Alpha Omicron Pi was founded on January 2, 1897 in Barnard College of Columbia University in New York. Our four founders are Jessie Wallace Hughan, Helen St. Clair Mullan, Elizabeth Heywood Wyman, and Stella George Perry.
“The object of this fraternity shall be to encourage spirit of fraternity and love among its members; to stand at all times for character, dignity, scholarship, and college loyalty; to strive for and support the best interests of the college and universities in which chapters are installed; and in no way to disregard, injure or sacrifice those interests for the sake of the prestige of the fraternity or any of its chapters.”
The Alpha Delta chapter was formed at the University of Alabama on February 25, 1967. Seventeen outstanding girls came together to bring a sorority to the UA campus that would continue to uphold the mottos of Alpha Omicron Pi. All of these same virtues are still held true to the hearts of the Alpha Delta members. The symbols and mottos were carefully thought out and created by the original founding members of the sorority.
