Celebrating Our Sisters’ Academic Achivements

On Sunday we held our semiannual Scholastics Dinner where we celebrate the academic achievements of the past semester, honor our academic advisors and honorary members, and acknowledge this year’s scholarship recipient.

An alumni, Mary Buschette, spoke to the chapter about Growth, Graciousness, Gratitude, and Passions. She also gave our actives a history lesson on the accomplishments of Norman Borlaug. We were very lucky and honored that she was able to pass along her wisdom.

All members, advisor Sandra Ducharme, honorary members, speaker and alumni Mary Buschette, and academic advisor Melissa Palmer.

Academics are an integral part of our sisterhood, so we always love honoring our members for a job well done. We appreciate everyone who came to help us celebrate our achievements.

Congratulations to New Member Abby R.

We are so proud of our New Member Abby Rohweder who ran in the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon this past weekend. She finished the race in 5 hours, 22 minutes, and 8 seconds. She ran an average mile of 12 minutes and 18 seconds. LDPhi is so lucky to have such an amazing New Member. We can’t wait to see what she does in the future.

Homecoming 2018

This past week our active members have had a blast getting to know the members of Theta Chi, Phi Mu, and Delta Kappa Epsilon in our pairing, “Fratatouille.” We participated in a variety of events to celebrate Greek Life and Gopher Pride.

On Monday and Tuesday, the pairing met at DKE to create our pomping masterpiece of Goldy in a Chef hat as our tribute to the pairing name and gopher spirit.

Before the Plunge!

On Wednesday Lambda Delta Phi raised $705 for the 2018 Gopher Plunge to benefit Special Olympics. Active members Mariella, Amanda T, Kari, Taylor, and Hannah all braved the cold along with other members from the “Fratatouille” team.  The entire event raised $12,951.

The main events concluded on Thursday with LipSync. Active members Sami and Megan represented LDPhi on the stage. We are so proud of all the hard work they’ve put into preparing their routine.

The final event will be on Saturday with us cheering on Gopher Football game against Iowa. We are so honored to be a part of this university and represent Gopher spirit. 2018 Homecoming was a great time and we can’t wait for Homecoming 2019!
