New Member Experience
Alpha Gamma Delta has developed a comprehensive membership development program called the Alpha Gamma Delta Experience. The Alpha Gamma Delta Experience consists of three components:
THE ALPHA EXPERIENCE
The goal of the Alpha Experience is to help new members acclimate to Fraternity life and set expectations for membership. With an emphasis on sisterhood, the Alpha Experience consists of five key programs: Scholarship, Values, Life Balance, Operations and History.
THE GAMMA EXPERIENCE
The Gamma Experience is focused on individual and chapter growth and provides members the opportunity to learn more about themselves and develop skills that will impact them for a lifetime. Throughout the two-year program, members discuss the relevance of each line of the Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose in today's society and participate in group and individual activities surrounding these lines. Individual reflection is also a component of this program.
THE DELTA EXPERIENCE
The Delta Experience was created to help seniors navigate the transition from collegiate to alumnae life. Through senior-specific activities with local alumnae chapters/clubs and Junior Circles, the Delta Experience allows seniors to prepare for life after college as they reflect on their collegiate experience with activities such as Senior Recognition Week.
Together, these components offer all Alpha Gamma Deltas the necessary tools to become strong, progressive women who make a positive difference in the lives of others. The Fraternity is confident that the Alpha Gamma Delta Experience will benefit our members by providing the framework for lifelong, personal and professional development.
Meet your Pledge Mom: Marley!
Marley is a junior, double majoring in Biomedical Sciences and Anthropology.
My favorite part is being the go-to person for new members. I love getting to know and welcome everyone, and always being there to answer questions or help in any way. It’s so fun being able to help these women form bonds with each other and the rest of our sisters, while they learn about Alpha Gam. I love seeing everyone get more comfortable within the sisterhood and grow as individuals as they find a place where they can be their selves."
What can you expect In weekly meetings I set aside time for new members to talk about anything from “biggest fears”, favorite parts of the week, making paper hearts for each other to write favorite memories and compliments on, and just different ways for them to get to know each other better.
It’s exciting putting together and seeing the excitement of things like Bid Day, Big/Little Week and watching everyone get initiated at the end of everything. The energy of new members reminds me to appreciate our sisterhood. It makes my heart so full.
