Thank you for taking the time to recommend a potential new member to Tri Delta! Here are a few reminders before you get started:
References are no longer required for membership in Tri Delta. As of 2018, a reference form is no longer required for a potential new member to be able to be offered a bid to Tri Delta.
Many chapters do not review or rely on references. Since references are no longer required for membership in Tri Delta, each chapter takes a different approach when they receive a reference for a potential new member. Some chapters use them to get to know members better. Some keep them on file in case they need more information. Some do not reference them at all. Please know that submitting a reference does not provide a potential new member with an advantage in receiving a bid to Tri Delta. A reference form simply serves as an introduction of the potential new member to the chapter.
Tri Delta does not give any preferential treatment to legacies during recruitment. While we recognize and celebrate family connections/legacies when family members join our sisterhood, Tri Delta does not give any preferential treatment to legacies during recruitment. Legacy status does not ensure an invitation to any round of recruitment or an automatic bid. If a legacy joins Tri Delta, this special family relationship is celebrated at Initiation and throughout their lifetime membership in Tri Delta. Each potential new member can decide how and if they would like to disclose their legacy status to a potential chapter.
Potential new members interested in joining a sorority can submit an information form to introduce themselves to the chapter. This form is another way to help our chapters identify potential new members during this time of limited contact on campus.
