Information For Parents

Dear Alpha Xi Delta Parents,

Welcome to Alpha Xi Delta! Your daughter has found a home in an organization that has been inspiring women to realize their potential since 1893, and Alpha Xi Delta strongly believes that you, as parents, are a part of our extended family. Alpha Xi Delta looks forward to playing a strong and positive role in your daughter's college life and beyond, and we hope that you will be an involved and supportive part of this experience.

The concepts to which our founding members dedicated themselves when Alpha Xi Delta was founded in 1893 - a broad, purposeful education; high moral character; selfless service to others; and, most importantly, deep and abiding friendship - still hold true today and are, in fact, the cornerstone of our chapter programming.

During your daughter's college years in Alpha Xi Delta she will make friends to support and motivate her, and she will find guidance in the Alpha Xi Delta alumnae who advise her chapter and serve her house corporation board. She will be mentored by Sisters who emphasize the importance of academics and sound study habits, who model interpersonal cooperation in the face of differing viewpoints and who believe that community service is inherent to being a good citizen. Through active chapter involvement, she will have the opportunity to develop life skills, leadership and organizational management skills, self-awareness, esteem and confidence. And she will be surrounded by other young women who support her through her challenges and celebrate with her when she meets them. In short, Alpha Xi Delta will serve as your daughter's home away from home during college, and we hope she enjoys every minute!

Alpha Xi Delta is proud of the more than 162,000 members who have worn our beloved golden Quill badge, and we are proud that your daughter has been selected, and has elected, to become one of the bold and talented women who shape our organization. We urge you to play an active role in your daughter's Alpha Xi Delta experience and to encourage her to make the most of the many opportunities our sorority has to offer.

A Note from Your Daughter's Local Chapter:

We want to start by saying thank you for investing in your daughters college experience by supporting her choice to go Greek. We are thrilled to have her as part of our organization and cannot wait to see her grow.  Over the next few years she will develop friendships, gain new experiences, and develop into the successful woman that will one day take on the world.  The bonds that she will create while in the Zeta Tau chapter will be with her for the rest of her life.

Your daughter will get the opportunity to be involved on campus, as well as our local community, through events like our "Amaxing Challenge," a fundraiser we put on to help raise money for our philanthropy Autism Speaks.  In the past we have also done events like "Brother Wolf's Howl-O-Ween Walkathon" and are looking to work with the Elephant Sanctuary in the near future.

As a member of Alpha Xi Delta your daughter will also have the opportunity to hold many different kinds of leadership positions.  She will also enjoy activities with sisters like our semesterly retreat, mixers with other organizations on campus, and our biweekly greek leadership sessions.

If you have any further questions for us we would be happy to answer them.  You can find our contact information under the contact tab at the top of our page.

Thank you!
