#WHYDG

The miscellaneous stereotypes regarding Greek life, assembled from movies and TV shows, shy many college students away from getting involved. Let me confirm that these stereotypes deviate far from the truth.

From a general to specific glance, the Greek community at Boston University is composed of chapters with members who encourage and support each other through practically every aspect of their life as a college student. As a member of the Panhellenic community at BU, I see women going above and beyond each and every day for their sisters whenever needed. This means being there for each other when one of us needs a laugh, a cry, or is in desperate need of help to prepare for that upcoming Chem exam.

Delta Gamma specifically is filled with strong women who accept and love me for who I am, encourage me to reach towards my highest potential, and motivate me to step out of my comfort zone in a judgment free sisterhood. Delta Gamma is not only a place that I can call home in Boston, it is also a place where I can take risks, feel supported, constructively challenge myself as well as those around me, and most of all it is a community that I can always count on.

I feel lucky and honored to be apart of a group where each unique individual comes together to form one strong group of women. Each of us has our own passions, our own interests, and our own hobbies, yet as a unified sisterhood we share the same values. Joining Delta Gamma, as well as the Panhellenic community as a whole, is hands down the best decision I will make during my four years at BU. Being a part of an organization that encourages genuine friendship, opens up doors and opportunities, and connects me to the rest of the Boston University community as well as the outside world around me is nothing short of inspiring. I will proudly carry the values I have learned and shared with me and these friendships will truly last a lifetime.
