Sisterhood Activities:
Delta Delta Delta deeply values its sisterhood. The purpose emphasizes the development of a stronger more womanly character, and we feel that in doing so the support and interaction with sisters is vital. The friends that you meet upon entering Tri Delta will soon become your sisters. The construction of a bond of sisterhood is emphasized through chapter activities. Such activities include "Delta's Only" nights, these nights chapter members set aside time to enjoy each other’s company through group activities. Such activities include movie watching, cookie decorating, bowling, sister gift exchange, and sleepovers in the recreation room. Later in chapter life, there are activities set aside to honor accomplishments of members and to celebrate life events. For example, at the end of a member’s senior year, the chapter gathers for a Pansy brunch to reflect on the members’ life in the chapter and send them off with good wishes.

Academics/Scholarship Activities:
Delta Delta Delta strives to obtain the utmost in academics. The academic program is designed to emphasize group study, in which members are able to use each other as resources. However, we do understand the importance of individual study Tri Delta has a study table program for individuals that encourages studying throughout the semester. We also have a Scholarship dinner to acknowledge all the Tri Deltas with outstanding grades. Opportunities for scholarships are available through our local chapter and national organization. This is not true the Sarah Ida Shaw is an award not a scholarship.

Philanthropic/Community Service Projects:
The national philanthropy for Delta Delta Delta is Children's Cancer Charities. Funds are raised for St. Jude through donations given during an annual teeter-totter-a-thon, where members of the chapter take turns teeter-tottering in down town Moscow for 48 hours. The chapter also raises money for the St. Jude Children’s Research hospital through Sincerely Yours. The event is a letter writing sisterhood where all members write letters to raise money. We also raise money through trick-or-treating for change in Moscow on Halloween. Everyone dresses up in costumes and trick-or-treats in the community. The chapter also coordinates the “Big Hitter’s League”, a softball tournament between campus fraternities and sororities. The proceeds are then given to the St. Jude foundation. Nationally Tri Delta was involved in 10 in 10 which were supposed to raise 10 million dollars in 10 years for St. Jude. After succeeding in 4 years Delta Delta Delta is now pledging to make 15 million dollars in 5 years.  Other donations have been given to Alternatives to Violence on the Palouse, individuals needing assistance receiving medical procedures, and other charitable individuals and organizations. In addition, the chapter is involved in various philanthropic events in the Moscow and Greek community, such as local food and clothing banks, crossing guard, and mentoring programs. Members are encouraged to go above and beyond planned activities, taking it upon themselves to go out into the community and perform needed services.

Social/Campus Activities:
Members of Delta Delta Delta have no problem looking for fun. Our goal each year is to interact with every living group on campus, which keeps us busy with tie exchanges, formal balls, t-shirt dances, bowling, Sweethearts Dinner, a gingerbread house contest, pumpkin carving and more. Social events are a great way for us to celebrate our sisterhood and spend time with other members of the UI community.
