About Alpha Delta Pi
Founded in 1851, Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction for being the first society founded for college women. Originally named The Adelphean Society, Alpha Delta Pi was created at the Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia by Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald.
Since then, over 235,000 women have come home to Alpha Delta Pi chapters across the country. The qualifications for membership have remained unchanged throughout the years: scholarship, high principles, and true friendship. As a Sorority rooted in the strong values of scholarship, friendship and leadership, they hope that you will enjoy getting to know more about their chapter and learn what it is truly like to be an Alpha Delta Pi. Sisterhood is the foundation of their chapter. Time at USC is precious and Alpha Delta Pi strives to create unbreakable bonds and unforgettable experiences within their chapter through memorable events throughout the year.
USC Alpha Delta Pi is proud to have a large philanthropic presence in our community. Alpha Delta Pi's national philanthropy is Ronald McDonald House, a charity that houses the families of children in hospitals nationwide. These reduced-cost services allow the families to focus on their children's needs and stay near the hospital without worrying about long commutes or expensive hotel bills. Alpha Delta Pi sisters volunteer at our local Ronald McDonald House chapter by cooking meals and meeting families. During our biggest philanthropy of the year, Row Cup, ADPi hosts the fraternities of USC in a soccer tournament to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Money is raised through entry fees, T-shirt and Raffle sales. During the week leading up to the Tournament, Each member in ADPi joins a team for one of the fraternity houses and cheer them on to victory! Our winner of this year's Row Cup was Sigma Chi, and the competition raised over $8,000!
