Letter from our Recruitment Team
Welcome to the website for the Epsilon chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta at the University of Kentucky! Let us be one of the first to congratulate you on your decision to begin your collegiate career at the University of Kentucky- you’re going to make a great wildcat! We are excited for your interest in participating in recruitment and seeing the benefits of going Greek. We at Alpha Gamma Delta invite you to take a closer look at our chapter and see all that we have to offer!
At the University of Kentucky, Epsilon chapter members strive to “Live with purpose” everyday, as exhibited in our commitment to scholarship, community, self, and most importantly, sisterhood. Our members strive for greatness in their academics through maintaining a high GPA, attending office hours, and submitting weekly study hours. Through our devotion to scholarship, our chapter was awarded the Innovative Scholar Award at our biennial international convention held this past July. Alpha Gam Epsilon maintains a 100 percent involvement in campus activities outside of our own chapter, thus allowing us to also win the Activities Award at the biennial international convention. We are proud that our members participate in: Club Softball, DanceBlue, Education Abroad, Peer Ambassadors, 4 Paws 4 Ability, Miss America Organization, and many others. DanceBlue is very important to all of the UK community, especially Alpha Gam. Presently, the Epsilon Chapter has won the UK DanceBlue Matrix Cup 3 times, with back to back wins. The Matrix Cup is awarded to the student organization who has raised the most money, collected the most spirit points, and has the most dancers represented on the floor. In 2016 alone, our chapter raised $34,983 for DanceBlue. In conjunction with UK FarmHouse and the UK Rodeo Team, the 2016 Cowboy Up for a Cure Rodeo raised over $65,000 to support Central Kentucky pediatric patient care and rehabilitation. Furthermore, our chapter is a proud supporter the entire Greek community, and our college Panhellenic council. Our chapter was recognized with the inaugural Myra Vedder Foxworthy Panhellenic Award, which celebrates an outstanding amount of support for the College Panhellenic chapter through participation in Panhellenic events, leadership within the Panhellenic committee, and devotion to the guidelines.
As an Alpha Gam, your college experience will be enriched with life long memories, a foundation for leadership, opportunities for philanthropic involvement, and a sisterhood that will last a lifetime. Whether you’re looking for a friend to work out with, cheer on our Cats with, cry with, celebrate with, or just to love life with, we’ve got you covered! We welcome you to take a look at the rest of our website and hope you get an opportunity to see the strong bond we share and the fun we have. We cannot wait to see you in the fall!
