Delta Gamma Heritage
The heritage of Delta Gamma is
rich. Members can take pride in the amazing accomplishments of the
women before them and the forethought they had in forging the way to
Delta Gamma's primary purpose is to create an
environment for its members in which lasting friendships are
established and in which members find the processes, the experiences
and the disciplines which will stimulate clear thought. Its aim is
to foster an atmosphere in which women will develop a deeper love
and consideration for mankind, a more profound understanding of the
purpose of life, and a basic wisdom upon which to build their lives.
This purpose is accomplished
through planned collegiate and alumnae programs. These programs
provide intellectual motivation, the opportunity for graciousness in
daily living, and community awareness which enrich the lives of
members and instill in them a respect for the enduring values to be
gained from the Fraternity.
