Alpha Delta Theta Sorority

Alpha Delta Theta is the Christian service sorority at High Point University. ADT is comprised of about 40 Christian women from all backgrounds, ages, and majors. The purpose of ADT is to serve others and God and it is ADT’s goal to grow in friendship and faith with one another. Throughout the course of the year, ADT strives to perform service projects, which have in the past included visiting patients at local nursing homes, walking for MS, sending care packages overseas, and lending a hand with Habitat for Humanity. ADT has also donated money to the United Way of High Point and global projects and initiatives such as Heifer International. ADT is also meant to be a group where women with similar spiritual goals can come together and create lasting friendships. Having two retreats annually allows the members to bond and share everlasting memories with one another. ADT has its fair share of game nights, movie nights, and even participates in the intramural Sports here at HPU. The biggest social event of the year is the Yellow Rose Formal held in the Spring.
For more information, please contact the group’s president Kaitlyn Wright,

Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity

Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity based on the three cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and service. Since 1925 when Alpha Phi Omega was founded nationally, the organization has been volunteering in four areas of service: service to the campus, service to the community, service to the nation and service to the fraternity as a whole. The Mu Xi chapter at High Point University was founded in 1958. Members foster unity by collectively completing hundreds of service hours each year on a variety of projects. The fraternity was recognized last year by the Volunteer Center as “Co-service organization of the Year.” Alpha Phi Omega is the largest nationally recognized fraternity in the United States out of all nationally recognized social or service-based greek organizations.

Interfaith United (Interfaith Group)

If depth of one’s religious tradition is important, so is engagement across traditions. High Point University has begun an interfaith project to bring together students across religious traditions to increase dialogue, understanding, and service. The goal is to appreciate true unity by appreciating diversity in action. For more information, contact Rev. Davis ( or Kevin Garrity (
