Every semester we have dances with our entire chapter and their dates at an off campus venue. Every fall we have our New Member Dance with a fun costume theme, followed by either a Winter or Valentines Day Semi-Formal, then finally our annual formal in the spring called Cream Rose. Delta Gamma provides buses to the great venue along with snacks at the dance and it's a great time for everyone!

Our chapter frequently pairs up with other chapters on campus, both fraternities and sororities, to have fun events. Activities we do together range from bowling to community service to paint fights, and it is always great to bond with other Greeks on our campus.

As a chapter, we also frequently have social events exclusively for us sisters. We enjoy spending time bonding as a chapter and doing fun activities together with our sisters.

Once a semester, our chapter holds retreats to strengthen our bonds as sisters. Retreats are usually day-long, but we sometimes even have overnight ones. Activities we've done for retreats include staying overnight in cabins in Tahoe, participating in challenging ropes courses, and even we even take a chapter trip to Six Flags Theme Park! They are an incredible time to build relationships between sisters and create lasting memories in our chapter.

Every Spring, on or near March 15, all Delta Gamma chapters celebrate the day that our fraternity was founded by holding an event called Founders Day. At our chapter, we spend the day holding a nice brunch and raffle event with our alumnae. It is a fun time to remember DG's start as well as get to know our alumnae better.
