Alpha Xi Delta

Beta Xi at Marietta College

New Member Program

We strive to bring women into our Sisterhood who are going to be leaders, contributors and a Sister in every sense of the word. Real Merit and Worth: The New Member Program was designed with this in mind – enhancing leadership skills, setting goals, understanding who Alpha Xi Delta is at her core and providing opportunities for our newest members to create deep, meaningful relationships with each other, the chapter and our national organization. When you join Alpha Xi Delta you will discover who you really are, all with the help of your Sisters.


I am currently a sophomore majoring in Petroleum Engineering with a certificate in Leadership Studies. This year, I am taking on the role of New Member Orientation Chair, and am excited to create a warm welcome for our newest sisters and provide them with a solid foundational knowledge of Alpha Xi Delta’s history and values.
Our Bonds of Sisterhood program helps new members learn about Fraternity and chapter life and the responsibilities of membership. These responsibilities include upholding Alpha Xi Delta ideals and standards, meeting financial obligations, pursuing personal and academic excellence and participating in chapter activities, including a new member retreat and Big-Little Week.
I hope to utilize my previous leadership experience to help our new members grow in courage, graciousness, and peace. My time as a new member was one of the most impactful and fun years of my life, and I’m ready to give back the gift of sisterhood to the future of Alpha Xi Delta!
