Alpha Delta Pi was founded at Wesleyan College on May 15, 1851. As the first college in the world to grant degrees to women, Wesleyan also produced the world’s first secret society for women.

On the day of its establishment, founder Eugenia Tucker wrote a diary entry detailing the goals of the new society. She wrote, “The society shall be called Adelphean, and shall have for its object the mental, moral, social, and domestic improvement of its members.”

Along with five fellow founders- Ella Pierce Turner, Octavia Andrew Rush, Elizabeth Williams Mitchell, Sophronia Woodruff Dews, and Mary Evans Glass, Eugenia Tucker sought to establish a sisterhood based on loyalty and friendship.

Soon after joining the National Panhellenic Conference, in 1913 the organization adopted the Greek letters Alpha Delta Pi as its official title.

Alpha Delta Pi’s history at Baylor began in the fall of 1980. 70 members from the Alpha Zeta chapter at SMU and Gamma Chi chapter of TCU came to Baylor to help colonize the new charter. Ninety charter pledges were chosen, signifying the largest charter pledge class in Alpha Delta Pi history, and establishing the 130th ADPi chapter, here on Baylor’s campus.

Now, almost 20 years after colonization at Baylor, Zeta Chi chapter still strives to uphold the principles established by our founders.

Through dedication to service in the Baylor and Waco communities, strong academics, and even stronger bonds of friendship, Zeta Chi chapter looks upon the ideals of the founding members and continues to strive for leadership and excellence in our endeavors, and to build lasting friendships and strong moral character.  

In order to build lasting friendships with current members and alumni, the Zeta Chi chapter hosted the Founder's Day Tea in their chapter room.  Active Zeta Chi members met with Alpha Delta Pi alumni while enjoying tea and other special treats.

Baylor University celebrated their 75th annual Diadeloso!  Our sisters represented Zeta Chi in events such as tug-of-war, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and the Dia Queen competition! 

Jessica and a few other sisters volunteered at TWO ADPi booths raising money for both Alex's Lemonade Stand and the Ronald McDonald House.   

In addition to participating in competitions, student organizations at Baylor have booths in which students can play games and learn about each group.  This year, the Zeta Chi chapter had two booths at Dia!  Students could enjoy a cup of lemonade and play musical chairs to raise money for both of Alpha Delta Pi's philanthropies.
