Delta Gamma has been on American University’s campus since 1936 and represents a sisterhood that fosters friendship, thrives on individuality, promotes leadership, encourages academics, and prioritizes service.
Women who join Delta Gamma at American University recognize the value of being a part of something greater than themselves. New members are warmly welcomed into an unwavering support system throughout their college years. Graduates are thankful to DG for introducing them to their personal cheerleaders, best friends, and for ultimately allowing them to find their most authentic selves in college.
Delta Gammas understand that a sorority can have a different meaning for every individual- thus we support all our sister's endeavors inside and outside of Greek life. At the end of the day we work hard, we play hard, and we are committed to our saying "do good"- both on campus and in the greater Washington, D.C. community.
Delta Gamma Fraternity is one of the few Greek organizations that started its own philanthropy, Service for Sight. Service for Sight started when a blind Delta Gamma sister, Ruth Billow, from the University of Akron, petitioned for fellow DG sisters to establish aiding the blind as the heart of Delta Gamma's mission. The ability to see affects every individual, and Delta Gammas express their passion for this noble cause by volunteering, spreading awareness, and fundraising for Service for Sight.
Service for Sight supports children and adults who are visually impaired and promotes sight preservation. Our philanthropy also supports military veterans who are blind or visually impaired through our Joining Forces program as well as the elderly in our Golden Anchor program.
As VP Foundation I am working with the Muhammad Ali Center
to diversify our service opportunities and expand our fundraising
network. We are looking forward to holding events open to all
of FSL this semester! We are also thrilled to hear that our
partnership has inspired other chapters nationally to partner
with the Muhammad Ali Center! Our partnership with the
Center is important to us and will continue for years to come
and we are all so excited!

message from our president
It is with gratitude and humility that I serve as
chapter president for Delta Gamma at American
University. What drew me to Delta Gamma was
everyone’s passion to live out our motto: Do
Good. Besides serving our philanthropy, Service
for Sight, our members research cures to cancer,
work on Capitol Hill, distribute COVID-19
vaccines, and are genuinely kind women. Our
chapter encourages women to be the best
versions of themselves. I can confidently say that
I am a better person because of my
membership in Delta Gamma.
Delta Gamma also increased my confidence in
myself. My sisters are my biggest hype women!
Constantly having women tell me that I’m
amazing and capable has caused me to believe it myself. They’ve encouraged me to apply for job, internship, and leadership opportunities when I didn’t feel like I could- including being president of a sorority!
Delta Gamma membership lasts a lifetime. It has already given me so much in just the two years I’ve been a member. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Nicole Adams, President
Our chapter is excited and humbled to announce our partnership with the Muhammad Ali Center, a social justice organization known for their fierce advocacy, dedication to service, and celebration of the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali.
With the help of the Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky, we are developing a program that focuses on racial justice, identities of privilege and oppression, positive social change, and building inclusive and equitable communities. Through workshops, active dialogue, and policy creation, we are working to become actively anti-racist. We have allocated a portion of our chapter operating budget to implement this program, and look forward to finding more meaningful ways to support the Muhammad Ali Center and utilize them as a resource throughout the course of our partnership and beyond.
We hope to use this new opportunity as a pilot program to continuously evolve our chapter to Do Better-- we are also excited to announce that this program has now spread to six other chapters of Delta Gamma. The Beta Epsilon chapter has the utmost respect and gratitude for the Muhammad Ali Center for their dedication to equity and social justice, and for their commitment to guiding us as we reform our chapter for years to come. Doing Good means Doing Better and we are committed, ready, and determined to reform Beta Epsilon into an organization that former and current members are proud to be a part of.
