A  L e t t e r   from our  P r e s i d e n t  


Hi! My name is Mason Sieling and I am the current President of the Phi Eta Chapter at Texas Tech University. Currently, our chapter is home to over 230 women and it continues to grow each year! As Tri Deltas, we strive to live out our motto and to develop our character in every aspect of our lives – whether on campus, at home, or in the community. Our chapter is unique in that we are compromised of all types of women and although we are different, we all come together for one purpose. For me, Tri Delta is a place were I am continually reminded of the woman I want to become and am constantly encouraged by my sisters. To be able to share a sisterhood with these remarkable women is such a blessing and this experience is truly life changing. I am thankful for all the memories and friendships that I have made in Tri Delta and I look forward to all of the amazing things this chapter will accomplish in 2016!

pine trees  The pine tree is a symbol of Tri Delta’s collegiate members because it represents growth and lofty aspirations.

Single PearlThe pearl is the jewel of Tri Delta. It was chosen to symbolize the new member, because it is the one jewel that grows, developing from a tiny grain of sand into a thing of great value and beauty.

Single PansyThe pansy is Tri Delta’s flower. It is a symbol of alumnae membership and the third step in the lifetime development of Delta Delta Delta’s members.

Gold Crescent Moon and 3 StarThree golden stars, crown set with pearls, within a gold crescent of three hundred degree bearing three deltas in black enamel is the official badge of the Fraternity. Tri Delta initiates receive a Stars and Crescent Badge with her initials, the Greek letters of her chapter, and her chapter Initiation number engraved on the back. The badge belongs to Tri Delta and is lent to each member during her lifetime or as long as she remains a member.

Dolphin 2The dolphin is recognized as an additional symbol of importance as it was considered to be a good omen by the ancient Greeks. It symbolizes rebirth, friendship and leadership. In Tri Delta, the dolphin is symbolic of clear skies and smooth sailing and has special significance for Fraternity leaders.

Gold Trident 1The trident is the symbol of the first degree of Initiation. The trident and its degree of Initiation administered as the new member service until 1912. The silver trident is returned prior to Initiation into the Stars and Crescent degree. A gold trident may be worn as a badge guard.
