Athens, GA - Alpha Xi Delta is excited to announce it is officially back at the University of Georgia (UGA)! The Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta, originally founded in 1960, had been dormant since 1976. On Sunday, February 18, 2024, the Chapter was officially re-installed, marking its official return to UGA’s campus.

“Having Alpha Xi Delta back at the University of Georgia is a major point of pride for our organization. The support we have received from the UGA community throughout this process has been incredible,” said Alpha Xi Delta National President Megan Crouch. “The women who are the charter members of the Gamma Upsilon Chapter are amazing leaders who are intelligent, bold, and passionate. They are laying the groundwork for a solid foundation for Alpha Xi Delta to thrive at UGA for generations to come.”

Alpha Xi Delta announced in March 2023 plans to create a re-establish a chapter at UGA, making Alpha Xi Delta the 20th National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) organization on campus. In the fall of 2023, Educational Leadership Consultants Madalyn Raymond and Olivia Riddle arrived on campus to meet with interested students.
