Happy Founders Day

Our story begins in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, where six incredible women changed the world.

Led by Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald, our founders formed The Adelphean Society for “the mental, moral, social, and domestic improvement of its members.” The Adelphean Society, later renamed Alpha Delta Pi, was the first secret society for college women.

The principles of scholarship, leadership, sisterhood, and service guide over 235,000 women in more than 150 active collegiate chapters and over 150 alumnae associations of Alpha Delta Pi.

WNYADPi is celebrating Founders Day, May 15, with a virtual celebration of sisterhood. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Send “violets” to a sister or two and remind them what they mean to you!
  • Wear your badge or ribbons!
  • Change your social media profile pics/headers to something ADPi! (Here are some ideas...)

Join our Facebook event, follow us on twitter or Instagram, and help spread the spirit of sisterhood!
