For more than 160 years, extraordinary women have called Alpha Delta Pi home. The first secret society for women, Alpha Delta Pi, originally called the "Adelphean Society," forged the way for women in the fraternity system: Alpha Delta Pi is the mother of the modern sorority. Our founding took place at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Ga. - the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Today, more than 225,000 members from more than 200 collegiate chapters throughout the United States and Canada are proud to call Alpha Delta Pi their home! A sorority of firsts, we're also a sisterhood of leaders. Sisters find Alpha Delta Pi a safe place to draw on their unique experiences and make their mark. The sorority offers members tremendous leadership opportunities as chapter officers, through Alpha Delta Pi training programs, and through the enthusiasm of sisters who support their involvement in leadership positions across campus.Like our diamond-shaped pin, ADPi is committed to the four points of:
♦ Values and ethics
♦ High academic standards
♦ Social responsibility Alpha Delta Pi is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference, composed of 26 national collegiate sororities and women’s fraternities. Since 1902, NPC member groups have unanimously agreed to pursue certain procedures and ethics, which lead to orderly and ethical conduct. ADPi has been a highly valued member of the Conference since 1909 and is one of the largest member groups. We abide by all NPC Unanimous Agreements concerning conduct and ethics.
Since 1979, Alpha Delta Pi has served as big sisters for Ronald McDonald House Charities—we love our international philanthropy! RMHC has grown to more than 300 locations around the world, providing a “home away from home” for families of hospitalized children. To date, we have contributed more than million to RMHC and committed countless hours to serving. Even after college, ADPi’s are dedicated members of RMHC boards and continue volunteer. We are so proud of our affiliation with the Ronald McDonald House Charities and of the partnership between our organizations.
At Alpha Delta Pi, we are a sisterhood of friends, a family of individuals, and a home away from home. We embrace every woman's uniqueness. We encourage and support each other's goals and dreams. And we value character above all else. If you're looking for a place to come home to at Franklin & Marshall College, we hope you'll consider ADPi.
