ALPHA XI DELTA – A WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY TRADITION
On a rainy and windy day in April of 1991, Alpha Xi Delta’s Theta Eta Chapter at Western Michigan University was founded. The chapter started as a local sorority called Kappa Gamma and because of their successes, were invited by our National Headquarters to join the ranks as an Alpha Xi Chapter. With staff from National Headquarters present, 71 women were initiated that day. Alpha Xi Delta sisters from the Phi chapter at Albion College, Gamma Zeta at Eastern Michigan University, Gamma Sigma at Hillsdale College and Alpha Epsilon at the University of Michigan were in attendance. The new Alpha Xi's went on to win a chapter total award the following year, a chapter quota award in their first formal recruitment, and an award for academic achievement.
Many generations of sisters have been through our chapter. We have had a very rich history and are continuing to grow stronger every year. We set the bar high with participation and philanthropy dollars and take time to kick back and socialize at our formals and other events. We hope to look back one day and remember our days here, how much they changed our lives, and the beautiful legacy we've played a role in building.
