In the last couple months, over 300 women in southern California have taken up the opportunity of being trailblazers and pioneers just like our Founders.
- Delta Eta Chapter at San Diego State University was recolonized early in October.
- Delta Alpha Chapter at the University of Southern California was recolonized in mid-October.
- Delta Epsilon Chapter at the University of California, Los Angeles was recolonized last week.
Their installations will occur early next semester.
These colonies present a unique
opportunity because not only are these women forging a new path for Alpha Gamma
Delta on their campuses, they each have the tradition, history and legacy of
joining a chapter that was first founded long before.
Alpha Gamma Delta originally joined the USC and UCLA communities in mid-1920's and the San Diego State community in the 40's. Reestablishing these three chapters has been a long time in the making and marks a celebration for the new members, the alumnae of each chapter and for the Fraternity as a whole.
The fall has inspired excitement
for more than just our newest members at each campus. Approximately 50
Volunteer Service Team and International Headquarters staff members, both near
and far, joined together to execute the events, nearly 500 alumnae signed up to
be paired as pearl sisters with our newest colony members, and over 2400
alumnae are seeing their initiating chapters thriving again at their alma
These chapters have long been a part of our organization's history, and we have waited over 30 years to have students actively wear the Alpha Gamma Delta letters throughout campus once again.
Thank you to everyone who has
helped to make these recolonizations such a success, and please join us in welcoming the newest members of Alpha Gamma Delta!
