My name is Hadley Allen and I am beyond honored to be serving as the President of the Omicron chapter of Tri Delta. I speak for the entire chapter when I say that I am so excited to have you visiting our official website. It’s safe to say that I fell in love with Omicron and its members well before I was an initiated one. However, there’s some irony in this. Freshman Hadley was never dead-set on rushing, and definitely never self-identified as a ‘sorority girl’.
The reasons why I ended up choosing Tri Delta during recruitment continue to be the reasons why it is so extraordinarily special. I was struck by the unwavering strength of the sisterhood existing between its members, and the extent to which they were being held to (and holding each other to) a higher standard. It seemed like becoming an Omicron member would give me the opportunity to make the best friends I could ever ask for, and the opportunity to become a much better, maybe even the best, version of myself. Looking back, I’m realizing that I could not possibly have been more right.
This organization has transformed me into the perceptive, passionate, and powerful woman and leader that I have always wanted to be. And it’s given me so many friends I simply cannot imagine my life without. Our chapter’s beauty really lies in these friends of mine, my sisters, its members. We have an incredibly wide variety of individuals all united by an overwhelming passion for Omicron and Tri Delta at large, who also share a strong sense of purpose. The women of Omicron care as much about each other and having a good time with each other as they do our national philanthropic partner, St. Jude children’s Research Hospital for example.
I was fortunate enough to visit St. Jude when I was our chapter’s Philanthropy Chairman. It’s hard to put into words just how awe-inspiring it is, but what I can tell you, is that Tri Delta and Omicron more specifically are making a real impact. Two years ago, our chapter was named the highest fundraising chapter in the Northeast and this past year, our annual Delta Diner Pancake Breakfast raised over $10,000. St. Jude declared it the most outstanding fundraising event in 2014 as a result.
These accomplishments and many more are such great testaments to the aforementioned quality of our sorority. I am just so proud and so excited to be sharing some of our story and members with you. But I am even more excited to get amazing new additions in the spring! If you have any questions about recruitment, Omicron, or Tri Delta in general, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Delta Love and All of Mine,
Hadley Earl Allen
President, Omicron Chapter of Tri Delta
