Delta Gamma was founded in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi by
three young women who were unable to go home during a Christmas holiday.
Together they formed a club built on a foundation of fostering high ideals of
friendship, promoting educational and cultural interests, a true sense of
social responsibility and developing the best qualities of character that now
has more than 230,000 initiated members. Today, Delta Gamma’s membership
continues to grow with 152 collegiate chapters and more than 250 alumnae groups
across the United States and Canada. Service for Sight, Delta Gamma
Fraternity’s Philanthropy, has been at the heart of the Delta Gamma mission
