The Gamma Iota alumnae and undergraduate leadership have developed a solid plan to address the long-term viability of the Delta Gamma experience on the DePauw campus. Delta Gammas must invest in their home to meet the needs of today’s students and guarantee an enduring legacy. Gamma Iota’s chapter house was built in 1958; it has been part of Gamma Iota’s legacy for more than 60 years. The renovation will bring their home up to date while also meeting the everyday needs of the active membership.
