Alpha Gamma Delta is an international woman's fraternity that is devoted to aiding women through their college years. Founded in 1904, Alpha Gamma Delta focuses on perfecting a woman through philanthropy, scholastics, and sisterhood. Being an Alpha Gam means not only being the best, but taking pride in being the best.
Our philanthropy is the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, which benefits diabetes. Each year Alpha Gam puts together events such as rose and raffle sales, clothing drives, and the annual Alpha Gam Bowling Jam to raise money for the fight against diabetes. Other local events that are sisters are involved in are Relay for Life, Marathon, and the Carroll County Rape Crisis Center. Many of our sisters are involved with activities on campus for example, the Student Government Association, Student Activities Council,Marathon Committee, BSU, UWG Dance Team, Leadership To Go, and numerous other organizations. We are very active in West Georgia's intramural program and Greek activities (video night and Greek week). No matter where you go, Alpha Gams can always be seen sporting their bright GREEN jerseys.
Sisterhood is a major part of being an Alpha Gam. It is more than just meetings and showing up to events; it is listening, giving advice,laughing, and most importantly, loving. The ties that bind our sisters are not around our wrists, but rather are fastened to our hearts. We plan trips and activities to enhance our life-long friendships. Most of our time is spent having sisterhood movie nights, shopping together, hanging out at parties,and spending quality time. Alpha Gams love to develop our sisterhood through socials, formals, and date night activities. Each year we host the Rosebud semi-formal, Pearl Formal, Purple Passion crush party, and countless socials, date-nights, and double crush parties!
Alpha Gamma Delta is more than letters on a shirt, a gold pin, songs, and rituals. It is tradition in excellence and lasting friendships, respecting others as well as yourself, and gaining confidence to help you take life one step at a time. Alpha Gamma Delta is not what you have become, it is what you have always been.
