Alpha Xi Delta

Tau at University of New Hampshire

Letter To Parents

Dear Parents, 

Your daughter has found a home in an organization that has been inspiring women to realize their potential since 1893. 

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 journey.

Your daughter’s Alpha Xi Delta experience:


During her new member period, your daughter will learn a great deal about Alpha Xi Delta - about our history, our programs and, most importantly, our standards and values. She will attend weekly meetings, at least one retreat, personal development programs and social events. She will have a Big Sister to help guide her during this time, and she will develop friendships that will endure throughout her life. Our chapters understand clearly that all this is to be accomplished in an environment free of hazing, for which there is no room in our Sisterhood. At the end of her New Member period, she will be initiated into full Alpha Xi Delta membership through a ceremony that is both beautiful and meaningful.


Through Alpha Xi Delta, your daughter will make friends to support and motivate her. She will find guidance in the Alpha Xi Delta alumnae who advise and assist her chapter. Sisterhood in Alpha Xi Delta is a lifetime.


As part of the collegiate chapter experience, Alpha Xi Delta members participate in several educational and leadership programs designed to inspire them to realize their potential. Through active chapter involvement, she will have the opportunity to develop life skills, leadership and organizational management skills, self-awareness, esteem and confidence.


High academic standards are an integral part of Alpha Xi Delta membership. Your daughter must be enrolled for university credit and maintain a certain grade point average to be an active chapter member. Our volunteers and staff work with each chapter individually to design and provide the resources, expectations and programming specific to what meets their needs through the right mix of study hours, study aids, academic incentives, tutoring and use of campus academic resources. In addition, the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation provides academic scholarships that are awarded annually to Alpha Xi Delta members in good standing, and are based on academic performance, chapter and community involvement, financial need and letters of recommendation.

Again, welcome to our family and GO WILDCATS!
