Alpha Xi Delta
Inspiring Women to Realize Their Potential
Alpha Xi Delta (ΑΞΔ or A-“Zee”-D) was founded in 1893 at Lombard College in Galesburg, Illinois and is one of the oldest women’s fraternal organizations in the United States. Since its founding, the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta have been dedicated to inspiring women to realize their potential through personal growth. Our national colors are the beautiful double blue and gold, our mascot is BetXi Bear, and our flower is the pink rose. The Alpha Xi Delta badge is the quill to symbolize our open motto of “the pen is mightier than the sword.” Having healthy and open communication with one another as well as listening to one another is a very important piece of our values. The group’s philanthropy is the Kindly Hearts Campaign. The sisters participate in and host many different philanthropy events throughout the year to raise money and support the students in the ASAP program at Alma High School.
Welcome to Alpha Xi Delta at Alma College!
The Zeta Upsilon chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Alma College was founded in 1986; before that, we were the local sorority, Alpha Zeta Tau. Our women on Alma College’s campus are involved in many different areas—if you name an activity, we most likely have a sister participating in it. One of our chapter’s greatest sources of pride is the work we do for our philanthropy.
