Alpha Xi Delta Bids 81 New Members!
Alpha Xi Delta is the newest sorority to join the Greek community at American University! Sarah Kawesowatana, Alpha Xi Delta’s Educational Leadership Consultant, arrived on campus earlier this spring to conduct a successful colonization. After tabling on campus; meeting with fraternities, sororities and other campus organizations; and hosting a variety of recruitment events, Alpha Xi Delta welcomed new members and celebrated Bid Day on February 1.

Since Bid Day, our 81 colony women have been busy immersing themselves into Greek life at American University. Alpha Xi Delta helped Phi Mu with their candy gram fundraiser, decorated window letters with Sigma Delta Tau and they are currently participating in Sigma Chi’s Derby Days. The colony will officially be installed in April, making them the 123rd active link in the women’s Fraternity and designating them as the Iota Phi Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta.
