THE FIRST SORORITY

On May 15, 1851, Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald and five of her closest friends founded the Adelphean Society, which later became Alpha Delta Pi, and the first sorority in existence.

Founded in Macon, Georgia, the members selected the official colors of Azure Blue for friendship, white for truth, and the official flower, the Woodland Violet. They also chose their open motto: "We Live for Each Other." Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction of being the first secret society for women.

In 1906, the design of the current diamond-shaped badge with two stars and clasped hands was selected, and in 1919, the present crest design, including a lion, was approved at the Grand Convention. The Beta Alpha chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was established at Indiana University in 1926. Nationally, Alpha Delta Pi is ranked in the top ten for the most active members.

This past semester Beta Alpha achieved the highest GPA on campus in the Panhellenic and Greek community and won numerous awards at Grand Convention. Grand Convention is an event that occurs every two years to bring Alpha Delta Pi sisters together from all over the nation to celebrate our sisterhood.

Beta Alpha participates in annual alcohol awareness programs and even held their very own presentation titled “Make Good Decisions." Beta Alpha invited guest speakers from the Indiana Youth Services Association to present at this event that was attended by every Panhellenic chapter on campus.

The sisters of Alpha Delta Pi at Indiana University look forward to reaching greater heights with the conclusion of each successful semester!
