Organization Facts

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. Today, Delta Gamma's membership has grown to more than 142,000 women worldwide with 147 collegiate chapters and more than 250 alumnae groups across the United States and Canada. In 1936, Delta Gamma adopted Service for Sight as its philanthropy. In 1951, The Delta Gamma Foundation was incorporated and has since provided more than $3.15 million to the four Delta Gamma sponsored schools for visually impaired children and 51 other organizations with similar missions.

Chapter Facts

The Eta Delta Chapter of Delta Gamma was founded at the University of North Florida in 1999. Since that time Eta Delta has created strong roots within the UNF and Jacksonville community. Our members are involved in multiple organizations on campus including Student Government, Swoop Squad, Order of the Omega and many others. Eta Delta also works frequently with the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, volunteering and hosting events such as the annual Valentine's Day party. Our chapter prides itself in capturing the true essence of what it means to be a Delta Gamma. By fostering high ideals of friendship, promoting educational and cultural interests, creating a true sense of social responsibility and establishing the finest qualities of character, Delta Gamma has enriched the lives of its members and instilled in them a respect for the enduring values gained from the fraternity.
