why alpha gam?
"Alpha Gam is a place I feel completely and totally me. Every sister makes me feel seen and heard because we truly care about one another. A simple 'good morning' or 'good luck on your exam' means more from an Alpha Gam because they genuinely do want you to have a good morning or ace your test! They are the most genuine and authentic group of girls and I appreciate every single one of them for making me feel so welcome and cared for."

"to cherish friendships with but a chosen few...
"When I came into college, I had no idea what the future would hold. As a Hispanic woman, I was weary of participating in formal recruitment because I was scared I wouldn't find the place for me. Alpha Gam was the very first house I visited during Round 1 of Recruitment. Sitting on the shady front porch in the stifling Georgia heat, I felt at ease. I lost the nerves I was so used to. Just sitting on the front steps with other PNMs, I couldn't help but admire the beauty of our historic home. As we filed into the foyer and the Alpha Gam chants filled the air, my nerves were replaced by excitement. I felt like I was home.
As I reflect on my past three years, I am reminded of the friendships I've grown, cultivated, and cherished. My roommates, Peyton and Libby, are my closest confidants and my fiercest advocates. They stand behind me no matter the occasion and are there to support me when I need it most. They will be alongside me for life; that, I have no doubts about. I love them dearly and would not be the woman I am today without them.
To anyone woman considering going through Recruitment: do it. Put yourself out there. Meet all of the wonderful women in our Panhellenic community. Find friendships that will last you past these four sweet years. I promise you, you won't regret it.

"Alpha Gam felt like home the first time I walked through the doors during recruitment. I have such pride to walk around campus sporting my letters and knowing they stand for a group of women who are impactful, driven, and compassionate. These are people who have been there to celebrate my highs and pick up from my lows and made all the little life moments so sweet. As I'm approaching my senior year of college, I cherish every moment with these girls and know these friendships will last a lifetime; these memories will always be held near and dear to my heart. Alpha Gam will always feel like home to me."

...and to study the perfecting of those friendships"
"Alpha Gam immediately felt like a group of girls where I was welcomed. Comfortable and genuine are words I use a lot to describe our sisterhood. I've never met a group of girls where I felt like I could be so fully myself and where I knew everyone else was able to do that too until I became an Alpha Gam."

"Alpha Gam is truly home. From 1AM drives around Athens blaring Taylor Swift after a hard day to dance sessions in the house, my sisters have been there with me through it all. I can be unapologetically myself in Alpha Gam and I am constantly encouraged to thrive in both the classroom and the community. These friendships are truly for life."

"I’ve heard people say that they join a sorority and hope to find their bridesmaids, and as cliche as that is-- that’s what I was looking for! But I was so nervous to join a sorority because I had such high standards of what I wanted. I’m so thankful for Alpha Gam because I have found two of my best friends ever. In just 5 months I’ve created a bond with these girls that I know will last a lifetime! If it wasn’t for the new member sisterhood retreat I would not have connected with Hannah and Claire and we wouldn’t be best friends or future roommates!!"

"I am so thankful that Alpha Gamma Delta brought me my best friend! I met Cam on Bid Day, and she has been there for me every step of the way since then. She is a sister, pushes me to be the best woman I can be, and makes life so much fun. Thank you Alpha Gam for sisters like Cam!!!!!
