As members of the Greek community, Alpha Delta Pi is proud to welcome those who want to enhance their college experience as part of something bigger. Come home to Alpha Delta Pi and find women who are true and loyal, just like our blue and white colors represent. ADPi sisters are leaders and visionaries. We are SGA senators, artists, student athletes, and scholars. We are committed to sisterhood, values and ethics, high academic standards, and social responsibility. We committed to those when we established the first secret society for collegiate women in 1851 at the first university chartered to grant degrees to women. We are committed to them still today.
A Word to Potential New Members:
In 1851, Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald invited 5 of her best friends to join her and help establish the world’s first secret society for collegiate women. This small club of 6 women would continue to grow each year at Wesleyan College to become the first sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. Like our founders before us, the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi have been characterized as women of “firsts”. For more than 160 years, Alpha Delta Pi has sought strong, courageous, and intelligent women to pioneer and pave the way for future generations of women in the United States and Canada, and the Epsilon Eta chapter at Mississippi State is no different.
In August 2019, our chapter is seeking to continue its growth and continue moving forward by recruiting an Alpha class of bright, inspiring, and sincere women who exhibit all of the values listed in our creed. Our chapter aims to contribute to the advancement and achievement of Mississippi State University, while simultaneously having fun and creating lifelong memories within a circle of genuine sisterhood. We look forward to meeting each and every one of you and I hope you all have the same rewarding experience that Greek life has given me at Mississippi State.
Mary Grace Payne: Recruitment & Marketing VP
Coming to MSU as an out of state student was in the simplest of terms, terrifying. I had no friends or family in the entire state of Mississippi, and I was already feeling some major culture shock at orientation. Going through recruitment was something I'd never though I would do, but I am so glad that I did. My ADPi sisters welcomed me with open arms and embraced my differences. Ever since I ran home on bid day, I have been so thankful that I was able to find a home and a family in a place where I originally felt so alienated.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be this year's Formal Recruitment Chair because I get to help other girls find a home just like I did. I can not wait to show off all ADPi has to offer during the week of recruitment, and of course, I am so excited to meet all of the potential new members and see our sisterhood grow on bid day!
