In the spring of 2002, Delta Gamma presented NC State with a bid to colonize during the Fall 2002 semester. When the Fall Semester began, Delta Gamma representatives began to recruit bright, enthusiastic young women. On September 24th, an open event was held at Tally Student Center. The next day, September 25th, the representatives conducted one on one interviews with the interested women, and on September 26th, a preference party was held at University Club with the Duke "Beta Theta" chapter. Finally on September 27th, the much anticipated bid day was held. Seventy- six women with a cumulative colony GPA of 3.2 were chosen to be the Eta Kappa colony.
Delta Gamma was charted at NC State in 2002, and has grown to become a strong chapter with excellent sisterhood. The members of Delta Gamma build their personal and professional character by involving themselves in our foundation, Service for Sight, and achieving academic excellence. Delta Gamma is sure to provide you with an enriching experience and is a great way to become more involved on NC State's campus. We create strong and empowered women that leave our chapter to make changes in the world!
Delta Gamma was awarded "Sorority of the Year" at the Greek Life Awards in 2014 and 2015, along with maintaining a status as a Sopher chapter and placing as finalists for council involvement, leadership training, and risk management. They received the Prevent Blindness North Carolina Volunteer Award, as well as an Appreciation Award from Governor Pat McCrory. They came in first place in Homecoming for the years of 2014, 2015, and 2016. President Grace Forster was recognized as the 2015 Outstanding Woman in Leadership at the Outstanding Women's Awards on campus. Additionally, at the Standards of Excellence awards in 2017 they were recognized as Sorority of the Year and Most Sustainable Chapter.
Lastly, we recently finished construction for our new home in Fall of 2016. Our legacy continues to have an impact on our community, along with memories that will last you a lifetime!
