About Us


The words which are represented in the Symphony are part of the every day values we strive to live by to become better friends, leaders and citizens.

These things do we earnestly desire:

A clear vision of life, that with gracious and kindly hearts we may share both joy and sorrow and bring into living reality the Sisterhood of women.

An appreciation of real merit and worth, steadfastness of soul, that without bitterness or defeat we may encounter misfortune and with humility meet success.

These things, O Lord, help us to instill within our hearts that we may grow in courage and graciousness and peace.

The Coat of Arms
The Coat of Arms of Alpha Xi Delta consists of a shield supported by two griffins. In the golden band across the center of the shield is the Quill. Three conventional roses are at the top of the shield, and a broken sword is in the lower portion of the shield. Above the shield on the knight’s helmet is a twist of ribbon in alternating blue and gold, and a blossomed rose.

The colors of Alpha Xi Delta are double blue (light and dark blue) and gold.

The Fraternity flower is the pink rose, as chosen by our Founders.

The Quill, which is the badge worn by initiated members of Alpha Xi Delta, represents our open motto “The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword.”

The Fraternity adopted Al Fuzzie teddy bear as a mascot in 1974. BetXi Bear mascot was adopted in 1989.

Alpha Xi Delta National History

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.

The timeless ideals envisioned by Alpha Xi Delta’s Founders remain constant throughout the years, inspiring pride in each member to pursue individual excellence. 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.

Since Alpha Xi Delta’s founding over 119 years ago, we continue to enrich the lives of women throughout the world by emphasizing the ideals our Founders instilled in our Fraternity: sisterhood, leadership, knowledge and service to our communities. We fully embrace these ideals and the opportunity to bring them to college women. Because of our founders, Alpha Xi Delta continues to inspire countless bold and talented women to realize their potential.
