My name is Olivia Campbell and I am the President of Delta Gamma at The University of Texas at Austin! I am a junior studying Business Marketing. I was born in upstate New York, but I grew up in Humble, Texas. I am so incredibly excited to be leading this chapter! With a chapter of over 260 women, we are diverse in our interests, experiences, and goals, but sisterhood is at the center of it all for us. The girls in this chapter are not only my best friends, but my role models, mentors, and confidants!
Delta Gamma’s national philanthropy is Service for Sight. The UT chapter is lucky enough to get to work with Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, located about 10 minutes from our house. Pre-COVID, once a month the students came to our house and we hosted parties with various themes for the students there. This year, we’ve worked really hard to serve in creative, virtual ways!
Additionally, our chapter is the only Panhellenic organization that gives back to the UT campus with a bi-annual lectureship series. In 2019, we hosted Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle and in 2017, we hosted Olympian Shawn Johnson! In previous years we have hosted Mia Hamm, Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, and Collins Tuohy, adopted sister to Michael Oher. In order to put on this event, we donate to the university each semester with the fundraising from Dessert with DG, one of my personal favorite fundraising events!
Dedicated to our studies, our chapter has consistently maintained one of the highest Grade Point Averages out of all the Panhellenic sororities at The University of Texas. The Beta Eta chapter is academically diverse with majors ranging from biomedical engineering to radio-television and film. Many members are in honors programs, including Plan II, Liberal Arts, Business, and Natural Sciences Honors. I am so proud to call these intelligent women my sisters!
Delta Gamma has been on a mission this past year to create the idea of social responsibility within our chapter. Our chapter is aware of the cultural changes that need to happen on campus and is doing everything we can to encourage our members to join these campaigns.
If this is your first time to the Delta Gamma website, I encourage you to explore and learn more about this chapter! If you've been here before, welcome back!
I hope that you are able to find everything you need here. If I can help answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email can be found on the "Officers" page.
