Hamilton House, or "Ham House" as all DG members love to call it, is one of six sorority residences on campus. Built in 1919, the house was initially home to Alpha Chi Rho fraternity. Due to low membership, the men's fraternity left Lafayette in the 1980s, with Ham House remaining vacant. Once Epsilon Xi affiliated in 1982, DG chapter members proceeded to move into the house that became our home.
If these "Ham House" walls could talk...
Chapter members would tell you that living in the DG house is a life-changing experience as a Delta Gamma. From running to the house on Bid Day, to having dinner together every night, and fostering community in our kitchen, living room, and dining room table, it is undeniable that living in the DG House is a memorable and positive experience for all members. Although we only require one semester of in-house living for our chapter members, women within the chapter often choose to live in the house for many more semesters if granted the chance. This is not a surprise, given that:
You'll never walk into the house without feeling like you're home with 21 of your best friends!
