Tri Delta remains committed to the growth of all members through the stages of lifetime membership. Relevant programming is offered during the collegiate years to ensure a holistic and meaningful member experience – from Bid Day through senior year. Programs like New Member Education, Not Anymore and BodyImage3D give members the opportunities to begin their lifetime learning in Tri Delta and collaborate through effective programs. Participating members provided data supporting the learning outcomes of each program as supported through Tri Delta’s Growth and Development Philosophy:
