Volunteer History

Volunteers have been  an integral part of Tri Delta since our founding.


Provisions for volunteers was made for alumnae participation in the organization from the very beginning. Alumnae members have supported collegiate chapter operations as advisors, long before the term alumnae advisor came into use.
Requirements for alumnae advisors was first mandated in the 1910 Rubrics of the Delta Delta Delta Fraternity, making use of the policy that had been in place long before then.

Early volunteers were key in helping to obtain housing for collegians, not only in finding rooms, but also in securing financing. They were an essential element in forming house corporations, since collegians were not of legal age to sign contracts.

Volunteers have been, and continue to be,  the backbone of Tri Delta. Without their support, we simply could not exist.

April 19 - April 23, 2010 is National Volunteer Week. For more information about how to become a volunteer for Tri Delta visit the Volunteer section of the Web site or contact Ashley Coleman, volunteer enrichment coordinator.
