Summer has been an incredibly exciting time for the sisters of Canada Alpha! Despite this hiatus from regularly scheduled programming, however, Tri Delta has neither been out of site nor out of mind. Having flown to Memphis for the annual St. Jude trip and celebration, Maddie and Ellena came back with inspiration for an incredibly innovative fall philanthropy event (stay tuned for more information on this!) Meanwhile, in the company of a remarkable group of my Canadian sisters, I had the honor of attending Tri Delta’s 58th Bicentennial Convention. Together, we watched Fourth of July fireworks, sang, danced, and beamed as Arlene Chan received her Woman of Achievement Award. Though many of our sisters have been hard at work, continuing their studies into the summer or interning with some incredible companies, we have certainly played hard as well. As always seems to be the case, our house is one of travelers. While our sisters from south of the border traveled back home to Boston, California, Washington DC, and New York, many of our other sisters ventured even further from home, from India and Bali to the Netherlands and France. Canada Alpha also happens to be a chapter of music buffs, as many of our sisters attended some of the most anticipated festivals of the summer, namely Osheaga and Outside Lands. While we have been enjoying our time away from our academics, we are itching to reunite with each other in September. As recruitment season approaches, we eagerly await the opportunity to welcome some wonderful new members into our home, and share more of our activities with you.
