Delta Gamma

Delta Pi Chapter at University of Southern Mississippi

Chapter History

The Delta Pi chapter of Delta Gamma was founded in 1973, 100 years after the founding of Delta Gamma. Close to home, The University of Southern Mississippi is located only a few hours away from the location of our Fraternity’s founding at the Lewis School for Girls in Oxford, MS. 

Through the years our sisterhood has been characterized by awards and activities, but what persists is the form of a Delta Pi woman.

Women of our chapter are known for their values of authenticity, honesty, and mutual helpfulness. Delta Pi, Delta Gamma women consistently participate in intramurals, campus organizations, and community service.

We receive recognition for our academic standing, service, and chapter culture and conduct. Delta Pi women throughout our history strive to do good by doing our best in all aspects of our lives and campus, always trying to leave Southern Miss better than we found it.
