Motto: "Do Good"
In February of 2010, Delta Gamma dropped anchor in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. Today, Delta Gamma is an international women’s fraternity that continues to place a strong dedication on personal values and standards, academic excellence, leadership and service. Delta Gamma encourages each member to strive for excellence and offers the programming and support to help each member reach that commitment.
Our philanthropy is Service for Sight. The Delta Gamma Foundation has given over $2,800,000 in Service for Sight grants to organizations and schools that share the Foundation’s mission: to promote sight preservation and assistance to children and adults who are blind or visually impaired. Our annual philanthropic event, Anchor splash, has become a tradition on the College of Charleston campus stemming from its inaugural year in 2011. Anchor Splash is a campus-wide competition, engaging members of the Greek Community and College of Charleston students in a full week of activities. This week of events not only strengthens our campus community, but it also gives our chapter the opportunity to educate others about our philanthropy.
Academic excellence is a top priority for the sisters of the Eta Sigma chapter of Delta Gamma. From study nights with snacks during final exams, to recognizing academic achievements by rewarding members with Starbucks gift cards who get five A’s, our sisters are constantly encouraging one another to be the best we can be. Delta Gamma also offers over $250,000 in scholarships and fellowships each year!
There are always fun events to do with your sisters. Every fall we have our formal with a live band at a unique venue and every spring we host our semi-formal, which features a DJ. Chapter retreat is also an event that our sisters look forward to every year. In 2013, we stayed overnight at the Tides hotel in Folly Beach and in 2014 we went to Carowinds Amusement Park in Charlotte, NC. 2 years ago we went to James Island County Park for a full day of teamwork and fun on their ropes course. From sisterhood events like ice-skating and spinning classes, to movie nights at the house; our members always have the opportunity to enjoy sisterhood events together.
Delta Gamma is not just a sorority to those who are members; it is a sisterhood, a bond, and a home. When you join Delta Gamma, you really do find your home away from home. The unique joys of sisterhood found in Delta Gamma membership are boundless. Finding your big sister, studying together, living together, having someone to share your worries and your dreams are treasured moments. Women with the same goals and ideals create a sisterhood of mutual respect. This bond of friendship beginning in college will last a lifetime. We hope that you will find what anchors you in the amazing sisterhood of Delta Gamma.
