Delta Gamma mission

Delta Gamma offers to women a rich heritage and a continuity based on sound and tested principles of personal integrity, personal responsibility, and intellectual honesty.

Our History

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. 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 is an international women's fraternity that continues to place a strong dedication on personal values and standards, academic excellence, leadership, and service. Delta Gamma encourages each member to strive for excellence and offers the programming and support to help each member reach that commitment. Delta Gamma offers its members the experience of sharing the strong bonds of sisterhood for a lifetime. 


Zeta Epsilon chapter was founded at Santa Clara University in 1987 and has since grown to include over 170 active collegiate members.
