The History of Our Organization

Alpha Gamma Delta was officially founded on May 30, 1904 at the home of Dr. Wellesley Perry Coddington, a professor at Syracuse University who was instrumental in the early development of Alpha Gamma Delta. Each of the Fraternity's 11 founders were progressive women who selflessly contributed to the foundation and growth of Alpha Gamma Delta. Since their founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at 188 colleges and universities across North America and more than 160,000 women have become Alpha Gam sisters. Alpha Gamma Deltas are impacting their communities and contributing to the world's work.
