Membership Expectations

 

Alpha Gamma Delta aims to support the intellectual, physical, and emotional growth of collegiate and alumnae members and in turn asks for a commitment to uphold the ideals and values set forth in the Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose, Fraternity Ritual and Fraternity Mission through service to the Fraternity when called upon and service to the greater global community.

Membership in Alpha Gamma Delta is a privilege, an honor and a call to represent the cherished symbols of the Fraternity to the world. 

 

Hazing Policy

Alpha Gamma Delta cares about each and every one of our members. That is why Alpha Gamma Delta has a zero tolerance policy towards hazing of any kind. Alpha Gamma Delta's official hazing policy is as follows: 

"Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created intentionally, whether on or off Fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule. Such activities and situations include creation of excessive fatigue, physical or psychological shocks; wearing apparel publicly which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and jokes; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; late night sessions which interfere with scholastic activities; and any other activities which are not consistent with the Alpha Gamma Delta Constitution and Standing Rules, The Ritual or Fraternity policy, or the regulations and policies of the educational institution, state or province. Hazing by individual members, new members or chapters of Alpha Gamma Delta is prohibited. For chapters, failure to comply with this Standing Rule shall result in disciplinary action. For individual members and new members, failure to comply with this Standing Rule shall be deemed non-support of the standards of the Fraternity and shall result in disciplinary action."

 

Drug & Alcohol Policy

There shall be no consumption of alcoholic beverages before or at recruitment, new member, ritual related activities, bid day, chapter retreats, formal meetings, initiation, Sisterhood, socials not at a 3rd party vendor, or around potential new members.

All members must adhere to the rules and regulations of the Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority, Rutgers University - New Brunswick, and the city of New Brunswick in regard to the use of alcohol and drugs. Any violation to this policy will be dealt with by the Executive Council. Any pictures or references posted on a public domain implying the use of illegal alcohol, tobacco, or illegal substances will result in an Executive Hearing. Any member caught using illegal drugs or substances will result in an automatic termination.
