A Message From Our President, Victoria Donnelly:
Hello all prospective members, cherished alumnae, and beloved sisters! I’m Victoria Donnelly, the current president of the Eta Phi chapter of Delta Gamma, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our chapter!
Eta Phi came to New York University in 2016, and in those three years we have grown into an incredibly diverse, empowering, and high achieving chapter that will only continue to excel as we progress. Though our chapter is the newest Panhellenic organization at NYU, our women have made their commitment to scholarship, service, and sisterhood clear from the start. Our sisters are dedicated, passionate, multi-faceted women who each bring their own individual spark not only to Eta Phi, but the greater NYU community.
In 1873, Delta Gamma was founded by three women in Oxford, Mississippi, and since has grown to include 148 collegiate chapters and more than 220 alumnae groups with over 200,000 initiated members. The objectives of Delta Gamma Fraternity are to foster high ideals of friendship among women, to promote their educational and cultural interests, to create in them a true sense of social responsibility and to develop in them the best qualities of character.
The women of Eta Phi chapter at New York University, like their sisters before, strive to uphold Delta Gamma’s values in everything they do. They are here for motivating each other to be the best women they can be and are here for good.
For me, Delta Gamma has been the place where I have become the women I was always meant to be. I never imagined myself as a leader, much less the leader of over one hundred brilliant women who constantly amaze me with the things they are capable of. However, it was my sisters who saw something in me that I could not have seen on my own, and encouraged me to achieve my full potential. As president, I hope to bring what DG has brought to me - a feeling of safety and comfort, constant inspiration, and the challenge to be the best version of myself. It is these things that make me constantly proud to wear the letters of Delta Gamma and live out our motto of “Do Good” each day.
