Alpha Delta Pi was founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, and holds the distinction of being the first secret society for women. It was founded on the principles of scholarship, leadership, service to others, and sisterhood, all of which are still important to us today and serve as the pillars of our sorority. Here at the University of Delaware, the Theta Delta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was installed on May 3rd, 2008 with 115 founding sisters. Ever since, we have maintained a high standard of excellence. We invite you now to come and discover what our amazing chapter is all about!

In 1979, Alpha Delta Pi became the first and only organization allowed to make the Ronald McDonald House its official, international philanthropy. The Ronald McDonald Houses (RMH) provide care, comfort, and a "home-away-from-home" for seriously ill children receiving treatments nearby; and our chapter is fortunate enough to work closely with RMH in Wilmington. Our sisters frequently visit the house each semester to cook dinner, bake treats, and do fun holiday activities. Our chapter also works hard to raise money for our local philanthropy, the B+ Foundation, which our Sister Ali McDonough helped find. The B+ Foundation works to raise money to help fund research and for the families that are affected by pediatric cancers. We absolutely love our B+ Hero, Drew, and look forward to UDance every spring when the University of Delaware participates in a 12-hour dance-a-thon to raise money for the B+ Foundation.

The ladies of ADPi enjoy getting to know the other Greeks through social events like Mixers, Greek Week, Homecoming, and participating in other chapters’ philanthropy event. The Theta Delta chapter is proud to have been awarded UD Chapter of the Year, Highest GPA, and Gold CAP multiple times. In addition, the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi participate in numerous activities campus-wide. ADPi's can be seen in the student government, on dance teams, sports teams, and in honors societies, just to name a few!

Alpha Delta Pi has become a home away from home for some of the finest women on campus. We look forward to continuing this legacy as we expand our sisterhood.
