Delta Delta Delta was founded at Boston University in 1888. Since our chapter at Purdue University, Gamma Iota, was founded 100 years later we are known as the Centennial Chapter. At the time it was built, our chapter house was the largest Tri Delta in the nation. We recently celebrated our 25th anniversary as a chapter!
"The purpose of Delta Delta Delta shall be to establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, to develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life, and to assist its members in every possible way.
It shall also be the purpose of Delta Delta Delta to promote and develop mutually beneficial relationships between the Fraternity and the colleges and universities where the Fraternity has established chapters, to develop qualities of unselfish leadership among its members, and to encourage them to assume, with integrity and devotion to moral and democratic principles, the highest responsibilities of college women."
