About Us

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.

The Eta Zeta chapter here at Southern Miss was chartered in March of 1985. Since then, our sisters have held numerous leadership positions on campus- SGA Election Commissioner, LSI Involvement Ambassador, and President of the SAA among many others-, volunteered at Ronald McDonald Houses across the United States- the most popular being Jackson, MS; Mobile, Al; and New Orleans, LA-, and they have proven to be a loyal group of women.

Letter From the President:


My name is Mary Case, and I am the chapter President for Eta Zeta! I am a junior Music major with a minor in Political Science from Fairhope, AL. I ran home to Alpha Delta Pi in February of 2020 after spring recruitment. In these two years, ADPi has come to mean so much to me. Through the trials of the COVID-19 pandemic and the daily struggles of college life, ADPi has been a constant source of love and support. No matter what I do or where I go, I know the women of Eta Zeta have my back.

Alpha Delta Pi has also been instrumental in growing my leadership skills. Through ADPi, I have been provided the opportunity to attend various conventions and summits that are targeted towards developing my leadership skills. I have learned skills that will carry me far beyond these four years. I am so incredibly thankful to ADPi and all it's given to me. I know this is a sisterhood that will last a lifetime, and I am honored to be a part of it.

Love and Loyally,

Mary Case
