Hello! My name is Katie Andersen, and I am the Collegiate Chapter President of Delta Delta Delta—Kappa Chapter at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. I am thrilled that you have decided to give our website a visit. I hope it shows you a glimpse of what the Tri Delta women of our chapter embody and represent. On behalf of all of my sisters, I would like to welcome you to the site and tell you just how excited we are that you are looking into us!
Tri Delta was founded in 1888 at Boston University and is proudly recognized as one of the first national women’s fraternities in the United States. Nationally, Tri Delta engages its members in a lifetime of membership through enduring friendship, timeless values, and innovative opportunities for growth and development. Overall, Tri Delta provides members with the resources to become the absolute best, most confident versions of themselves during their time as members at the collegiate level and in the future.
As the President of Kappa Chapter, I have the honor and privilege of representing a remarkable group of young, intelligent, driven women from, not only, the United States, but from four countries around the globe. These women all have such diverse interests with incredible aspirations for life after graduation and beyond, and Tri Delta is here to support each and every one of them every step of the way.
There is not one day that goes by that I am not proud of every single member of Tri Delta. Each woman strives to embody our principles of truth, self-sacrifice, and friendship in their activities in the chapter, on campus, and elsewhere. Tri Delta aims to broaden the moral and intellectual life of every woman, and the members of Kappa Chapter have shown me that this goal is always accomplished. Looking around campus, Tri Delta women are involved in honors organizations, philanthropic endeavors, studying abroad opportunities, volunteer clubs, and internships, just to name a few. These women hold an outstanding number of leadership roles in and outside of the chapter, and they continuously spread Tri Delta’s influence unto all those whom they encounter.
Reflecting on my time in Tri Delta, both as a member and as President, I cannot imagine my life, nor who I would be, without this extraordinary organization. Tri delta has instilled in me a confidence I never thought possible, and a desire to spread kindness to everyone I encounter. The bonds I have made with the women in this chapter go far deeper than friendships I have elsewhere; they inspire me to reach my potential and love myself and others unconditionally. I cannot believe my collegiate career is nearing its end, and as difficult as it may be to leave my home on the corner of 16th and R street, I know the steadfast friendships I have made will last well beyond my time here.
Delta Love and Mine,
Collegiate Chapter President
