Alpha Xi Delta (Women's) Fraternity

Members of Alpha Xi Delta

About Alpha Xi Delta

In 1893, ten women at Lombard College in Galesburg, Illinois, shared a vision and a dream of a national organization dedicated to the personal growth of women. Their dream became Alpha Xi Delta, one of the oldest women’s sororities in the United States. The ideals envisioned by the founders have remained constant throughout the years, inspiring each member to pursue individual excellence. These ideals include sisterhood, leadership, knowledge and service to our communities. Now a national fraternity with more than 150,000 initiated members, the Fraternity is an organization with 119 college chapters and alumnae associations throughout the United States.

Alpha Xi Delta inspires women to realize their potential by providing opportunities for sisterhood, leadership, knowledge and service. The national women's fraternity has over 150,000 initiated members and has chapters on 119 college and university campuses. Dedicated to leadership, service, and academic excellence, the women of Alpha Xi Delta are involved on campus and within our community. We are proud of the legacy our founders have established as we continue to offer women opportunities to realize their potential. The experience of being a sister of Alpha Xi Delta has life long value beginning as collegians and continuing as alumnae after graduation. With service, social, and sisterhood events, we have the college experience of a lifetime!
