A Letter from the President

Welcome to the Beta Eta chapter of Delta Gamma at the University of Texas - I am so glad you are here! I am honored to serve as the President of this chapter and the home I have found here and I am overjoyed to give back to the women that have shown me what it means to be a friend in every sense of the word. DG's don't fit a certain "mold" - DG's are loving, motivating, ambitious, funny, kind, accepting, empathetic, bold, and they are women you not only look up to but they are on your side - there isn't a right way to be a DG if you are being yourself. DG has grown slowly and stubbornly to mean more to me than I thought it ever would and I am glad to be a leader and spokeswoman for this chapter that has given me so much. 

DG has given me the best memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life from my freshman year that made me greatful to have support system through a tough transition amidst a pandemic that I found in my DG family that still has an active group chat many travels, jobs, cities, and one wedding later with eight generations of DG women that I aspire to be like and have taught me to be passionate and to find the humor in any situation. To my Sophomore year living with the first two girls I had met in my member class and that always made me feel heard that turned into my best friends. To Junior year living in the DG house where generations of Beta Etas have lived before me I felt a greater connection to our sisterhood and I learned what it really meant to have a group of people be able bring you comfort.  It was in our house on Rio Grande that I felt like I had made friends that would last a lifetime and I am sure many others that have lived there before me have found the same.  From traveling across continents, countless Longhorn sporting events, late night drives, concerts, pool days at the house - there is fun and love in anything when I am with these women. 

Going through recruitment, I sought women that I knew would push me out of my comfort zone and invest in me in every aspect. Ever since Bid Day in 2020 I have felt that DG is rooting for me, celebrating with me, and pushing me to constantly be growing. Everything that has happened since I chose to be a DG has reaffirmed that decision everyday and I am so thankful for the people that I chose to surround myself with during my time at the University of Texas. 

I know that I cannot speak for every DG's time at Beta Eta but I see the love that our members have for the women around them and for DG - nothing brings me more joy as I get to see women navigate through their time at UT with DG's by their side with unwavering support. 

DG is a great place to call home and whether you are a young woman considering a Greek like at UT, one of our alumni checking in with the happenings of Beta Eta, or a friend or family of one of our beloved members. I am greatful that you are here and I hope that you can see just how special our chapter is and all of the woman within. 

Hook 'Em, 
Gracie Quin
