From the beginning, Eta Pi has been an innovative and outstanding chapter. Installed on April 21, 1990 with 94 charter members, the speaker at the initiation banquet was Vice President of Student Affairs. Eta Pi has won numerous awards, both within Alpha Delta Pi and on campus, including Diamond Four Point Award many times and Virginia Tech's Cup of Excellence. The chapter was selected to get a new house on the Virginia Tech campus and moved in the fall of 2001. Former international officer Judi Hain Reemsnyder, Gamma Kappa - West Virginia Wesleyan, has served as their advisor for many years. Her father, Jim Hain, served as their Finance Advisor and helped in many ways which earned him the nickname "Grandda."
