On May 15, 1851, Alpha Delta Pi was founded as the first secret society for women established at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. Wesleyan College, the first college chartered to grant degrees to women in the world, began the remarkable story of Alpha Delta Pi. It all began with a story of a young girl's dream. Eugenia Tucker (Fitzgerald) was just sixteen years old when she left her family home in Laurens County, Georgia, to enter Wesleyan College. Before the end of her first year she would establish the first sorority in the world.
The principles established by the founders of Alpha Delta Pi, has guided members for decades to uphold the finest of standards. Sisterhood, scholarship, leadership, and service to others are the principles that all Alpha Delta Pi women possess.
Our Creed: “My sorority is more than a ritual or a symbol: that it is a way of life, that the principles established by our founders in 1851 are enduring attributes, exemplifying the highest ideal of Christian womanhood.”
The sisterhood of Alpha Delta Pi is a bond that lasts forever. The characteristics that Gamma Pi represents and all the other chapters symbolize around the world, makes us Alpha Delta Pi first finest… forever.
