ABOUT ALPHA DELTA PI
Alpha Delta Pi is proud to be the first secret society exclusively for women. Founded on May 15, 1851, at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, our sorority is rich with tradition and sisterhood. Alpha Delta Pi sisters strive for excellence in philanthropy, academic performance, and campus leadership. In keeping with our motto, We Live for Each Other, our members have found a place for support, shared values, and personal development. Opportunities abound for the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi, and we look forward to sharing them with you.
Not only was Alpha Delta Pi the first sorority founded nationally, our chapter, Epsilon Rho, was also the first sorority on UNLV's campus. Epsilon Rho was charted on May 4, 1968. Since then, we've grown a diverse sisterhood committed to high academic standards, social responsibility, values, and ethics. Our sisterhood is not just for four years, it's for life.
BE THE FIRST
Our tagline, "Be The First" was inspired by our six courageous founders who took it upon themselves to start the first secret society for women. We live out this message as ADPi women and encourage others to do the same in whatever way it means to you.

When I joined a sorority the only thing that I had in mind was that I wanted to be a part of group that allowed me to flourish into the best version of myself. So really, it came as no surprise when I joined ADPi, where we live by “Be The First.” Our founders dared to be the first sorority, at a time when education and personal freedoms came at limited availability to women. Their indifference to what others may have considered unwavering standards and their courage to overcome them, paved the way for women like me to approach life in a similar fashion. Nobody gets to be first without steadfast determination, a whole lot of sacrifice, and meaningful work. I am so proud to be a member of sorority with core values that inspire and hold me responsible to being the first in everything that I do.

To me, "Be The First" means to set the precedence. It is about having the courage to follow your heart, rather than others, and pave your own way. Being the first is being a leader to yourself and to others, and being unique!

Alpha Delta Pi certainly lives up to the expectation of what it means to "be the first." It was something that I couldn't wait to achieve for myself when joining ADPi. A sorority founded by women who were pioneers in creating a progressive group focused on growth, leadership, sisterhood, scholarship, and service. Being the first is about finding the confidence within yourself to be the best person you can be each and every day. By being the first, I step out of my comfort zone to try new things and better myself with the support of my sisters around me. For example, coming in this past Fall, I really wanted to take a leadership position. With the help and encouragement from my big, I can now proudly serve as the VP of Finance this year. Being the example I want to be for other girls who will one day enter this chapter, I am so proud to be a part of the first and finest. In a group filled with people who promote individuality, positivity, and ambition, it's easy to feel like you can do absolutely anything you set your mind to.
