Delta Delta Delta Fraternity, founded in 1888 at Boston University, began as an organization concerned with the growth and development of college women and has evolved into a leader among sororities. The Alpha Beta Chapter was founded at Cornell University in 1913 and celebrates nearly 100 years of history in Ithaca, New York. Beginning with only a handful of members in 1913, the Alpha Beta Chapter now boasts over 130 active collegiate members, as well as a strong alumnae presence. Among the active members there are many leaders, academic achievements to record, and many inspirational examples of personal growth. Most importantly, in the Alpha Beta Chapter, each sister is guided by and promises to live in accordance with Delta Delta Delta's national motto of sisterhood: "Let Us Steadfastly Love One Another."
