WELCOME TO THE
DELTA IOTA CHAPTER
"The purpose of this Fraternity shall be to foster high ideals of friendship among college women, promote their educational and cultural interests, create in them a true sense of social responsibility and develop in them high qualities of character." Consistent with our Founders' thoughts in 1873, our primary purpose is to create an environment for our members in which lasting friendships and our vows of sisterhood
emanate all aspects of our Fraternity.
Delta Gamma is more than just a collegiate experience; it is a lifetime of commitment, support and opportunity awaiting you. It marks the beginning of a relationship that will last for a lifetime."
Hi, my name is Mallory Carney and I am so honored to welcome you to Delta Gamma at the University of Georgia!
Delta Gamma was founded in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi at the Lewis School for Girls by three young women who were unable to travel home for the holidays. This was the start of an organization and sisterhood founded in service, leadership and academics. Nationally, there are more than 250,000 members, 153 collegiate chapters and over 200 alumnae groups. The Greek letters Delta and Gamma were chosen by our founders because of their intention to “Do Good.” It remains our motto to this day and is the purpose behind everything that we do.
Delta Gamma joined the Greek community at UGA in 1968 and recently celebrated 50 years in Athens in the Spring of 2018. Our chapter prides itself on true friendships, dedication to service and strong leadership. We are proud to be recognized for all of our hard work and dedication by receiving national awards for excellence in these areas.
Delta Gamma is an organization that has greatly impacted my time here at UGA and for that I am so thankful. Our sisters truly embody what it means to be a friend, sister, leader and scholar. Our sisters are so passionate in everything they do and truly have a heart for our community. We take so much pride in bringing hope and assistance to those around us. Our diverse interests and passions come together to “Do Good.” The women of Delta Gamma encourage and push me to be the best version of myself that I can be. They are always there to support one another, to share a laugh or to be a shoulder to cry on. Because of women like this Delta Gamma is strong here at UGA as well as all over the country.
