Information For Parents

Dear Alpha Xi Delta Parents,

Welcome to Alpha Xi Delta! Your daughter has found a home in an organization that has been inspiring women to realize their potential since 1893, and Alpha Xi Delta strongly believes that you, as parents, are a part of our extended family. Alpha Xi Delta looks forward to playing a strong and positive role in your daughter's college life and beyond, and we hope that you will be an involved and supportive part of this experience.

The concepts to which our founding members dedicated themselves when Alpha Xi Delta was founded in 1893 - a broad, purposeful education; high moral character; selfless service to others; and, most importantly, deep and abiding friendship - still hold true today and are, in fact, the cornerstone of our chapter programming.

During your daughter's college years in Alpha Xi Delta she will make friends to support and motivate her, and she will find guidance in the Alpha Xi Delta alumnae who advise her chapter and serve her house corporation board. She will be mentored by Sisters who emphasize the importance of academics and sound study habits, who model interpersonal cooperation in the face of differing viewpoints and who believe that community service is inherent to being a good citizen. Through active chapter involvement, she will have the opportunity to develop life skills, leadership and organizational management skills, self-awareness, esteem and confidence. And she will be surrounded by other young women who support her through her challenges and celebrate with her when she meets them. In short, Alpha Xi Delta will serve as your daughter's home away from home during college, and we hope she enjoys every minute!

Alpha Xi Delta is proud of the more than 150,000 members who have worn our beloved golden Quill badge, and we are proud that your daughter has been selected, and has elected, to become one of the bold and talented women who shape our organization. We urge you to play an active role in your daughter's Alpha Xi Delta experience and to encourage her to make the most of the many opportunities our sorority has to offer.


Parents play a major role in Alpha Xi Delta throughout their child’s years in college. At the beginning parents have many questions regarding Alpha Xi and the commitment it involves from their daughter. In order to acquaint our new members with Alpha Xi, our New Member Orientation chair and her two assistants help the girls learn all about Alpha Xi Delta. The New Member Orientation Chair and her assistants are great resources for the new members to go to about any questions they may have, ranging from time commitment, to school work, to involvement outside of Alpha Xi Delta. In addition, our other officers can help with more specific issues regarding academics, finances, and other areas. 
 
Each Fall Alpha Xi supports Georgia Tech’s Family Weekend by hosting our own events to show parents the wonderful sisterhood their daughter is a part of. In the past, we have held a family-style dinner, an academic awards banquet, and cheered on the Yellow Jackets together at the football game. We hope you come out and join us this year!
