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. Founded in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, Alpha Delta Pi was the first secret society for women.

“Freshman year, I chose Alpha Delta Pi because I felt a breath of fresh air every time I walked through the doors. I didn’t feel like I had to put on an act or try hard to be someone I wasn’t. I could be around the women I talked to within moments of knowing them. I could see how much every person cared about one another and how genuine their friendships were. I saw opportunities for personal growth and genuine friendships.

The reason I continue to choose ADPi every single day is because never once did I feel like what I felt during recruitment wasn’t true. I have never felt so loved by so many people, inspired to get involved and push myself, or had such a large support system of women who only wanted the best for me. I know that I will feel a sense of belonging and home whenever I see an ADPi on campus, at the house, in the classroom, or out and about. This place is truly special; I can’t imagine my life without it!” – Ava S. Alpha Class 2021


“I chose ADPI because of the amazing girls behind the blue door. During recruitment week, I had no idea where I belonged, but after walking into the ADPI house I knew instantly that’s where I belonged! Everyone is so welcoming, kind, generous, silly, outgoing, and always willing to help one another out. It’s a true sisterhood. I am extremely thankful that I found my forever home in ADPI and will forever hold this sisterhood in my heart.”- Zoe W. Alpha Class 2023


“I came to Iowa State not knowing a single student. Within my first semester, Adpi introduced me to my best friends who I have made the most amazing memories with in the next 4 years. I rarely missed home, not because I didn’t love where I came from, but because I felt so at home here.” -Erin. K Alpha Class 2016


“Before starting recruitment, I had no clue what I wanted to gain from being in a sorority. It wasn’t until I met the women behind the blue door that I realized I found things I have always been searching for: genuine friendships, character growth, and lifelong memories. After visiting Alpha Delta Pi, I knew that I had found a place where I can be unconditionally supported in my growth while making lifelong memories with the most genuine women I have ever met! I am so blessed to have found this in the place I now get to call home and that I have become one of the women behind the blue door!” -Meredith O. Alpha Class 2019
