Meet Mary Carolyn Jones Our 2023 Recruitment Chair
Mary Carolyn Jones

Hi everyone! My name is Mary Carolyn Jones, and I am honored to serve Delta Gamma as vp: membership this year! I have been given the privilege to plan and execute workshops in order to better prepare the women of Delta Lambda for a successful fall recruitment. This position has already provided so many learning opportunities about myself, my sisters, and Delta Gamma as a whole, and we cannot wait for the week of formal recruitment. Myself, as well as the rest of our chapter, cannot wait to meet YOU!!!!

To incoming freshmen

I remember just two years ago, nervous about what the recruitment experience may bring me. As I look at that nervous, out-of-state girl who could count the people she knew at MSU on one hand, I am beyond proud that she chose a sisterhood that would impact her in every aspect of life for the better. I know all of the emotions that come along with the recruitment experience, but joining a sorority was the best decision I have ever made. I immediately felt love as soon as I met my sisters, and my expectations have been exceeded beyond measure. I am so glad you have chosen to go through recruitment, and I hope that you will feel comfortable in our home! We want to get to know you for who you genuinely are. Delta Gamma is a place where each person is free to be themselves- we welcome all personalities, personal goals, and interests- and can’t wait to know you and hear yours! I challenge you to go into this process with an open mind, knowing that you are free to be yourself. It is going to be an amazing week, and I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you!

To parents

I am so excited that you are supporting your daughter’s decision to go through formal recruitment. Greek life has been so influential on my college experience, and I am beyond grateful for the sisterhood I have found through Delta Gamma that will last a lifetime. Delta Gamma has given me opportunities to serve in my community, on campus, and in my friendships as a whole. I firsthand see the impact that Delta Gamma has had on my life, and I have ultimately been pushed to be a better student, leader, and friend to all.

Recruitment will be here before we know it, and I am beyond excited- I hope you all are as well! The feeling I had when I became a Delta Gamma was a feeling like no other- I hope one day you can feel the same! The women of Delta Gamma have pushed me to be the best version of myself, and are continuously doing so. I have made numerous friendships and memories that I will cherish forever, and recruitment was just the start of this journey! Be gracious with yourself and others during this hectic week- take time for yourself and be true to who you are, what you value, and what you are looking for in a sorority. The process will be exhausting and long, but the outcome is so worth it! I hope that your summer is amazing, and I cannot wait to see all of you on August 11th!

dear potential new members
Meet Anna Clare Sheehan

I am so beyond excited to meet and get to know each one of you! I am so grateful to be able to serve as vp: member education this year. This means I get to walk with you in this new season of your life in college and as a member of Delta Gamma. I get the opportunity to guide you and show you the many blessings that the Lord and Delta Gamma has provided me! During this new member process, we will have weekly meetings where we get to learn about the history and values of Delta Gamma. These are the moments you will get to know other girls around you and create lifelong friendships.

Beginning your transition into college and sorority life is an exciting time but can be overwhelming and hard. In these times, the girls here in Delta Gamma encouraged me to be myself and were always there for me. I hope to be able to do the same for you and help you have the best experience! I want to be someone you can come to anything with and be a friend to lean on. I pray that you will that you will see firsthand the impact that Delta Gamma has had on my life and so many others.

My biggest piece of advice for coming through recruitment is to trust in the Lord’s plan and be true to who you are and what you value! He is going to place you exactly where you are meant to be fully known and loved. Delta Gamma has made me feel comfortable, loved, and valued since the moment I walked through the doors. It has continued to be the biggest blessing in my life and will to be forever.

I am truly so excited to walk in this season of life with each of you! I hope to share the love of Delta Gamma and the impact that it has had on my life with you. We are going to have the best memories together!
