Founded: 1832 at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York
Motto: Many hands, one heart.
Originally founded as a literary society, the Alpha Delta Phi has evolved into one of the most distinguished of the original American college Fraternities. It has retained its focus on its literary roots, by attracting only the best students at only the best colleges and universities in Canada and the United States.
Bound by a common gender, heritage, traditions and goals, the men of Alpha Delta Phi aim to provide a comprehensive and positive personal growth experience for all undergraduate and alumni brothers. The Alpha Delta Phi experience has helped a disproportionate number of its more than 50,000 lifelong members to become top leaders in industry, government, education and religion.
