A reference or recommendation is a letter of introduction a Tri Delta member provides to a collegiate chapter on behalf of a potential new member.
Please remember, membership selection is the privilege and responsibility of the collegiate chapter members. A reference or letter of recommendation does not guarantee an invitation to membership.
To write a reference, you need to be a member in good standing with the Fraternity. Tri Delta offers an online reference form that is sent directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair where the potential new member is going through recruitment. You can also download a PDF copy of the form that you can either email or print and mail directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair. To access the reference form, you must log in to www.tridelta.org.
Reference processes vary greatly by chapter. Specific questions can be answered by an alumnae chapter reference chair in the university's area or by the collegiate chapter reference chair. Locate a reference chair when you log in to My Tri Delta, go to Resources > Board & Volunteer Directories > Reference Chairs.
Our chapter requests one letter of recommendation, two pictures of the potential new member, a transcript, test scores, and an optional maximum of two letters of support. Our chapter strongly recommends that references are emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org if possible. Otherwise, recommendations must be mailed to:
1503 Olympia Way
College Station, TX 77840
Lastly, I am honored and ecstatic to serve as Reference Chair for Gamma Alpha this year. Please never hesitate to ask me questions regarding reference packets or the recruitment process, I am happy to assist in anyway possible. I want to thank all of the alumni for your hard work throughout this entire process, it truly could not be done without y’all!!
