A little about us:
Xi Turns 100 This Year!
We are ecstatic to announce that we will be celebrating our centennial the weekend of March 21-23 2014. Being the very first sisterhood and being the best 100 year later deserves a celebration and we are ready to have it. Everyone and anyone is invited and we hope to see every ADPi in attendance. Check out our centennial website and Facebook page to stay updated on all of the details and events!
A two week long "There's No Place like Home" recruitment filled with red heels and awesome conversations laid the perfect ground work for our beyond successful Bid Day celebration. Our "How Sweet it is to be an ADPi" themed Bid Day welcomed our 41 new Alphas with many pounds of candy and a tower of cupcakes! Recruitment couldn't of gone any better than it did and we are already getting excited and prepared for 2014 recruitment this fall!
Facts on the very first sisterhood:
The first diamond-shaped badge was worn by the Adelpheans in 1852. Stars were not included on this first badge, but it did have a monogram of the Wesleyan pin attached to the badge by a link chain, thus forming a guard. The Diamond symbolizes the strength and value of friendships. The diamond represents purity, and the four points represent the symmetry of a balanced life.
"We Live For Each Other"
As a symbol of beauty and strength, the lion serves as Alpha Delta Pi's mascot. Within each member, the lion sounds strong and strides confidently forward to pursue her goal. The lion represents the strength of mind and the strength of character of each sister in Alpha Delta Pi.
Azure blue and white are the official colors of Alpha Delta Pi. Blue is symbolic of friendship, the basic spirit upon which Alpha Delta Pi is founded. White symbolizes sincerity and truth. Alpha Delta Pi seeks these qualities in all its members.
The Woodland Violet.
Our Coat of Arms
Elizabeth Moseley Coles, who was elected national president at the first grand convention, was responsible for having the coat of arms designed. Another sister of Alpha chapter, Agnes Chapman, is given credit for the actual design of our coat of arms. Symbolism from our ritual and our Alpha pin were combined in the coat of arms, and the design originally had a background of violets. In 1919, the convention body voted to make changes and the present design was accepted.
