Why Should You Rush Alpha Theta Gamma?

The sisters of Alpha Theta Gamma truly value diversity of background and personality, accepting our sisters just as they are. We make sure to empower our sisters. We will not break anyone down to fit a stereotype or particular "image" because we value each individual thing that makes a person unique. We are proud to be a tight-knit sisterhood. Beyond having a group of women as sisters, we also provide our sisters with invaluable skills to propel them forward in life.


Without hazing, our sisters still able to take pledges through a very enriching, meaningful, memorable experience that builds and strengthens their character (and most importantly, promotes true sisterhood).


We are also dedicated to community service, and motivate one another to help others. We work with our sisters to make their personal philanthropic interests happen. And as a young organization, all sisters have the opportunity to build upon it by creating new traditions, community service related, and non-community service related.

Testimonials From Line 14: Basis of Power

"I joined Alpha Theta Gamma Multicultural Sorority, Inc because I loved what I saw when I first met these Lovely Lavender Ladies. They were multicultural, involved in the community, and extremely genuine. Their dedication to their organization and pillars of Philanthropy, Academics, Diversity, and Leadership really made me feel like this was the only organization for me. One of the main things that caught my eye was that the sisterhood was involved in the betterment of the ENTIRE community. They don't pride themselves just on contributing to one aspect of the community, but in various aspects. Since I have become a sister of ATG, I have found a family away from home and for the first time ever, sisters.  I couldn't have asked for anything else."

"Before this semester, I never once thought about joining a sorority. But after meeting some of the sisters of Alpha Theta Gamma Multicultural Sorority, Inc., I changed my mind. The ladies of ATG are a driven, powerful, and sophisticated group of young women. They encourage one another and push to bring about diversity and multiculturalism on campus. I found myself at home in their presence. I decided to join Alpha Theta Gamma because I wanted to be a part of the strong bond I saw the sister's held. As a driven lady, who is passionate about philanthropy, academics, diversity and leadership, I joined ATG. It's a decision I'll never regret."

"The Alpha Chapter and the very first multicultural sorority at the University of Maryland is what lingered on my mind when I first learned about Alpha Theta Gamma Multicultural Sorority, Inc. I saw the youthfulness of Alpha Theta Gamma as an opportunity to take a sharp turn from the norm and become a part of a unified movement. During my first contact with ATG I felt that they had very welcoming spirits. During all the events, I felt like I was surrounded by very powerful, intellectual, and goal-oriented women, women who I felt were great reflections of me. I wanted to have the opportunity to promote a change alongside women who are willing, supportive, and determined enough to make that change while forming lifetime bonds. This was something I had longed for in my life."

"After speaking to the sisters of ATG, I loved everything that the sorority stood for. ATG goes beyond just the social aspect of it, emphasizing the importance of academics, leadership and philanthropy as well. I love the fact that it is such a well-rounded sorority, where every one of the sisters has a relationship with one another and feels comfortable and safe. Diversity was one of the key decisions as to why I decided to pledge Alpha Theta Gamma. Diversity to me goes beyond what a person looks like, it’s how a person things, what they are engaged in, what they like, among many others. Being able to have conversations with each of the sisters throughout rush, I learned that every sister is unique in their own way and brings a special set of skills to the table. I wanted the chance to be a part of a sisterhood like this, learn from the sisters and also hopefully be able to contribute to the sorority by becoming a sister myself."
