#IamASororityWoman Campaign Comes to Campus
Delta Gamma joins initiative to debunk negative sorority stereotypes.
Christopher Newport’s Delta Gamma sorority chapter is bringing the #IAmASororityWoman campaign to campus. The goal of the initiative is to debunk negative stereotypes surrounding sorority women.
“Overall it is meant to show off Greek women and their pride for their sisterhoods, friendships, achievements and organizations,” says Erin Roosa, Delta Gamma’s vice president of foundations.
According to Roosa, sorority members are often portrayed in a negative light, which often prevents people from understanding Greek life. “It’s about leadership, philanthropy and a bond of friendship,” she says. “We want our sisters to strive to be the best versions of themselves and hold them accountable to certain standards. Being a sorority woman is about true values and surrounding yourself with women who support you and challenge you to live better. Roosa adds, “Delta Gamma here at CNU is proud to follow in the footsteps of our executive offices in fighting the negative image the popular media has given us.”
Roosa’s own statement for the campaign reads, “I am a leader. I am a philanthropist. I am a friend. I aim to live by the standards my organization has set for me and I believe in the power of my sisterhood. #IAmASororityWoman.”
