Historical Note

Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma are jointly run freshman honor societies at the University of Texas at Austin, known collectively as ALDPES. Phi Eta Sigma was originally founded at the University of Illinois in 1923 as a freshman men’s scholastic society. The following year in 1924, Alpha Lambda Delta was created as its counterpart for freshmen women. Both organizations became coeducational in the 1970s.
