Alpha Xi Delta

Alpha Xi Delta, a national Panhellenic sorority, helps women realize their potential. Alpha Xi Delta was established as a chapter at Marian University in November 1995. The Theta Tau chapter, originally known as the local sorority Alpha Sigma Delta, has been active on campus since the winter of 1993. Alpha Xi Delta offers unique opportunities for personal development through participation in local and national activities. The sisters of the Theta Tau chapter have close bonds and enjoy a lifelong sisterhood. Alpha Xi Delta’s national philanthropy is Autism Speaks and the chapter is actively involved in the Fond du Lac community. Alpha Xi Delta participates at the Ronald McDonald House and the Boys and Girls Club.
