Our History 

 On May 4th, 1904 at Syracuse University, 11 women came together to create this amazing organization known as Alpha Gamma Delta.  Each of them were progressive, selfless women who contributed to the growth of Alpha Gamma Delta.  Now over 100 years later, we strive to continue the vision and purpose of that amazing sisterhood. Since the founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at 188 colleges and universities across North America and more than 160,00 women have become Alpha Gam sisters. Guided by our Purpose, Alpha Gamma Deltas are impacting our communities and contributing to the world's work just as our founders did before us.

President Welcome

President Welcome

Hello!  Welcome to the Delta Tau Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta at Chapman University!  I’d like to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to check out Alpha Gam and seeing what we’re all about!

Alpha Gamma Delta was founded in 1904 with the motto “Inspire the women, Impact the world” as the base for what the organization stood for.  As a women’s fraternity, our purpose is to foster an environment that encourages academic achievement, philanthropic work, leadership and a strong sisterhood.  We live with purpose and do our best to make the world around us a better place.

My freshman year at Chapman University is when I joined Alpha Gam and it was the best decision I ever made.  I realized early on that I had had stumbled upon something special and that I had found my home away from home.   The women in this chapter inspire me with the way they treat others, with the way they aren’t afraid to be themselves, and the way they never back down on the things they believe in.  They are my role models, my friends, my sisters.  I am lucky enough to be surrounded by strong, impactful, caring women who make me a better version of myself.  

Alpha Gamma Delta has brought so many incredible and impactful women into my life and I will always be thankful for that.  I am honored to serve as President of Delta Tau.  Please take the time to get to know us a little better and see how our sisters really do live with purpose!
