Founded by 10 women in 1893, Alpha Xi Delta teaches the value of education as a tool to free oneself. With over 162,000 initiates, and 129 chapters, many women have nurtured personal growth, community responsibility, and fostered intellectual growth. Their vision, “Inspiring women to reach their potential” is a personification of the founder’s original hope; to show that all women, from any walk of life, can become anything they wish to.
