Inspire the woman, impact the world. This is the vision of Alpha Gamma Delta, and has held strong since we first joined the Montevallo Greek community in 1972. We are an international fraternity for women that exists to provide opportunities for personal development through the spirit of sisterhood. This means that as Alpha Gamma Delta sisters, we support and love one another through these years of growth, becoming a place to truly call a home away from home. It is a place where you can be yourself, a place that doesn’t ask you to change. Our diverse groups of girls allows you to meet women you would have never met otherwise. We come from all different backgrounds and talents. We are artists, athletes, SGA members, tour guides, Best Buddies members, honor society members, interns, College Night participants, community volunteers, and more. Each individual in our sorority is special and inspires us, and we could not be the group that we are without them.
Alpha Gamma Delta members also have a heart for our philanthropic focus: Fighting Hunger. We are the only sorority that has our own foundation that provides service opportunities, scholarships, and help for sisters in need. In addition to our partnerships with Feeding America and Meals on Wheels, the Montevallo Alpha Gams also work closely with our on-campus food pantry, which provides meals for students in need. Each year we host two major philanthropic events. In the fall, we hold Lip Jam, a lip-syncing and dancing competition in which all of the Greek organizations compete, and in the spring, we host a Minute-to-Win-It ExtravaGamza. Additionally, we hold canned food drives throughout the year. The Alpha Gam heart for service is huge, and we love doing all that we can to help make an impact.
We as Alpha Gamma Delta sisters, inspire one another every day to Live with Purpose and to help one another find that purpose along the way.
