We are proud that Alpha Delta Pi was the first secret society for college women. Our founder Eugenia Fitzgerald Tucker started this first secret society named the Adelphean Society at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, May 15, 1851. A few years later, it was renamed to Alpha Delta Pi. To date, Alpha Delta Pi has over 150 collegiate chapters.
The Alpha Eta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was founded at Kansas State University in 1915. We have over 150 women in our chapter, each of whom is committed to Alpha Delta Pi's core values of scholarship, leadership, sisterhood, and service. Every sister knows there will be someone they can count on in our chapter whether it's Caturday, studying, making a sonic run, or exploring the Konza.
Our open motto "We Live for Each Other" is the foundation for our friendship and dedication to this chapter. We hold this close to our hearts, which is shown through our truly genuine sisterhood. From the moment our Alphas open their bid day cards to the day they receive their senior flowers, they are always a part of the family. Joining Alpha Delta Pi is so much more than joining a sorority; it is joining a lifelong bond and community of women that accept you, support you, laugh with you, and help you when you need it most.
We pride ourselves on our symbols. Our mascot is the Lion, nicknamed Alphie. Our official flower is the woodland violet. Our colors are white and azure blue. White symbolizes sincerity and truth. Azure blue symbolizes friendship, the foundation upon which Alpha Delta Pi was founded.
Our badge is the four-pointed diamond, symbolizing strength in character and personality, watching our attitudes toward our fellow-beings, the recognition of the value of high educational standards, and the development of loyalty and faith.
