Dear Potential New Members,
Hey fam, and welcome to Alpha Gam! My name is Shilpa, and I am so proud to represent Alpha Gamma Delta as Vice President of Recruitment. College is an incredible experience filled with exciting adventures and stressful times—and as someone who’s had plenty of both, I can’t imagine going through this experience without my sisters there to guide me.
As Alpha Gamma Deltas, we live by the motto, “Loving, Leading, Lasting”, and our sisters display these values every day. Here, our sisters celebrate a diverse set of involvements and interests including Alternative Service Breaks, Georgia Tech Cheer, Tour Guides, Girls Who Code, Campus Kitchens, GT Club Sports, Society of Women in Business, The Technique, and so much more. We also congratulate sisters when they receive offers from companies like Microsoft, Exxon, Disney, Amazon, and so much more.
Nothing has defined my college experience more than being an Alpha Gam. With spontaneous trips to Cookout during late night study sessions, to adventures across the world while studying abroad—my sisters have been there with me through it all. They’ve pushed me out of my comfort zone, forcing me to experience the joys of life.
Sometimes choosing a career path, or even choosing classes, may seem daunting. I remember struggling to decide my major, then switching it, but still feeling like I wasn’t smart enough because of how competitive this school can be. These women helped me overcome these struggles, and when I received my internship at Microsoft, my sisters were the ones who held me as I cried tears of joy in our house’s lobby.
I know recruitment can be overwhelming, but you may find your home away from home! During recruitment, I chose Alpha Gam because I met women who I could be my goofy self around. I knew I had found a house full of women who would not only be my best friends, but could also be my role models. My hope is that you feel comfortable, valued, and confident in who you are throughout the recruitment process. We cannot wait to show you the joy and love of what it means to be an Alpha Gamma Delta during Recruitment!
Alumnae members of Alpha Gamma Delta have endless opportunities to stay involved with the Fraternity. Alpha Gamma Delta can provide a lifelong ability to give back, whether you choose to volunteer with a collegiate chapter as an advisor or with a larger role on the Volunteer Service Team. Many cities and areas across North American have Alumnae Chapters and Clubs that alumnae can join to keep with with sisters and meet other Alpha Gams close to home.
The goal of the Alpha Experience is to help new members acclimate to Fraternity life and set expectations for membership. With an emphasis on sisterhood, the Alpha Experience consists of five key programs: Scholarship, Values, Life Balance, Operations and History.
The Gamma Experience is focused on individual and chapter growth and provides members the opportunity to learn more about themselves and develop skills that will impact them for a lifetime. Throughout the two-year program, members discuss the relevance of each line of the Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose in today's society and participate in group and individual activities surrounding these lines. Individual reflection is also a component of this program.
The Delta Experience was created to help seniors navigate the transition from collegiate to alumnae life. Through senior-specific activities with local alumnae chapters/clubs and Junior Circles, the Delta Experience allows seniors to prepare for life after college as they reflect on their collegiate experience with activities such as Senior Recognition Week.
Together, these components offer all Alpha Gamma Deltas the necessary tools to become strong, progressive women who make a positive difference in the lives of others. The Fraternity is confident that the Alpha Gamma Delta Experience will benefit our members by providing the framework for lifelong, personal and professional development.
Alpha Gamma Delta provides its members with a defining college experience that lasts a lifetime. Inspired by the vision and values defined by our Founders, Alpha Gamma Delta cherishes the lifelong opportunity to share sisterhood. We challenge our members to lead lives of significance that positively impact their communities.
We take to heart our message to Live with Purpose, which at its simplest means that we will be there for your daughter, encouraging her to take care of herself and those around her, to become the best version of herself that she can be and to share her talents to make a difference in the world. We are proud to have the opportunity to be part of your daughter’s journey and we take that honor and responsibility seriously.
