The ladies of Delta Nu from around the world returned to campus for Alumni Weekend to celebrate Dickinson and the Delta Nu sisterhood. Sisters from the founding class to current sister all came together to celebrate their bond.
A letter with updates was recently sent to the Delta Nu Alumnae from Barb Bailey, chair of the DNAAB. If you did not receive a copy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we are happy to send it to you.
Also, don’t forget….

Other news includes our first official DN function on Alumni Weekend, June 10th & 11th! On Friday night at 9 PM, all DN sisters are invited to a very special 45th birthday celebration! Registration for Alumni Weekend including our Friday night DN event is now available on the college website. If you are planning to attend Alumni Weekend, PLEASE sign up for the DN event! Even if you were not planning to come to Alumni Weekend but want to see old DN friends, come to our very first DN alumnae party! It will surely be memorable!
All money raised will be managed by the Delta Nu Alumnae Advisory Board (DNAAB), a recently formed group of Delta Nu alumnae who have worked hard to advise and support the sisterhood and their officers. The purpose of this fundraiser is to build a DNAAB fund that will help support the active sisters. The proceeds from each t-shirt sold will help build a DNAAB fund that will be used ONLY to help the active sisters. This might include, but not be limited to, funding dues for sisters not able to pay, helping to pay for the insurance coverage required by the college, or helping with other DN expenses.
SALES END MAY 6
The Delta Nu Alumnae Advisory Board (“DNAAB”) was established in 2015 as a permanent Alumnae Advisory Board to help support the student leadership of Delta Nu in various aspects of the organization’s management. Delta Nu is a local sorority and not affiliated with a national organization, thus DNAAB is providing the guidance, direction and oversight necessary for Delta Nu to continue to grow and contribute as a valuable member of the Dickinson community. Board members consist of a team of Delta Nu alumnae who train and advise on recruitment, new member education, officer transition and leadership and risk management among other roles and responsibilities. The current board and committee chairs are comprised of several founding members, former presidents and other former executive officers as well as alumnae representing each decade since its birth in 1971. DNAAB has regular and frequent participation and interaction with the chapter and also with the Delta Nu on-campus advisor, and meets with College administration at least twice each academic year. Current DNAAB chair is Barb Pim Bailey, ’73, Delta Nu’s first elected president.
