March 6, 2012 Executive Director
Alpha Gamma Delta is pleased to announce we will be colonizing at Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia). Colonization activities will begin in spring 2013.
"Villanova is a perfect place to cultivate a new Alpha Gamma Delta colony," said Stephannie Sack Bailey, Executive Director. "The women on this campus make ideal Alpha Gamma Delta women because of the values already instilled by the campus. I can't wait to see this chapter grow and reach its full potential!"
With vigorous academic standards rooted in liberal arts, Villanova University is a private Catholic university comprised of more than 6,000 full-time undergraduate students. The Villanova community helps students grow intellectually, professionally and spiritually and challenges them to reach their full potential.
"The Villanova University Panhellenic Community is thrilled to welcome Alpha Gamma Delta as the newest member of our family," said Phil O'Neill, Assistant Director for Fraternity and Sorority Life at Villanova. "Their commitment to Live with Purpose provides us with an amazing opportunity to reinforce the Augustinian values upon which Villanova was founded. We are extremely excited about the partnership."
Founded in 1904 at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York, Alpha Gamma Delta is a leading women's fraternity dedicated to excellence in education and leadership. One of the first fraternities to establish a philanthropy, Alpha Gamma Delta internationally supports diabetes awareness and education. Guided by our values, ideals and traditions, Alpha Gamma Delta is purposefully revolutionizing the membership experience with a leading-edge member education program, a unique partnership with The Leadership Institute-Women with Purpose and an emphasis on alumnae cultivation and training. Collectively, Alpha Gamma Deltas are inspiring one another to Live with Purpose.
