Alpha Beta Cornell Delta Delta Delta Alumnae Website

houseAbout Us

We are Cornell University Delta Delta Delta alumnae. Because the Ithaca area doesn’t have a Tri-Delta alumnae group we, the alumnae of Cornell Tri-Delta, maintain the house through the House Corporation and support the Alpha Beta collegians by attending the Circle Degree Ceremony and Pansy Breakfast to welcome our newest alumnae. We visit during reunion, keep in touch with our members (spanning six decades) with a bi-annual newsletter, and by provide funds for capital improvement projects through our annual fund raising efforts.

100-years_logo_teaserOur History

Alpha Beta Chapter was founded at Cornell on April 19th, 1913 and has maintained an active presence on campus ever since. In the Spring of 2013, our chapter celebrated 100 years at Cornell, and did so by welcoming back alumnae for reunions, brunches, and campus activities. The weekend culminated with a black tie event on the Cornell Arts Quad which had over 300 sisters in attendance.  Since the 1980’s, Alpha Beta has occupied our beautiful house on Cornell’s North Campus, located at 118 Triphammer Road. -read more
