A Letter from the President
Hello and welcome to our website!
Getting involved with student groups is crucial to your academic journey and your campus experience is about to get so much more fun and social!
One of the things that attracted me to a sorority when I was looking at student groups to join is the fact that Alpha Gam offers you the opportunity to do so many different things within the one group! Not only do we offer academic incentives and scholarships, but we create occasions for you to get involved in philanthropy efforts. You will also gain high-quality leadership experience and best of all, make those college friendships that will be part of your life long after graduation!
I decided to go attend recruitment events in fall 2018, after a year of intro classes that were challenging to make many friends in. As soon as I met the girls from Alpha Gam, I knew these were my people! They had that same balance of passion for academics and love of having a good time among friends that I had. I learned more about the ways they serve our Winnipeg community and knew I had found my home on campus. The sisterhood events allowed me to do fun things with the same girls regularly, and before I knew it, they had become my best friends.
Our chapter is full of unique and lovely students from every faculty on campus and from all around the world who are proud of our empowering history since 1904. Because we do so much together, such as getting together between class for coffee or going to each other’s’ homes for game night, we get to make those genuine bonds that bring us close together and make us a campus family. I love going to our charity events such as putting together care packages or holding a bake sale, because I get to do something meaningful with my favourite people. Our signature event is our classic country-club tea party we host as a fundraiser. It is a fun time of dressing up and having a good time for a good cause.
Being on our executive council in a number of officer positions has brought me out of my shell and empowered me to lead. We are held to wonderful standards and given the tools to learn how to run an entire chapter in the most professional way possible. It has also given me the opportunity to travel! I attended our Officer Academy in Los Angeles and Indianapolis with young leaders from all over Canada and the U.S.!
Our chapter calendar is full of fantastic events, and we can’t wait to meet you and for you to get to know us during our recruitment events! We host open parties and activity events every winter and fall, which are a great way to come out and find out how you can get involved.
