A letter from our president
Hi! My name is Maddy Skrovan and I am the proud chapter president of Delta Gamma at Arizona State University! I am beyond honored to share more about our sisterhood and what makes DG truly a special place to be.
From the moment I joined this incredible sisterhood, I knew that I had found my home away from home—a place where lifelong friendships are formed, values are shared and cherished, and the women are passionate and intentional in everything they do.
Delta Gamma has a rich history of fostering personal growth, academic excellence, and leadership development, and I am privileged to be a part of that legacy. Our chapter here at Arizona State University has been a prominent place in the ASU community for several years now, winning on-campus (and national) awards every year without fail. We have a sisterhood like no other, where women have met their best friends, bridesmaids, and even business partners. I always knew I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself but I am so lucky it ended up being an amazing organization like Delta Gamma.
One aspect of Delta Gamma that makes us standout is our unwavering commitment to our philanthropy, Service for Sight. Through our philanthropic efforts, we strive to make a difference in the lives of those with visual impairments. Our passion towards our philanthropy truly sets us apart among other chapters. We have several sisters that attend Foundation for Blind Children multiple times a year, many sisters are also raising guide dog puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and all our sisters fundraise for Service for Sight. This cause holds a special place in our hearts as we work tirelessly to raise awareness and funds to support those who are visually impaired. Our philanthropy is extremely hands-on, which is something we are very proud of!
Delta Gamma is truly a special place where all are welcome and differences are celebrated. We have women in all majors across all ASU campuses, all our members are involved in other clubs on campus, and we value academic excellence. We are known for being a well-rounded group on campus, and leaders in our community.
Delta Gamma has given me way more over these past 4 years than I ever have could have imagined. It’s a support system of over 200 women, all rooting for you and in your corner. I have found role models in women older than me and now I get to be a role model to newer members. Delta Gamma has been here in my vital college years and I would not be the leader and person I am today without the opportunities DG has given me. And of course, I would not be president without my sisters being the best cheerleaders and pushing me to be the best version of myself.
Delta Gamma offers to women of all ages a rich heritage based on principles of personal integrity, personal responsibility and intellectual honesty. Its primary purpose is to foster high ideals of friendship, promote educational and cultural interests, create a true sense of social responsibility, and develop the finest qualities of character.
Delta Gamma was founded in 1873 in Oxford, Mississippi, at the Lewis School
for Girls by three young women who were unable to go home for the Christmas break due to unforeseen weather. 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.

A letter from our vp membership
Hi! My name is Hayden Sink and I am the Vice President of Membership for Delta Gamma here at Arizona State University!
Going through recruitment my freshman year, I was really nervous because I had no idea what to expect, going through recruitment during COVID.
I knew I wanted to find a home away from home in a sorority with women who empower me, inspire me, and uplift me, just like my family did back home. The very second I stepped into Delta Gamma, I knew I found the support system and loving environment that I was looking for. From my first conversation during recruitment, Delta Gamma felt like home, I was surrounded by women that push themselves and their sisters to do good and be good in all things, no matter what, and from that moment on, Delta Gamma held such a special place in my heart. Three years later, I am so blessed to have found the most amazing, well rounded group of women to call not only my sisters, but my best friends and future bridesmaids as well!
Joining a Sorority has been the best decision I have made at my time here at ASU. I can’t imagine life without my sisters by my side, getting to serve and better our community together, and creating life long memories that I will cherish forever! From having countless sleepovers at the GLV, road-tripping cross country with my sisters, date parties, anchorsplash every year, I am so thankful to have found such an amazing group of people who made this big school feel like a small, loving community. This sisterhood is truly for life, not just four years.
For all of you going through recruitment this fall, I am so extremely excited for you to experience going through recruitment and finding your home with an amazing chapter! You’ll soon get to experience just how special being part of a sisterhood is and all the new opportunities you will get to experience. I know I speak for all of Delta Gamma when I say just how excited we are to meet you this fall and show just how much we love this sisterhood.
Don’t forget to be yourself and cherish every moment to the fullest! These four years go by so quick, but every moment is worth it with sisters by your side! <3
PANHELLENIc RECRUITMENT AT ARIZONA STATE
The Panhellenic Council hosts Formal Recruitment over the first two weekends of the fall semester. The recruitment process allows potential members to visit each sorority on the first day of recruitment and throughout the two weekends, find a group of women that feels like their home away from home. At the end of each day, chapters will select potential members to invite back to their next event and potential members will prioritize their selections as well. This mutual selection process allows for the best fit for both the chapter and the new member. Although COVID-19 might alter the recruitment process slightly, we still ensure that every potential new member will have the ability to find their home away from home here at Arizona State.
WHY DELTA GAMMA?
Delta Gamma encourages an atmosphere among women that fosters high ideals of friendship, promotes their educational and cultural interests, creates in them a true sense of social responsibility and develops in them the best qualities of character. Every member is unique and yet they all share a single bond of friendship through Delta Gamma.
Delta Gamma is more than just a collegiate experience; it is a lifetime of commitment, support and opportunity. While a member's collegiate experience may include fun social events, chapter meetings and leadership opportunities, her Delta Gamma experience will grow into something much more. When a Delta Gamma looks for her first professional job, when she expands her family, or when she moves to an unfamiliar city; Delta Gamma will be a part of her story.
WHO CAN JOIN OUR SISTERHOOD?
Delta Gamma is proud that each member is valued for her individuality. We are looking for women who will bring the qualities that our members themselves hold near and dear, such as: The best qualities of character, aspiration to belong to an organization with high ideals of friendship, educational and cultural interests, a sense of social responsibility, and a desire to develop on a personal level Being a Delta Gamma is more than joining a chapter of our Fraternity. Joining Delta Gamma is the first step in developing a life-long sisterhood and bonds with women who truly want to make the world a better place and have committed to "Do Good" each day.
