Happy 125th Founder’s Day, Alpha Xi Delta! While today is your founding date, we know you celebrate your heritage all year long! For those who do not know about Alpha Xi Delta, we put together some history and info behind this awesome organization so you can see how great they are!

Alpha Xi Delta FoundersAlpha Xi Delta was founded on April 17th, 1893, at Lombard College in Galesburg, Illinois by ten like-minded women. These women were visionaries who “Wanted to form a local sorority to encourage personal friendships, promote friendlier contacts with the entire student body, and be of active service to the college.”

With the help of Sigma Nu fraternity, the dreams of these women became a reality! Alpha Xi Delta, was one of ten founding organizations that established the National Panhellenic Conference. Today, Alpha Xi Delta has over 130 active chapters with over 175,000 initiated members! The symbols of this sorority are the BetaXi Bear, pink roses, and the quill. Their colors are yellow & blue and their motto is “The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword.” Autism Speaks is their national philanthropy, and they have proudly raised over $7,000,000 for this incredible organization.

Happy Founder’s Day, Sigma Kappa!

Happy Founder's Day, Sigma Kappa!

Sigma Kappa Founders

We would like to take a moment today to congratulate Sigma Kappa on 143 years of sisterhood!

Sigma Kappa was founded on this day, November 9th 1874, by five lovely women. Mary Caffrey Low (first female student admitted), Elizabeth Gorham Hoag, Ida Fuller, Frances Mann and Louise Helen Coburn attended Colby College, in Waterville, Maine. Colby College was the first college in the New England area to allow women too attend on an equal basis with men students.

These women came together and created an organization that over 143 years would lead to more than 123 collegiate chapters of 168,000+ women. To say their ideals of “One Heart, One Way” were met, is an understatement!

Today we have our special Sigma Kappa Founder’s Day Tee, Mary Low’s Floral Bouquet, available (below)!
