Delta Gamma Fraternity Announces Return to the University of Miami

Columbus, Ohio [April 25, 2024] — Delta Gamma is pleased to announce the reestablishment of Beta Tau chapter at the University of Miami (UM) in Coral Gables, Florida, in spring 2025.

Delta Gamma’s Beta Tau chapter was originally installed at Miami on February 16, 1946, and closed in 2018. With sound sorority registration numbers and rising enrollment, along with supportive campus leadership, 2025 is the ideal time to successfully reestablish.

“We are thrilled to rejoin the Miami community. Our return to UM will focus on doing good. We will strive to promote educational and cultural interests within our members, to create in them a true sense of social responsibility and to develop in them the best qualities of character. We believe the Do Good Sisterhood will provide abundant opportunities for lifelong growth,” said Fraternity President Dr. Amy R. Ayres, Alpha Iota-Oklahoma.

Beta Tau most famously held the first ever Anchor Splash® in 1966, which has grown to be the biggest fundraising event for Delta Gammas all over the world, with all proceeds benefitting the Delta Gamma Foundation. Since first establishing in 1946, Beta Tau has welcomed over 1,000 women into the Delta Gamma sisterhood.

The University of Miami is one of America's top research universities located in one of the most dynamic and multicultural cities in the world. More than 19,000 students from around the world are pursuing their academic goals at the University of Miami, a vibrant and diverse community focused on teaching and learning, the discovery of new knowledge and service to the South Florida region and beyond.

Delta Gamma will join the six other National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus, including Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Delta Tau and Zeta Tau Alpha.
