Alpha Lambda Chapter at University of South Carolina


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

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.
