On Christmas Eve in 1873, three ambitious young women in Oxford, Mississippi founded Delta Gamma with the goal of bringing together the highest standard of women to form strong bonds of sisterhood and to foster intellectual growth and service. Today Delta Gamma boasts 147 collegiate chapters and 190,000 members and continues to uphold these high standards. The Delta Iota chapter joined UGA’s Greek community in 1968. Our chapter prides itself on a strong and true sisterhood and excellence in academics, leadership, service, and social endeavors. We are proud to continually receive national awards for excellence.
DGs are proud to be actively involved on campus. Delta Gamma is represented on Varsity Cheerleading as well as club sports including cheer, equestrian, swim, and volleyball. DGs can also be found in the UGA Honors Program, Georgia Recruitment Team, Hoop Girls, Diamond Darlings, Student Government Association, University Judiciary, Arch Society, Order of Omega, Greek Ambassadors, Tate Society, Dawg Camp, Wesley Foundation, and many more.
We live and serve by our motto, “Do Good.” Our annual philanthropy event is Low Country Boil, a dinner on our lawn which raises money for Delta Gamma’s national philanthropy, Service for Sight, which benefits the blind and visually impaired. We are also proud to partner with\ Prevent Blindness Georgia and we have several sisters who train dogs for the Guide Dog Foundation. DGs are also very involved in and hold leadership positions in other philanthropies including UGA Miracle, UGA Heros, Relay for Life, Special Olympics, Autism UGA, and Habitat for Humanity.
The sisters of Delta Gamma can’t wait to welcome you to UGA and share our sisterhood with you during recruitment!
