Alpha Xi Delta

The women of Nu Chapter are highly involved on campus and within our community. We are extremely dedicated to leadership, sisterhood, and academic excellence. AXiD is proud of the legacy established by our founders, and we continue to offer women opportunities to realize their potential. The experience of being a sister of Alpha Xi Delta has life long values, beginning as collegians and continuing as alumnae after graduation. With service, social, and sisterhood events, we receive the college experience of a lifetime.

Progress: 53/96

While DZ has stronger areas, like for instance in sustainable sourcing, we still have significant progress to make, most notably in Community Connections and water reduction!

Active Green Chair Position

 We have compost containers in all of the large bathrooms and one in the kitchen. Composting in the bathrooms seems to end up in the right bins, but we don’t have recycling in the bathroom. In the kitchen we have posters telling people what goes in which container and people seem to respect that.
