About Us

Founded May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction of being the first secret society for women in the world, paving the way for others to follow. The Delta Nu chapter was chartered May 16, 1959 at Southeast Missouri State University. ADPi was founded on the principles of scholarship, leadership, service to others, and sisterhood. These principles still guide the policies and programs of our sorority today.
