Alpha Delta Pi first came home to LSU when our Omega Chapter was installed on May 29, 1914. This became our second chapter home in the state of Louisiana and made Alpha Delta Pi the second sorority on campus, joining Kappa Delta. The chapter produced many notable alumnae including the first woman in the history of the university to be elected to an executive position in the Student Government Association.
Other Omega Chapter alumnae have served Alpha Delta Pi's international organization in many ways including Helen Burkhart Prehn, a 1945 initiate who served on our Grand Council and volunteered for the sorority for more than 50 years. Mrs. Prehn passed away in 2013 but it was a long dream of hers that Alpha Delta Pi would one day return to her beloved LSU.
After being a part of the LSU Greek community for more than 70 years, the Omega Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi closed in 1985. However, the Omega alumnae have remained active and celebrated the 100th anniversary of the chapter's founding in June 2014 when more than 200 alumnae gathered in Baton Rouge for a weekend of celebration and sisterhood.
Alpha Delta Pi is very proud of our rich history at LSU. We are thankful for this opportunity to share the history of our Omega Chapter. The founding class of the Omega chapter was welcomed home in Fall 2016 and reinstalled February 12, 2017.
