WELCOME TO DELTA GAMMA LSU!
Gamma Zeta Chapter
The Gamma Zeta Chapter of Delta Gamma began in 1947 with the pledging of 6 LSU women. Through the efforts of local alumnae, Gamma Zeta became the 75th chapter of Delta Gamma when the chapter was formally installed on March 20, 1948. The efforts put forth by these women were tremendous. They set the foundation for Delta Gamma to take its current position as one of the largest and most highly respected sororities on the LSU campus.
Since Gamma Zeta’s colonization in 1947, our chapter has grown to one of the 5 largest Delta Gamma Chapters in the country and the 2014 New Member class is the largest in our chapter's history. Delta Gammas at LSU have continued to strive for excellence in all that we do. We were proud to once again win the 2015 Outstanding Sisterhood Award at the 2014 LSU Order of Omega Ceremony. Our members hold officer positions in Panhellenic, campus and community-wide organizations such as: Student Government, Saintsations, LSU Cheerleading, LSU Track and Field, Panhellenic Council, Greek Board of Directors, Young Life, and honor societies.

Delta Gamma's History
Delta Gamma was founded in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi, at the Lewis School for Girls by three young women. Together, Anna Boyd, Mary Comfort and Eva Webb created a club of "mutual helpfulness." They chose the Greek letters Delta and Gamma because of their desire to "Do Good." It remains Delta Gamma's motto today and a driving force in all we do. Delta Gamma is a sisterhood built on a commitment to making the world better through not only service, but also a deep appreciation for each individual.
What started with three women in Oxford, Mississippi, has since grown into an international Fraternity with 146 collegiate chapters and more than 220 alumnae groups. Delta Gamma's sisterhood continues to inspire women through the values that were built into our very first Constitution. Article II, written by our Founders in 1873, states:
The objects of this Fraternity shall be to foster high ideals of friendship among women, to promote their educational and cultural interests, to create in them a true sense of social responsibility, and develop in them the finest qualities of character.
