About Us

Alpha Delta Pi is proud to be the first secret society exclusively for women. Founded on May 15, 1851, at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, our sorority is rich with tradition and sisterhood. Alpha Delta Pi sisters strive for excellence in philanthropy, academic performance, and campus leadership. In keeping with our motto, We Live for Each Other, our members have found a place for support, shared values, and personal development. Opportunities abound for the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi, and we look forward to sharing them with you.

Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction of being the first secret society created by women, for women. Founded in 1907, the Zeta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi at Southwestern University is one of the oldest chapters. When our founders began Alpha Delta Pi in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College, they founded it on the principles of scholarship, leadership, service to others, and sisterhood. These principles still guide the policies of our sorority today.

Each member in Alpha Delta Pi aims to be the best version of themselves. Our sisterhood strives to promote, encourage and support every sister in their academic goals, passions and ambitions. Our members are involved far and wide on campus, participating in: 

Student Government Association, Mask & Wig, SU Business Club, SUHU, Student Foundations, Chorale, and many more student organizations.

Through sisterhood activities, community service, leadership workshops, and more, our sorority has created an environment that enriches the life of every member. At Alpha Delta Pi, sisters build meaningful friendships that last a lifetime. In the spirit of our sorority’s values, we are able to form genuine relationships that will last long after our four years.
