The sisters of Delta Eta Iota sorority endeavor to enrich lives through community service. We provide opportunities for young women both on and off campus to become involved in the community.
Members of Delta Eta Iota develop invaluable leadership skills, making our women strong and diverse members of the community.
There are many leadership opportunities for all members. Some are obvious: heading a fundraiser, organizing an event, taking on a chair position (such as Academic Chair or Public Relations). Other leadership opportunities are less clear.
Our sorority is not only an organization, but a support group.
We reach out to our sisters for all kinds of things: advice, a laugh, a shoulder to cry on.
Our sisters are leaders in many subtle, yet valuable ways.
If a sister is having family problems and another sister organizes a care package be sent to her, that's an example of being a leader.
If plans for a social event fall through and a sister offers a suggestion for another event, that's being a leader, too.
There are two main ways Delta's acquire mentorship experience: through volunteer experience, and by becoming a Big Sister.
All sisters have the opportunity to mentor other students by taking on leadership roles in the sorority.
Our most unique (and arguably, most rewarding) mentorship experience is the Big/Little mentor program.
The moment you choose to become a Delta, you are matched with a Big Sister.
A "Big" is an existing member of the sorority who has requested a "Little" , and your Big Sister is your guide to Delta and Greek Life.
Our Sisterhood Chair matches up Bigs and Littles based on their backgrounds, interests, hobbies, academic experience, and personalities.
Big/Little relationships last forever; it is a unique bond. Becoming a Big provides you with the opportunity to mentor a new member, and is completely voluntary.
Delta Eta Iota provides endless opportunities to expand your social network and create lifelong friendships.
Not only do you become close with your pledge class, by becoming a sister you are immediately introduced to all our existing members.
We provide opportunities to meet Alumni and stay in contact with members after graduation.
Our Sisterhood Chair and Social Chair work together to provide opportunities for sisterhood bonding.
We are friendly with other Greek organizations and clubs on campus and throughout Canada.
Our members are scattered all over Alberta, throughout Canada, and we have members in other countries.
Many people view Greek Organizations are purely social groups. This could not be farther from the truth.
Delta Eta Iota is, at its core, a University Organization. We are all here for a common purpose: school. We take academia seriously.
We have a minimum GPA requirement which is monitored and strictly enforced by our Academic Chair.
If you're not meeting our GPA standards, not to worry! We provide academic mentorship;
our Academic Chair provides regular study sessions and workshops for those looking to improve their grades.
Our members represent every faculty on campus, including programs at Lethbridge College. There's a study buddy for everyone.
We do have academic standards, but these rules are only in place to ensure each sister is meeting her own personal academic goals.
Delta Eta Iota strives to make a difference in people's lives every day.
We volunteer our time to different local community organizations.
We work to raise money in support of various groups and causes, local and national.
Our Fundraising Chair and Community Service Chair work together to get our girls out into the community.
Delta Eta Iota communicates regularly with the Community Service representatives of Kappa Sigma and Kappa Beta Gamma on campus.
The sisters of Delta Eta Iota are always ready and eager to help someone in need, even at the last minute.
