As Delta Gammas, we have a LOT to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We are grateful for our founders Mary Comfort Leonard, Eva Webb Dodd, & Anna Boyd Ellington and their vision of developing a sisterhood based on the principles of leadership, friendship, philanthropy, and academic excellence. We are thankful for all the alumnae that have blazed the trail for us and continue to support DG so that we can experience all this fraternity has to offer. We are thankful for our parents and families and the constant support, both financially and emotionally, they provide us with. We are thankful for all our advisors, VPs, and directors, for their steadfast guidance and leadership. Last but not least, we are thankful for each other. Without our sisters, our college experience (and rest of our lives) would not be the same. We hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!

This week's Way to be a DG goes out to all who made Anchor Splash possible and, of course, a special thanks to the lovely Nikki Bracken for organizing everything!
Without all the help from our very dedicated members, things wouldn't have been such a success. Thank you again to all the coaches, seniors and everyone else for lending a helping hand!

Today was Delta Gamma's annual philanthropy, Anchor Splash, benefitting the organization Service for Sight! Teams of men from the fraternities on campus joined the girls at the Mizzou Recreational Center to dress in goofy costumes and perform silly dances, as well as synchronized swimming routines. The day was filled with laughter. The DG girls had the chance to coach the men throughout the past couple weeks to ensure their dances were perfect! Winning fraternity is to be announced shortly!

On October 21st and 22nd, Delta Gamma girls celebrated Dad's Weekend and invited their dads to come visit them for a fun-filled weekend in Columbia. On Friday, DG held a casino night at the chapter house. Poker tables were set up, and both the dads and daughters enjoyed a night of delicious treats and poker games. On Saturday, the girls cheered on the Tigers with their dads as Mizzou took on Oklahoma State in a gripping football game. The weekend was a huge success, and we cannot wait to invite our dads back next fall!
