all women, including trans and intersex women, have the right to participate in, shape, and benefit from what this organization offers.

Are you a strictly online sorority?

While all of our meetings, hangouts, and speaker events are held online over Zoom, we as an organization encourage our Sisters to meet in person when the opportunity presents itself. Additionally, the Founding Mothers and Executive Council members are in the process of planning the SlothSisters first retreat, open to all members to attend and meet their fellow Sorors.
What are the academic eligibility requirements for membership?
Alpha Delta Lambda Gamma is a non-academically driven sorority. We believe that ALL women should have the opportunity to join and participate in an organization that facilitates bonding between like-minded individuals regardless of grades. It is also our understanding that increased social support can help to increase resiliency, the ability to work through stressful situations while in school, and the adoption of healthier coping strategies, useful in maintaining and improving university student self-efficacy.

Membership dues received from members are used to cover necessary costs associated with the organization, such as incorporation and registration fees, website, member welcome boxes, gifts for members throughout the year, as well as shipping costs related to sending gifts to members across the United States.
