Delta Gamma Sorority

Theta Epsilon Chapter

The establishment of Theta Epsilon chapter included events led by Ali Bontrager and Sarah Gornik, Collegiate Development Consultants assigned to support the chapter. “Infoviews” between potential members, Fraternity staff and volunteers, and a preference event with sisters from Beta Mu-Bowling Green were held in October 2018. The establishment events culminated in October 2018 with the pledging of the charter members of Theta Epsilon-Grand Valley State and a Bid Day celebration. Theta Epsilon and its 58 charter members join the sisterhood of over 230,000 living members with their December 1st Initiation and Installation. Theta Epsilon celebrates becoming Delta Gamma’s 203rd chapter since 1873, and the 151st active chapter of Delta Gamma on college campuses today.
