Dear Parents and Guardians,
As Chapter Advisor of the Ohio State Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta, I want to extend my own personal welcome to you into the extended Alpha Gam family. Alpha Gamma Delta was founded in 1904 by 11 young women. These women had needs of friendship, purpose, and support for personal growth. While many things have changed since 1904, these basic needs still exist for college women today, especially now that women have so many more choices and decisions to make in their lives.
Those of us who are already members of Alpha Gamma Delta have found that the organization fills these needs, and offers so many more opportunities that compliment a formal education. These include development of communication skills, self-government techniques, goal setting, time management, group dynamics, personal development, and leadership development. Of course, Alpha Gamma Delta believes in developing all of these skills in an atmosphere that supports scholastic excellence. Statistics show that fraternity women have the highest grade point average on campus when compared with fraternity men and unaffiliated men and women. All of these characteristics are essential in the development of a well-rounded woman.
If you would like to learn more about the history of our organization and current work, I encourage you to visit our webpage at www.alphagammadelta.org. I hope you will read this material and take note of our Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose. It was the basis of our founding and today is still the basis of our programs and activities.
I believe that Alpha Gamma Delta provides not only the above mentioned leadership opportunities, but also a sense of purpose, personal growth, and friendship. I hope that throughout your daughter’s college years we will have the opportunity to meet on several occasions. If you have any questions regarding Alpha Gamma Delta, or our new member program in particular, please do not hesitate to call or be in touch.
I had a wonderful experience in Alpha Gamma Delta as a college student and continue to have a great experience as an advisor to the organization. I believe that your daughter will have a similarly meaningful experience in our organization.
