The sponsor program, also be known as the Big Sister/Little Sister program within many sororities is a very special component of the New Member period. Each New Member is selected a Big sister, who acts as a mentor through her Tri Delta experience and plays a special role in her Initiation into the Fraternity. We like to play a guessing game, leaving Little sisters clues about their Big sisters for 1 or 2 weeks before revealing the pairings at a Sponsor Reveal event (an example of which is posted below). Littles always have a great time trying to piece together the mystery! With each new Big/Little pairing, incoming members are welcomed into a long family line within the chapter of several generations of Bigs and Littles!
A relationship between a Big and Little pairing can never be compared to another, as each has its own unique connections and ways of showing support.
Every New Member is matched with a sponsor, she will be a more senior sister who is selected based off of compatibility. The sponsor's role is to introduce and guide the New Member through her collegiate life in the Fraternity. She leads by example and is someone you can look up to and confide in!
Our favourite Big/Little pair - Shirlmaine and Julie!
