Delta Gamma

Chapter History

Delta Gamma has been on American University's campus since 1936 and represents a sisterhood that fosters friendship, thrives on individuality, promotes leadership, encourages academics, and prioritizes service.

Women who join Delta Gamma at American University recognize the value of being a part of something greater than themselves. New members are warmly welcomed into an unexplainable support system throughout their college years. Graduates are thankful to DG for introducing them to their support system, personal cheerleaders, best friends, and for ultimately allowing them to find their most authentic selves in college. Delta Gammas understand that a sorority can have a different meaning for every individual thus we support all our sisters endeavors inside and outside of Greek life.

At the end of the day we work hard, we play hard and we are committed to our saying, “do good,” both on campus and in the greater Washington, DC community.

Our Philanthropy: Delta Gamma Fraternity is one of the few Greek organizations that started it’s own philanthropy, Service for Sight.  Service for Sight, supports children and adults who are visually impaired and promotes sight preservation. Our philanthropy also supports military veterans who are blind or visually impaired through our Joining Forces program. Service for Sight started when a Delta Gamma sister Ruth Billow from the University of Akron, was blind and petitioned her fellow DG sisters to establish aiding the blind as the heart of Delta Gamma’s mission. The ability to see affects every individual, and Delta Gammas express their passion for this noble cause by volunteering, spreading awareness, and fundraising for Service for Sight.

Our chapter was 1 of 20 chapters chosen across the country to annually host a renowned speaker at American University for all students to attend. This is an incredible honor for our chapter, and we are so excited to create this legacy at AU. (Delta Gamma at Duke University was another chapter chosen and brought in Maya Angelou!)
