Alpha Delta Pi completed the Eta chapter roll when Eta Omega was colonized at Centre College on November 17, 1999 following a special fall recruitment of upper-class women. Twenty-one women accepted bids and were joined by Ashley Ketner, a transfer student from Eta Phi at Furman, who had heard about the colonization and got involved. The college initially provided a residential home on campus for the chapter, but the chapter later moved to Greek Row. In January 2000, the chapter participated in formal recruitment, with 30 additional bids being accepted. After open recruitment, the charter group, which was installed on March 25 totaled 56. The chapter's leadership involvement was immediately evident - two additional initiations had to be performed for the charter group to accommodate prior leadership commitments of two members. Karen Kibler Blesch, Phi - Hanover, was chapter advisor for many years.
