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.
Hello and Go Dawgs!! My name is Nicole Arendt, and I am currently serving as President for the Delta Iota chapter of Delta Gamma. I am so excited for you to explore our website and get a glimpse into what makes our chapter so special to us. When I joined Delta Gamma as a freshman, I had no idea the impact that it would have on my life. Through our chapter I have grown as an individual, friend, and leader. The people that Delta Gamma has brought me in my time at UGA has made me lifelong friends and an amazing support system. I am blessed to be surrounded by women that support each other and push each other to be the best versions of themselves.
Delta Gamma was founded in December of 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi at the Lewis School for Girls by three young women: Anna Boyd, Mary Comfort, and Eva Webb. This was the start of an organization and sisterhood founded in service, leadership and academics. With over 250,000 members, 153 collegiate chapters and over 200 alumnae groups, the founding movement to create a safe, empowering, and inclusive community for women on collegiate campuses grows every year. The Greek letters Delta and Gamma were chosen for a reason - to stand for “Do Good.” It remains our motto to this day, as we have become the Do Good Sisterhood.
In 1968, Delta Gamma joined the Greek community at UGA and celebrated 50 years in Athens in the Spring of 2018. Our chapter prides itself on true sisterhood, dedication to service and leadership, and our highest ideals of friendship and social responsibility. We are proud to be recognized for all of our hard work and dedication by receiving national awards for these areas, including the Patricia Peterson Daniel Award for Chapter Excellence and the Highest Number of Service Hours of All Delta Gamma Chapters.
Here at Delta Gamma, each action is an intention, each first is a trailblazing milestone, and each member is a conscious connection. Words cannot describe how much Delta Gamma means to me! I hope looking through our website you can start to see what makes our chapter so unique!!
