Nazli Nazemian

Director of Primary Recruitment

Dear Future PNM,

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to all of you who are considering joining our sisterhood. I am honored to serve as the Director of Primary Recruitment, and it is my goal to make your recruitment experience as enjoying and fulfilling as possible.

As you navigate through the process,  I encourage you to BE YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF. We want to get to know the real you, and not just the polished version that you might think we want to see. We value diversity and individuality, and we want to build a sisterhood that is made up of women from all different backgrounds and walks of life. I also encourage you to ask questions, don't be afraid to ask us about our experiences in Delta Gamma, or about our favorite memories in the chapter. We are passionate about our sisterhood, and are eager to share our stories with you. Above all, I want you to remember that the recruitment process is not about impressing us - it's about finding the right fit for you. We want you to join our sisterhood because you feel a genuine connection with our values and our community. So, take your time, ask questions, and trust your instincts. We can't wait to meet you and welcome you into our sisterhood!

Maddie Medina

Director of Recruitment Records

Hi! My name is Maddie Medina and I’m the Director of Recruitment Records for Delta Gamma here at UC Irvine. Going into primary recruitment, I was feeling every emotion: happy, nervous, and excited for the potential of finding my home away from home. Because of that, I would say my biggest piece of advice is go into primary recruitment with an open mind and take everything in. Even though you will be visiting multiple houses a day and having dozens of conversations, take note of the conversations that feel like you’re talking to your friends from home and feel the most comfortable with. If you’re already having these conversations in a formal setting, it will be even more natural at a meeting or a sisterhood event! But, above all, have fun! As cliché as it sounds, primary recruitment is your first introduction to UCI and the people that make it up. Today, one of my roommates is someone I met for the first time in my RC group! Not only are you building connections with individual chapters, you are building the foundation for lifelong friendships amongst individuals, regardless of their affiliation. We are so psyched to see you at Delta Gamma during primary recruitment in the fall!


Calista Bennett

Director of Continuous Recruitment & Retention

Hey future PNM!!
My name is Calista Bennett and I am the director of continuous opening bidding aka COB. it’s honestly been a full circle moment to be able to hold this position because going through COB is how I joined Delta Gamma!! When I first got to college, I was super intimidated by sorority life and didn’t go through primary recruitment. Turns out COB was the
perfect process for me!! Being in this chapter was one of the best decisions I could’ve made for college life. I was struggling to adjust to college life and Delta Gamma helped me build connections with amazing women across campus, grew my personal confidence levels, and has overall made UCI a home away from home for me. If you’re thinking about going through recruitment or have any reservations, just do it!! You will meet so many people and make life long friends. embrace every opportunity that comes your way, and I know you’ll find where you’re meant to be. i’m so excited to meet you, have fun throughout this amazing process!!
