Member Attends UIFI Conference

Summer is here but Mu Chapter members are still as busy as can be. Keep checking the blog all summer long to learn about some of the exciting activities members are participating in.

May 30-June 4th Amanda Klohmann (07') had the opportunity to travel to Indiana University to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) and represent our chapter of Delta Gamma. UIFI offers participants the opportunity to explore, define, and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their fraternity or sorority, and grow to expect values based action from themselves and those they lead all while meeting with leaders from several other fraternities and sororities. Throughout the 5 day camp, students create personal plans to bring back to their chapters in hopes of improving the way members view their involvement and commitment to living ritual in everyday life. Amanda is excited to be able to share what she learned with all the other chapter members once she returns to school this fall and plans to host a workshop for the chapter in order to allow them to participate in some of the great activities and discussions she was part of while at UIFI. Also, while at UIFI Amanda had the opportunity to meet Delta Gamma's from across the country. The group of girls were able to participate in a ritual together, exchange fun skit and song ideas, visit the IU Delta Gamma house and also share their similar experiences of sisterhood. The girls all even planned to see each other at convention next year. A big thanks to Delta Gamma nationals who allowed Amanda and the other members of Delta Gamma from across the country to be able to participate in the conference with a Leveraging Leaders Scholarship!
