Letter from our Recruitment Team
Summer 2020 Update
Dear Potential New Members,
Welcome to Kettering University! My name is Emerald, and I have the privilege of serving as the 2020
Vice President of Recruitment for Alpha Gamma Delta.
While recruitment and school may look a little different than usual this year, one thing that will
remain constant is the love and support experienced in Alpha Gam. I can’t imagine what the last few
months would’ve been like without my sisters. Even when we weren’t together, I still felt closer to
them than ever. They are a constant source of encouragement, empowerment and motivation for
me, which is why I’m so proud to be able to introduce them to you.
Alpha Gamma Delta aren't just letters that we wear—we are a group of women who are leaders,
scholars, philanthropists, athletes and so much more. You’ll find us cheering on our sisters and friends at
intermural games, on the Dean’s List, hanging out in the Sunset Room, participating in Greek Week
and helping others by Fighting Hunger on our campus and in our community. We work hard, support
each other and have a lot of fun along the way.
If you haven’t already signed up for recruitment yet—sign up today! Being part of the Greek community will help you experience the best that Kettering has to offer. My wish for you is that you find a home that gives you all the things that Alpha Gam has given me. I look forward to meeting you and telling you more about my Alpha Gam sisters!
See you soon,
Alpha Gamma Delta

My name is Emerald Dewey and I lead the recruitment team for the Zeta Omicron chapter. I am so excited that you are exploring our website and really hope you are considering joining the Alpha Gam family. As a freshman, I didn't consider joining a sorority initially. I believed there was a stigma around sororities and women who joined them, of course, all of my knowledge was based on movie portrayals. I thought there were stereotypes that someone had to fit to be able to join a sorority, and that I didn’t have the necessary qualifications. However, after a lot of personal reflection, I listened to the other women in my unit when they encouraged me to join them for rush events. After going to just one event, I had made connections with women who shared like-interests and wanted to really spend time with me.
I remember being nervous, and a little bit confused on the whole bidding process. However, my grandma, an alum, helped explain the process to me and encouraged me to accept a bid if I were to receive one. The ladies of Alpha Gamma Delta made me feel at home as soon as I walked through the door on bid day, I knew I had made the best decision for myself. That day is one I will never forget as it started my journey in the Zeta Omicron chapter. One year later, I am so excited to represent this chapter as Vice President - Recruitment and to lead the efforts of recruiting more young, and empowered women.
Alpha Gam has helped me grow as a person greatly since I began at Kettering. I urge every woman, at their own discretion, to join Greek life, to try things they wouldn’t normally participate in, and take chances. College is a once in a lifetime experience and it is so worthwhile to make the most of your four or five years there. For those of you who decide to go through recruitment, I cannot wait to meet and get to know you, and I most definitely cannot wait to introduce you to some of the best women I have ever met.
All the best,
Alpha Gamma Delta
