Tau Omega local began in April 1966 and became Epsilon Kappa colony in September. In January, the chapter was installed with 47 charter members, 11 of whom were honorary initiates. Alpha Delta Pi was the third national sorority on campus. For years the chapter had a chapter room and a block of rooms in the Panhellenic dorm; however in 1998, the university purchased and converted the Alabama Baptist Children's Home into sorority housing, providing Epsilon Kappa with a chapter house. Former Traveling Collegiate Secretary, Maureen G. Mulvaney wrote a motivational column for The Adelphean for several years and has spoken at Alpha Delta Pi and other Greek conventions. Terry Smith White and former Province Director Harriet Gaylord Parr are long-serving advisors.
