We were founded in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi, by three young women who were unable to go home during a Christmas holiday. Together they formed a club that now has more than 250,000 members. Since 1873, Delta Gamma has grown into one of the largest Greek women's organizations, with collegiate chapters throughout the United States and Canada and alumnae living worldwide.
Built on a foundation of fostering high ideals of friendship, promoting educational and cultural interests, a true sense of social responsibility and developing the best qualities of character, Delta Gamma Fraternity is a women's organization with more than 250,000 initiated members.
The letters Delta and Gamma were chosen to represent "Do Good." It remains the motto of the Fraternity and a reminder each day of the promises we made to our sisterhood.
We invite you to learn about our rich history, our bonds of friendship and the values that Delta Gammas strive to live by each day.
