Delta Gamma (ΔΓ) was founded in Oxford, Mississippi in 1873 and has become an international fraternity based on the motto, "Do Good." Members work to live this motto in daily life. Its primary purpose is to foster high ideals of friendship, promote educational and cultural interests, create a true sense of social responsibility, and develop the finest qualities of character. Friendships with members last a lifetime!
The Zeta Alpha chapter of Delta Gamma is proud to have over one hundred girls here at Villanova to call sisters. Voted Chapter of the Year in 2011, we are only growing stronger as a sorority and are proud to represent Delta Gamma on campus and beyond!
Delta Gamma’s philanthropy is to prevent blindness before it begins and to aid those for whom blindness already affects. In the last 55 years, Delta Gamma has funded schools for children with visual impairments or blindness and has collaborated with 150 other organizations that share the same mission. Delta Gamma has also funded genetic research, low vision adaptive devices, tapes, and Braille books. For more information on Delta Gamma’s philanthropic purpose click here.
From July 2012 to June 2013 alone, Zeta Alpha has raised over $4,529 and has spent over 1,324 hours serving and volunteering. This fall, at our two most recent events, Capture the Anchor and a fundraiser at Chipotle, we were able to raise $3,022.84 for Service for Sight!
