Thanks in largepart to the DG Founda-tion’s Chapter Giving Pro-gram, the proceeds fromSpring Fling will benefitboth the Delta GammaFoundation and DC DG’slocal philanthropy, theColumbia Lighthouse forthe Blind. I hope you willjoin us and bring friendstoo.In other news, I’m sad toreport that DC DG willbid farewell to CristinaGomez and Genefer Thornton.

 your own review. It isreally enjoyable. Now that I'm in the DG Book Club - I have so many more books to add eachmonth too!
This is a GREAT site forrunners. You can plug inany street address andthen map out your run. Itis a great way to plan arun before you get out onthe streets. It will go any- where you tell it (acrossgrass, along a broadwalk,etc) so you are not limitedto streets. It also lets yousave your runs or searchfor other runs people havemade public. It helped mea lot training for my firstmarathon but it is greatno matter what run youare trying to plan!
I am not a huge shopper -I have a lot of trouble ra-tionalizing spendingmoney on myself (I know -it is sad). BUT overstock is a way for me to get new things at a discountedprice so I don't feel guilty!There are really honestreviews and it has a hugeselection of things to buy.
This is a great website tocheck out before seeing amovie. It collects a largeamount of movie critics'reviews of a movie andthen gives is a percentagebased on the good or badratings. Instead of goingoff of one person's review (who may be old or a manor just completely differ-ent than you) this gives you a good sense of theoverall feeling for a movie.I was never a big moviereview fan before this site- but now I love it!
This is an ongoing to pro-ject in where peopleanonymously send in se-crets on handmade post-cards. Some of the secretsare shocking, some aredepressing, some arefunny, and some are dis-turbing. There is a largemix of the types of secretspeople send in but it isalways enjoyable to readthem. Frank (the person who runs the site andstarted the project) postsnew secrets every Sunday.Check it out!
This is a great place tofind new recipes! You cansearch for all types of dishes. People give re- views and you can saverecipes in a "recipe box."It is so helpful! It has al-lowed me to try so many new recipes and has neversteered me wrong.Kerry Cooney (Beta Epsi-lon) grew up in Montclair,NJ. Before starting col-lege at American Univer-sity, Kerry thought sorori-ties were not for her. Sheturned out to be very  wrong! Once a DeltaGamma, Kerry became anincredibly active member,holding an officer posi-tion every semester. Kerry served as VP Panhellenic, VP Foundation, and Di-rector of New Members.Kerry graduated a semes-ter early, but continued tostay active in her colle-giate chapter while earn-ing a Master's Degree.Kerry graduated in May 2008 from the SpecialEducation: Learning Dis-abilities program at American University. Sheis currently employed atthe Lab School of Wash-ington (a school for chil-dren with language-basedlearning disabilities) Kerry lives in the U St. area with her boyfriend Jimand their dog Derby.
I know someone has al-ready mentioned this as afavorite thing - but I alsolove this site! It is like a virtual book club. It is afun way to share thebooks you are reading with friends or to getideas of new books toread. You can rate thebooks you read and give
