The Alpha Delta Pi Expansion Team, including International President Claire Brown Gwaltney, and two past Presidents, Virginia Rosenberg Stafford and Chris Stecher Dickey, made an expansion presentation to the Drake University Panhellenic in fall 2008. After being selected as the fifth NPC group on campus, Theta Eta was installed with 58 collegiate members. As a colony, they participated in the 100th Anniversary Drake Relay, Greek Week, indoor soccer and softball intramurals. They won "Sing Your Heart Out" and raised the most money during "Cardiac Arrest." During Drake Live Drive, they collected the most donations and received an award from the First Lady of Iowa. After searching for a chapter house for more than a year, the former Phi Delta Theta house was rented and members of Theta Eta moved into the newly renovated house on "Greek Street" in fall 2010.
