“As Delta Gammas, we pride ourselves on involvement across campus, dedication to our philanthropy, and most importantly, our sisterhood. From my very first bid day, I have grown to love every aspect of our unique chapter. Delta Gamma has given me countless opportunities to serve, lead, and truly grow as an individual. Being a Delta Gamma has made my time at Ole Miss better than I could have ever imagined. From getting ready for Milk and Cookies with my sisters, to competing in Derby Days, the relationships I have formed in DG have enriched my college years, and will be some I will never forget. We strive to “Do Good” every day, as the value of our sisterhood reaches far past our four years on campus, but for life.”
Alpha Psi is comprised of incredibly talented, diverse, and accomplished young women, each of whom brings something special to our chapter. Through sisterhood activities, social events, philanthropies, scholastic enrichment, and community service, Delta Gamma offers a place for each individual’s personal growth.
“When we were asked to share our favorite memory of DG as a freshman for our Initiation Ceremony slideshow, I wrote ‘My favorite memory of DG would have to be the moment I decided that these were the kind of girls I wanted as sisters. On skit night of Recruitment Week. I practically fell on tiny Jennifer Mitchell, a stranger to me at the time, when I tripped over a brick in my heels and broke my pearl bracelet on the front steps. As I entered the mass chaos inside the house, I began to cry. So many girls stopped jumping and cheering to come help the embarrassed girl; they dried my tears and made me laugh with embarrassing stories of their own. So my favorite thing about DG would have to be the precious, genuine girls that have continued to make me smile every day since then.’
I wrote this in 2013 as a new member, and now as a Junior I am so proud to say that I am still surrounded by girls who continuously pick me up when I am down, dry off my tears, and make me laugh every single day!”

I knew that I loved DG from the moment I walked in the house on Greek Day! The DG house is my absolute favorite place on campus, and I know that the sisters I have gained will be my friends for life.

My favorite DG memory was Bid Day 2014. I remember seeing the anchor on my bid day card, and then I started sprinting towards the ‘Big White House’. I was the first new member of my pledge class to show up to the house, and the Daily Mississippian even captured a photo of it. I still have the photo, and I remember how happy I was to finally become a Delta Gamma!

Delta Gamma feels like family. The girls are all so genuine and loving, so I love being able to call DG my home.

Delta Gamma has given me my home away from home at Ole Miss. I eat my meals here, I study here, and I have created long lasting memories with my best friends here. As cliche as it may sound, DG has given me my sisters, and for that, I am forever grateful.
