Fraternity Firsts


Delta Gamma is one of the oldest women’s fraternities. Members throughout the 136-year history have been trailblazers in establishing a tradition of excellence by being the:

  • first women’s fraternity to employ a full-time staff member to address the health and wellness needs of its members
  • first women’s fraternity to incorporate a foundation in 1951
  • first to build an international headquarters specifically for that purpose
  • first to have seminars and house corporations
  • first to have an archivist handling historical materials at the international headquarters
  • first to receive recognition from the American Academy of Opthalmology for Distinguished Public Service
  • first to establish challenge grants in values and ethics, through the Dorothy Garrett Martin Lectureship in Values and Ethics
