Erin Steinkamp

MEET Erin!


What's your major?

Architecture with two minors, one in construction management and the other in architecture history.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

Honestly, my home will always be New Orleans, but I can see myself also living in Paris, Rome, or Australia because I love to experience new places and cultures. Hopefully I am fortunate enough to travel to all of these places someday.

What is your dream job?

I eventually want to become an architect. I want to be able to design spaces for people to enjoy, love, and make memories in. I like to problem solve and figure out creative ways to tackle challenges that come my way, and this is a big part of being a designer.

What's your favorite television show/series?

Grey's Anatomy

Favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge?

Southfin Poke

What's your favorite Delta Gamma event?

Paint Your Date

What was your DG aha moment when you went through recruitment?

When I went through recruitment, DG continued to stand out to me at each party. When I found myself comparing sororities, DG was always exceeding my expectations, and each time I went back I had a more positive experience. I felt as though I did not have to try when I was talking to DGs; the conversations seamlessly flowed.

What's your favorite part about your position?

Being VP: Member Education is such a privilege because I get to teach our chapter about why we are apart of such an amazing organization, and I can get to know many people during this process. As I have learned from my previous position, connecting to our new members is a very rewarding experience, and there is nothing else like it.

Best piece of advice for a PM going through recruitment?

Do not compare your experience to anyone else's. Think about a place that you can see yourself in past recruitment week. If you can picture yourself with a group of girls on your best and worst days, then you have found your new home.

If you could pick one word to describe your Delta Gamma sisters, what would it be and why?

Consistent - my sisters are people that I can count on. This consistency between the girls is what drew me to choosing DG.

Favorite social media outlet?

Instagram... check me out @erinsteiny

What's your favorite class so far at LSU?

My favorite class has to be my architecture studios class. I have to take 10 of these and they are definitely my most challenging class. My studio classes have pushed me to my breaking points, but has allowed me to exceed boundaries that I did not know were even possible. 

What's one thing you want to do before you graduate?

I want to travel abroad for a semester!
