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.
Hey, my name is Camryn Lopusnak, and I am so excited to welcome you to Delta Gamma at the University of Georgia! This chapter is made up of some of the most passionate, intelligent, personable, and iconic women, and it is an absolute honor to be able to serve as the President of Delta Iota for 2021!
Delta Gamma was founded in December of 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi at the Lewis School for Girls by three young women: Anna Boyd, May 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.
When I decided to rush in the Spring of 2019, I never knew Delta Gamma would impact me in the way it has. It has given home a new meaning here in Athens, and whether it be dancing in the Deeg, studying in the MLC, or just hanging out at chapter, memories in Delta Gamma are made everywhere. With constant encouragement, support, passion, and heart, our sisters truly embody what it means to be a friend, sister, leader and scholar. Our sisterhood is here to “Do Good,” and because of women like this, Delta Gamma is strong here at UGA as well as all over the country.
Here at Delta Gamma, each action is an intention, each first is a trailblazing milestone, and each member is a conscious connection.
