Epsilon Nu

Ashland University, Ashland, Ohio, April 29, 1967

Alpha Delta Pi celebrated its 116th anniversary by installing its 116th chapter, Epsilon Nu. Fifty members of the oldest local, Pi Kappa Pi, became the first NPC group on campus, and were initiated at the Seminary Chapel. In the early 1970s, the four sororities each had a small university-owned house on the edge of campus, but due to university cutbacks, the provided housemothers and cleaning services were eliminated. After meetings with Grand Council, Epsilon Nu became the first house with no housemother. Years later, the houses were removed to make room for a parking lot, and Epsilon Nu moved to a dorm. Epsilon Nu has won the overall scholarship award more times than any other group, and they have received the Golden Lion Award four times. Charter member Connie Gallina Hoffman worked with the chapter for many years and served as an international officer. Other alumnae with long records of service include Dani Sparks, Meggan Dougherty Weaver, Tonya Houser, Becky Bingham Barnes, Maureen McLaughlin Ater, Jennifer Polley Webb and Jill Hout Jarvis.
