Alpha Delta Pi

Epsilon Nu Chapter

Alpha Delta Pi, originally called The Adelphean Society (from the Greek word for sister), was the first secret society for college women and was founded on May 15, 1851, at the first institution in the world to grant degrees to women: Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia. The women of Alpha Delta Pi carry the open motto "We live for each other" with them daily as they espouse and enact the guiding principles of scholarship, leadership, sisterhood and service.

Epsilon Nu chapter of Alpha Delta Pi, supports the Cleveland Ronald McDonald House. During the year, each sister has the opportunity to visit the house to cook dinners for the families staying there or make crafts with the kids in the house. The chapter supports the Ronald McDonald house with our annual Ron-a-Thon 5k and Fun Run, Rock-4-RMH, Silent Auction, and Pie-a-Pi.
