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!

Wear your letters on your heart!

Monday, March 3, is International Badge Day. This event, sponsored by the National Panhellenic Conference, celebrates sisterhood and a lifelong commitment to service and community. We hope everyone will show their pride by wearing their badges! 

When I graduated from college, I had my badge made into a ring, thinking I would wear it more that way. It’s a lovely ring, but as I became involved in this alumnae organization, I found myself feeling sad that I didn’t have an actual badge to wear anymore. I was able to track down a new one, though, and I’m looking forward to wearing it on March 3!

On Saturday, WNY ADPi held its first social gathering…we had a lovely time, and we all look forward to meeting those who couldn’t attend for various reasons. Maybe we should wait for better weather? 😉
