We are the first & finest
Founded in 1851, Alpha Delta Pi was the first secret society for college women. Since then, over 235,000 women at more than 200 university chapters have found their home in ADPi. The values formed in 1851 are as important to our members in 2017 as they were at our founding: a commitment to service, high academic standards, and lasting friendships.
We got it from our founders
Alpha Delta Pi was founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, GA. The original name of the sorority was "The Adelphean Society." Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald founded Alpha Delta Pi along with five of her closest friends. These women, along with thirteen others, made up the first chapter of Alpha Delta Pi.
We're celebrating 111 years of sisterhood
Founded in 1906 at the University of Texas at Austin, Delta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was the first active chapter of ADPi in the state of Texas and the fourth in the country, making us the current oldest active chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. We are one of the six oldest sororities at UT. You have to admit, we look pretty good for 111!
