Tri Delta Isn't Just For 4 Years, It's For a Lifetime
In Tri Delta, the joys of membership extend far beyond collegiate years. Members have the opportunity to renew and strengthen the bonds of sisterhood through alumnae chapters. The first alumnae chapter, originally called an "alliance," was formed in 1892. A little over 100 years later, there are over 350 alumnae chapters in every corner of the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Our alumnae membership numbers many thousands and is full of rich and diverse personalities, thanks to the unique personal development that occurs within Tri Delta.
Purpose of Alumnae Chapters Shall Be:
to encourage and foster cordial social relations among alumnae members of the Fraternity, to strengthen interest in the Fraternity on the part of all members of the Fraternity in the area concerned, to assist any collegiate chapter under the direction and with the permission of the collegiate district officer, to recommend personnel for collegiate chapters, and to suggest favorable fields of extension.
Mission Statement of Tri Delta Alumnae Chapters
Alumnae chapters shall reaffirm the Purpose of Delta Delta Delta and exemplify her high ideals. Alumnae chapters shall foster unselfish friendships among all members. Alumnae chapters shall provide opportunities for philanthropic service, personal enrichment and professional development in an atmosphere of sisterhood. Alumnae chapters shall support the collegiate chapters and the Foundation, and work to strengthen the Fraternity.
The seeds sown in
collegiate years blossom in the successful lives of our alumnae. Greek life on the whole
has been proven as some of the world's most effective leadership training, and
Tri Delta alumnae have distinguished themselves in every area of life. Below are
just a few of our most famous alumnae...

Gamma Nu Alumnae
When it comes to "distinguished Deltas", alumnae of Gamma Nu Chapter are certainly no exception! Our alumnae travel the world for business and higher education, serve our country in the Armed Forces, lobby in our nation's capital, and work for major national newspapers and non-profit corporations. Many continue to reap the benefits of membership through active involvement as alumnae, and two of our graduates have declared themselves Life Loyal Tri Deltas.
Gamma Nu Chapter offers a number of opportunities for continued involvement among its alumnae. Each spring, during Westminster's Alumni Weekend, we hold our Pansy Brunch, an opportunity to reunite with your collegiate sisters and honor the chapter's graduating seniors. Additionally, many alumnae volunteer their time and efforts during formal recruitment in the fall.
Gamma Nu is proud to associate closely with several area alumnae chapters, including Central Missouri, Jefferson City (MO), and St. Louis.
Finally, a number of Gamma Nu's alumnae are proud to serve the chapter as volunteers!
