Alpha Gamma Delta

The Gamma Alpha Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta was installed at the University of Georgia in 1923 and is the third oldest sorority on campus. After over one hundred on campus, the ladies of Gamma Alpha continually strive to surpass the principles of sisterhood set forth by their eleven founding members through service, scholarship, and involvement.

The Alpha Gamma Delta foundation, which benefits diabetes research is Alpha Gam’s national philanthropy. Through the foundation, large grants are made annually to organizations and individuals for diabetes research, treatment, and education. Alpha Gam hosts an annual philanthropy event each fall called Mr. Milledge, in which members of fraternities compete in a male beauty pageant. Alpha Gamma Delta hosts another philanthropy event, titled “Alpha Gam Jam,” on the front lawn with a band and lawn games. The money raised at each event is donated to the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.

Not only do the sisters of Alpha Gam give back to the Foundation, but they also give back to the local community. The chapter supports Talmage Terrace and Lanier Gardens senior living Not only do the sisters of Alpha Gam give back to the Foundation, but they also give back to the local community. Alpha Gams also take pride in supporting other Greek and campus philanthropy events. Across campus, you can find an Alpha Gam in nearly every organization. Sisters participate in the UGA Honors program, Order of Omega, honors societies, and are represented as college ambassadors. Leadership comes naturally to Alpha Gams. Sisters are active in several pre-professional organizations, Young Life, Wesley Foundation, UGA Miracle, Relay for Life and UGA HEROs. Sisters are also involved with the UGA Dance Company, Club Field Hockey, the UGA Equestrian Team, Sports Medicine, and Dance Dawgs. Many of the sisters also have participated in Study Abroad programs to places all over the world including Australia, South Africa, China, New Zealand, and Spain.

Alpha Gamma Delta holds a special place in each sister’s heart and looks forward to sharing that experience with you during recruitment. From themed social events to sisterhood parties to formal dances, there is never a dull moment. Alpha Gamma Delta welcomes you to the University of Georgia and looks forward to meeting you during Recruitment this year!
