We have a strong chapter here at Auburn, with a rich history of excellence.
Established in 1851, Alpha Delta Pi is committed to each other, our values, ethics, high academic standards, and social responsibility. We are a diverse group of women who make a difference in each other's lives, in the community, and on our campus. We treasure the history of this organization that we are privileged to be a part of.
first. finest. forever.
First... Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction of being the first secret society in the world for college women. We were founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, GA. The original name of the sorority was the "Adelphean Society". The word "Adelphean" is derived from the Greek word meaning sister.
Finest... ADPi's are bright, fun, and lovely young women who share the bond of sisterhood. The qualifications for membership have remained throughout the years: scholarship, high principles, and true friendship. Here at Auburn, we uphold these fine characteristics that make an ADPi so special. Beta Omega was installed on October 24, 1942 by Grand President Mrs. Sidney Standard as the 62nd chapter of Alpha Delta Pi, and was the 7th national sorority to come to Auburn.
Forever...Within two years of the first chapter at Wesleyan Female College, four new chapters were installed. The chapter roll has continued to grow since that time, with 155 active chapters today on various college campuses. In 2011, we were the first sorority to celebrate 160 years of sisterhood.
