In 1893, ten young women at Lombard College in Galesburg, Illinois shared a vision and a dream of a national organization dedicated to the personal growth of women. Their dream became Alpha Xi Delta, one of the oldest women's fraternities in the United States.
Now a national fraternity with more than 150,000 initiated members, our fraternity is a progressive organization with college chapters and alumnae associations throughout the United States.
Alpha Xi Delta is proud of its rich history and lasting impact on its members and the Panhellenic community. In fact, Alpha Xi Delta's first National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) Chairman wrote the Panhellenic Creed, which all members of NPC still recite on college campuses today.
Through their membership in Alpha Xi Delta, our bold and talented sisters are inspired to realize their potential. These women are genuine, life-long friends who are involved on their campuses and in their communities, and are dedicated to inspiring the lives of others. Alpha Xi Delta provides opportunities for fun, friendship and leadership during a member’s college years and beyond.
The mission of Alpha Xi Delta is to nurture each member. Alpha Xi Delta will nurture unity and responsibility, foster intellectual, professional and personal growth, exemplify the highest of ethical conduct, instill community responsibility, and perpetuate fraternal growth.
Founded in 1929, the Beta Alpha Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is one of 14 National Panhellenic Conference sororities at the University of Texas at Austin. We have a long-standing tradition and model of excellence that we uphold in all that we do.
