In spring 2008, Alpha Delta Pi was petitioned directly by the Methodist University and a local group called the Adelphean Society. The local had researched all NPC groups and decided on Alpha Delta Pi, then chose their local name, set up a similar officer structure, adopted the Ronald McDonald Houses as their philanthropy and utilized the new member online education program. Alpha Delta Pi was installed as the only NPC group on the campus and the 12th Alpha Delta Pi chapter in North Carolina. The charter group had 44 women, including 14 members from the local group and two alumna initiates. They continued their activities on campus, including cheerleading, campus ministries, sports, band, theatre and student government. In fall 2010, the chapter moved into a new house built by the university.
