Omicron Chapter of Delta Delta Delta

National Founding Date: November 27, 1888

Chapter Installation Date: October 30, 1896

Organization Values:  Be Yourself and Belong Membership in Tri Delta is for a lifetime, allowing you to be yourself and belong to something bigger—something distinctive, something dynamic and something that is worthy of the best in you. Brave, Bold & Kind Our Founders’ vision of women who are “kind alike to all” is an aspiration that guides Tri Delta and inspires our deep commitment to philanthropy and service. Lifelong Growth & Friendship Tri Delta provides a lifetime opportunity to live, learn and lead—with Purpose—in a place that values support, personal growth, high ideals and friendship.

Mission: Tri Delta is an assembly of women with shared values where you can be yourself and belong to something bigger. We are brave, bold and kind. We are passionate about serving others, committed to becoming the best version of ourselves and dedicated to helping women live, learn and lead—with Purpose—for a lifetime.

Vision: Although there were three women's groups represented at Boston University in 1888, seniors Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond saw a need for a different organization that would be kind alike to all and think more of the girl's inner self and character than of her personal appearance. Not only did these two young women create the framework of our organization, but they also created its Rituals and symbols, wrote its constitution, and designed its emblems. All was finished on Thanksgiving Eve in 1888 when the two embraced each other and declared Tri Delta is founded. Their vision has grown into the dynamic women's organization we know today.

Rho Chapter of Delta Gamma

National Founding Date: December 25, 1873

Chapter Founding Year: 1901

Organization Values:  The objective 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 to develop in them the best qualities of character.

Mission: 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. 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, and are represented in our chapters today. Delta Gamma Fraternity is committed to cultivating an inclusive and equitable environment and experience for our members, potential new members, and communities.

Vision: College is full of memories and experiences that will shape a woman's life and help lead her into a lifetime of fulfilling membership as an alumna. Upon graduation, Delta Gamma's sisterhood is a network of support that enables each alumna to pursue her dreams and goals, while allowing her to give back. With opportunities to join one of more than 200 alumnae groups, mentor collegians, serve as advisers and volunteer for leadership positions, the Delta Gamma experience does not end after college. Instead, our sisterhood broadens to give each Delta Gamma the chance to continue her involvement in her own unique way. Because serving others is at the root of Delta Gamma's history, the Delta Gamma Foundation functions as the philanthropic arm of the organization.
