Rescheduled for April 16-17, 2021 – Zeta Chi Chapter 40th Anniversary Celebration Weekend

Join the fun April 16-17, 2021 in WACO, TX where it all began!

 DO NOT MISS THIS FUN SISTER WEEKEND in WACO!

 Friday,  – 6:00 pm at the Baylor Club at McLane Stadium – Happy Hour hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and SISTERS! (registration required, cash bar)

 Saturday,  – We’re planning a full day of visits, ceremonies, dinners and more… stay tuned for all the details.

  • Day time details coming soon!
  • Evening Dinner and Catching Up with ADPi Sisters from All 40 years! We’ll be at the Lee Lockwood Library. It’s going to be a fun night!

We are rescheduling our weekend together!

We are living in a time when our motto means more… We live for each other!  As we face a challenging time ahead, know that we are thinking about you and praying that  you and your family are safe and healthy. As you may have guessed the pandemic affects our Zeta Chi April Celebration Weekend plans with 90 alumnae sisters registered and more committed to attending.

We are not canceling! We have paid money to vendors and it’s not possible for the ZX Alumnae Association to shoulder an entire cancellation of the event. 

We are rescheduling AGAIN for next spring,
APRIL 16-17, 2021.

(There’s no home football game. It might be Silobration weekend too… but that’s not public yet.) We are hoping to BE THE FIRST to reschedule a fun time away. If you cannot attend on the new dates, we will refund your registration on a case by case basis.

We know that you understand. We can’t wait to be together in a world where it’s okay to hug, throw diamonds and kick up our heels! Please be patient with us as the Saturday daytime events are being adjusted. So, it’s not gone, we just have to wait a little longer.

If we didn’t answer your question in our comments below, please reach out to us. Reach out anyway to just say ‘hello’ too! 

What should you do If you were already registered for April?

  • Cancel your hotel room for the October date. We have contacted the Courtyard & Hilton Garden Inn – they canceled our group, but you need to individually cancel your reservation. For other lodging, contact them directly.
  • Reschedule your flights. For airline travel, we suspect you can change easily as well with this advanced notice and the global situation.  There may even be some really great deals to travel this fall!
  • Book your new hotel room NOW (BE THE FIRST to get a room! ).  We are working on other options, but here are two:
    • 1700 South 2nd Condos on Speight (sleep 4 comfortably, 6 on the couch)  https://1700south2nd.com/ We have stayed here many times, and it’s wonderful. They have 10 condos on campus, so let’s fill the whole complex. Find a group and share the cost, $170 per night.  Email ashley@1700south2nd.com with your name, cell phone number, and the email address you’d like the invoice emailed to.  Please reference the dates 10/2-10/4 and the Alpha Delta Pi Chapter Anniversary to get the 10% discount. ACT FAST! BE THE FIRST!
    • If you want a bigger group together, Waco Vacation Rentals has houses that can accommodate 4+. https://wacovacationrentals.com/ 
  • If you registered and cannot attend the new dates,  please email us at adpi.zxaa.president@gmail.com. Let us know you’re not available and have to cancel. We’ll be sad, but will be sure you get refunded as soon as possible.

What can you do until April?

  • If you missed the t-shirt order, we’ll offer that again.
  • Go through your boxes and closets to find ΑΔΠ photos and mementos. We will have decade tables to display goodies.
  • Scan or photo your pics and send them to include in the slide shows.
  • Save your pop tabs from all those quarantine snack cans (hit them with some sanitizer or boil them).
  • Reach out to those sisters you were planning on hugging and start the conversation now.
  • Call sisters that might not know about the event. 
  • Help us find any lost sisters so they know we are still here.
  • Share any ideas that you have…now that we’re all thinking differently about what interactions look like!

What do you have to look forward to:

  • Visiting the lion in Cameron Park
  • Shopping in our very own ADPi pop-up shop from PicsNGifts  (they’re donating 10% of profits to our philanthropy)
  • Meeting new sisters
  • A philanthropy project
  • Recharging your sister friend batteries

Look for a Zeta Chi virtual get togethers this fall… stay posted! The latest news always goes to Facebook groups first.

Thank you for your support and encouragement! Special thanks to the committee of 18 sisters who have been and will continue to work behind the scenes to make this event special for each of you.  #wlfeo

Be sure that we have your email address and contact information!


ADPi Celebrating 40 years at Baylor University

The alumnae sisters of the Zeta Chi Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi are honored to be celebrating 40 years on the Baylor Campus. Since November 15, 1980, the Zeta Chi Chapter has been proud to be a part of the panhellenic community at Baylor University.

You can read more about the beginnings of the Zeta Chi Chapter from it’s founding president, https://www.bayloradpialumnae.org/the-beginning-of-alpha-delta-pi-at-baylor-university/.

Originally called the Adelphean Society, Alpha Delta Pi is the first secret society for women in the world and forged the way for women in the fraternity system. We were founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan Female College – the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women.

Founder Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald was just sixteen years old when she left her family to attend Wesleyan College. At such a young age and during a time when it was rare for women to go to college, she recognized the importance of women coming together for personal development and improvement. She and her five closest friends founded the Adelphean Society. In 1909, she wrote a letter to our Alpha chapter in which she states, “Whatever I have done worth remembering, I know that the founding of our society is one of them.”

We couldn’t agree more.
