Alpha Gamma Delta’s roots at Nebraska Wesleyan University date back to 1887 with the Thophanian Literary Society—a group of male ministerial students. The society began admitting women in 1889. The women held separate meetings in 1908.
We renamed ourselves Kosdian to distinguish ourselves from the men. Another name change came in 1917, when we became Alpha Kappa Delta. We gave the university the famous stained glass window in Old Main in 1923. We were installed into Alpha Gamma Delta on October 14, 1927. We moved into our current home in 1928.
Alpha Gamma Delta enjoys wide recognition as a premiere women’s organization committed to academic excellence, leadership development, high ideals and sisterhood. No matter where life takes an Alpha Gam, she will always find herself “Surrounded by Sisterhood.”
