About Us

The "Adelphean Society" is noted as being the first secret society for college women. The founding date of 1851 gives ADPi the distinction of being the first sorority.

In 1913, the Adelphean Society changed its name to Alpha Delta Pi. The ADPi founders chose "we live for each other" as their open motto and their avowed purpose was that of bettering themselves morally, mentally and socially. From its inception, Alpha Delta Pi possessed all of the attributes of a secret order including ritual, badge, motto, grip and a password. Alpha Delta Pi's national tradition of excellence gives its sisterhood a sense of strength and unity.

Members of Alpha Delta Pi enjoy working actively with their national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. This unique activity provides a wonderful opportunity for collegians and alumnae to help children throughout the United States and Canada. Since ADPi's national support of the Ronald McDonald House began, sorority members across the country contribute over $100,000 annually to this philanthropy.

Alpha Delta Pi welcomes you to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. We look forward to meeting you!
