For the sisters at the Delta Psi chapter, sisterhood is the foundation to all our core values. All the things we achieve, including academics, philanthropy, and leadership, are all gained with a little help from our sisters. We pride ourselves in having the honor to help each other grow to be the best we can be. Whether we are at a philanthropy event for a different organization, a date function, or simply at a movie night, we make sure that we take the time to appreciate these golden moments with our sisters. After all, Robin Benway did say that there is one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood.
Of the innumerable benefits of joining a sorority sisterhood events are the ones you can’t begin to replicate in other organizations. Whether we are in our chapter room, affectionately called “the chappy,” during the Bachelorette and cringing together when Nick came back or hiking to inspiration point at sunset we make sisterhood time a priority. It isn’t difficult either because our sisters are the first ones we turn to for a late night freebs run or (for some of us) a 7 am actual run. We also have a semiannual sisterhood retreat every fall and spring to get to know new members and kick off a grand new year. Gamma Phi’s at UCSB take every advantage of the ocean and held last spring’s retreat on a lovely catamaran for a sunset cruise down the coast. Other sisterhood events have included beach yoga, museum trips, spa days, and flower crown making, to name a few.
