Beta Xi at Stephen F. Austin State University

Recommendations

A reference or recommendation is a letter of introduction a Tri Delta member provides to a collegiate chapter on behalf of a potential new member.

Please remember, membership selection is the privilege and responsibility of the collegiate chapter members. A reference or letter of recommendation does not guarantee an invitation to membership.

To write a reference, you need to be a member in good standing with the Fraternity. Tri Delta offers an online reference form that is sent directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair where the potential new member is going through recruitment. You can also download a PDF copy of the form that you can either email or print and mail directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair. To access the reference form, you must log in to www.tridelta.org.

Reference processes vary greatly by chapter. Specific questions can be answered by an alumnae chapter reference chair in the university's area or by the collegiate chapter reference chair. Locate a reference chair when you log in to My Tri Delta, go to Resources > Board & Volunteer Directories > Reference Chairs. 

Tri Delta does not require a reference letter for membership. Some chapters rely heavily on references, while others receive very few. The process will vary by chapter.

At Beta Xi, we welcome references or letters of support to serve as an introduction of the potential new member to the chapter.  Please keep in mind that membership selection is ultimately the privilege and responsibility of each collegiate chapter. A reference form, letter of recommendation or potential new member’s legacy status does not guarantee an invitation into membership.

Tri Delta offers an online reference form that is sent directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair where the potential new member is going through recruitment. You can also download a PDF copy of the form that you can either email or print and mail directly to the collegiate chapter reference chair.

If you prefer to e-mail the form, please send to hugheshm@jacks.sfasu.edu or mail to 17707 Retreat Ridge Lane Houston, TX 77095

Lastly, I am honored to serve as Reference Chair for Beta Xi this year.  I want to thank all of the alumnae members for your hard work throughout this process.  

Delta Love,

Haley Hughes, Reference Chair
