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:

Hi friends! My name is Madi Maisel and I am a senior Speech Pathology Major from Ridgeland, MS! I ran home to Alpha Delta Pi after primary recruitment in 2017. Ever since then, Alpha Delta Pi has been such an important piece of my Southern Miss story. I have met some of my closest friends and have grown not only personally, but in my leadership style as well. Alpha Delta Pi helped me find people who inspire, challenge, and encourage me. Having people like this around me makes the sorority house more than just a place, but a home away from home. I have had the opportunity to serve in several officer and executive positions. I have loved serving as chapter President, and I know that this experience will continue to serve me after college. I’m truly grateful for Southern Miss and Alpha Delta Pi for giving me so much. I can’t imagine where I’d be without the genuine and supportive sisterhood of Alpha Delta Pi. I know this sisterhood is a life-long experience and not only during collegiate years. Although I think my time at Southern Miss went way too quickly, I am thankful that Alpha Delta Pi will be with me wherever I go!

Love and Loyally,
Madi Maisel- Chapter President
