Service and Philanthropy
- Sisterhood and Friendship
The National Panhellenic Council (NPC) is the national coordinating body of 26 member sororities. Locally, the Panhellenic Council is the governing body for the NPC sororities on a college campus. The Panhellenic Council coordinates recruitment, provides programming and activities for sorority women, and works as a self-governing support system to the sororities on the Texas Tech Campus.
There are 11 NPC sororities at Texas Tech. The decision to join one of these sororities means that an individual is interested in a college experience based upon the founding values of sorority life.
Some of the ways that you will see these values in action on our campus include:
- The All-Greek and Sorority GPA are consistently higher than the all-university GPA.
- Sorority sponsored scholarships for academic achievement
- Study hall and academic tutoring sessions
- All-Greek honor societies
- Leadership positions within the sororities and on all-Greek committees and councils
- Fraternity and sorority members holding campus-wide leadership positions such as the Student Government Association
- Community service events such as the Tech Can Share Food Drive and Greek Treat (fraternities and sororities open their lodges to the Lubbock community to provide a safe environment for trick-or-treating and activities)
- Relay for Life benefiting the American Cancer Society
- Greek Week
- Homecoming activities
- Arbor Day
- Big Sis/Little Sis activities
- Greek Sisters events (sororities participate in service projects or fun activities with another sorority)
- Chapter retreats
We hope that you enjoy learning more about the sororities at Texas Tech!
