Gamma Sigma Delta was initiated at the Ohio State University on December 1, 1905 under the name Delta Theta Sigma. The name of the organization was changed in 1913 to “The Honor Society of Agriculture, Gamma Sigma Delta.” Since 1917, the Society has been strictly honorary in character with election to membership limited to juniors, seniors, graduate students, alumni, and faculty of the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Veterinary Medicine.
