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 was instrumental in the early development of the chapter. Each of the fraternity's 11 founders were progressive women who selflessly contributed to the foundation and growth of Alpha Gamma Delta. Since the founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at 188 colleges and universities across North America and more than 160,000 women have become Alpha Gamma Delta sisters. Alpha Gamma Deltas are impacting our communities and contributing to the world's work.
