Alpha Delta Pi holds the distinction of being the first secret society for women and the mother of today’s sorority system. We were founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan College, with the principles of scholarship, leadership, service to others and sisterhood. These principles still guide the policies and programs of our sorority today.
The Beta Epsilon chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was established at the University of South Carolina in 1928.

Finest: Alpha Delta Pi holds its members to high standards and embodies the core principles of scholarship, leadership, service to others, and sisterhood.
Forever: Alpha Delta Pi values the lasting bonds created through the sorority long past the four years of college.
