"WHO ARE WE? I SAID A-DG!"
Delta Gamma was founded by Anna Boyd Ellington, Eva Webb Dodd and Mary Comfort Leonard in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi, at the Lewis School for Girls near the University of Mississippi. The Founders sought to maintain high ideals and standards and to encourage intellectual growth and service in order to exemplify college women at their best.
As one of the oldest and largest women’s fraternities in the nation, Delta Gamma has evolved into a strong network of intelligent, charismatic, and talented women. Our chapter consists of an amazing group of young women who are involved in and around campus, including UCLA student government, Bruin athletics, community service, and much more! With countless things to do and your best friends by your side, Delta Gamma is truly a home away from home. From roasting s’mores over a bonfire at the beach, to cheering on the Bruins at a football game, or getting ready for our Anchor Ball formal, the Delta Gamma experience forms friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
Delta Gamma's membership has grown to more than 142,000 women worldwide with 146 collegiate chapters and more than 250 alumnae groups across the United States and Canada.
