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.
We are an organization founded on the ideals of friendship, educational and cultural interests, social responsibility, and developing the best qualities of character. We strive to maintain an active role on campus in philanthropy events as well as all-campus events, with NC State classics such as the Krispy Kreme Challenge and Dance Marathon. Each of our members belongs to another organization or club outside of Delta Gamma, and is heavily involved around our campus in general. With the anchor as our symbol, membership in Delta Gamma provides hope, strength, and life to each of its members- it is forever.
Most recently, Delta Gamma was awarded "Sorority of the Year" at the Greek Life Awards in 2014, 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. First place in Greek Week 2014 and 2015 and Homecoming for the year of 2014 were accomplished as well. President Grace Forster was recognized as the 2015 Outstanding Woman in Leadership at the Outstanding Women's Awards on campus. This year alone, ten members have been accepted to the Order of Omega Honor Society.
Lastly, we recently broke ground in March for our new home to be completed in Fall of 2016. Our legacy continues to have an impact on our community, along with memories that will last you a lifetime!
