The Iota Chapter

Alpha Gamma Delta Iota chapter was established at the University of Washington in 1909. The Iota chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta, or "Alpha Gam" as it is known locally, is one of the oldest and strongest chapters within the fraternity. The chapter consistently achieves "five stars" from International Headquarters for their scholastic accomplishments, philanthropic involvement, and dedication to the international fraternity. Iota’s rich tradition has helped establish itself as one of the premier chapters within Alpha Gamma Delta and on the University of Washington campus.

Alpha Gamma Delta was officially founded on May 30, 1904, at Syracuse University. The 11 founders were progressive women who selflessly contributed to the foundation and growth of Alpha Gamma Delta. Since the founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at 188 colleges and universities across North America and more than 160,000 women have become Alpha Gam sisters. Guided by our Purpose, Alpha Gamma Deltas are impacting our communities and contributing to the world's work.
