Alpha Delta Pi sisters everywhere have the unique privilege of being a part of the "first and finest" secret society for women. ADPi was founded right here in Macon, GA in 1851, and sisters of Mercer’s Beta Sigma chapter have the opportunity to visit the various sites that our founders frequented. On Mercer’s campus, the chapter excels. You will find ADPi sisters involved in every facet of campus life. From athletics to chorus, and from SGA to Admissions, ΑDPi sisters pride themselves in being active members of Mercer’s community. We boast sisters from a wide variety of academic disciplines and hold the award for Highest Panhellenic GPA for 10 consecutive years. Beyond Mercer, ADPis can be seen working and volunteering at many different places, including our national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. The Beta Sigma chapter is lucky enough to have a Ronald McDonald House only a few blocks away from campus, and we love to drive over and meet the families, cook them dinner, and help clean around the house a bit. Helping to maintain these families' “home away from home” while their children are sick is something we are honored to have the privilege to do. When our sisters have free time, we can be found spending time together on the intramural fields, at one of our formals or mixers, attending Mercer’s athletic events, or relaxing on the ADPi porch. To us, Alpha Delta Pi goes far beyond our four years at Mercer. Through the chaos of college and life, we always know that we have our sisters to rely on and trust to help us become the best versions of ourselves.

More than 100 years ago, eleven influential women founded Alpha Gamma Delta. United by more than Greek letters, these women established a sisterhood that grows stronger each year, fueled by our Purpose. Today, nearly 200,000 women have been initiated into Alpha Gamma Delta International Fraternity. Mercer’s Gamma Iota chapter was chartered February 27, 1960. Alpha Gam sister Margaret Toy pioneered the first Meals on Wheels, and today, we proudly partner with both Meals on Wheels and Feeding America to serve our philanthropy, Fighting Hunger. This is especially important to the Macon-Bibb community, where food insecurity rates are at 23.2%. Alpha Gams participate in an annual Week of Service, Backpack Buddies, card making, and our campus-wide events like “Mac-n-Cheese with AGD” and our “How Sweet It Is” dessert bar. Our ticket sales and fundraising support our chapter’s title of Jewel Status, an International award we have held for nineteen years! Where else will you find us? Our sisters are Admissions team members, intramural stars, Peer Advisors, Bearly Civil Engineers, MerServe members, fitness class instructors, and even dancing with the Colorguard on gameday. We are study buddies, along with our Academic Excellence Team, keeping members updated on available scholarships, study abroad, tutoring assistance, job interview training, internships, and career counseling. Our chapter is a proud recipient of the “Strive for Pi” Award from International Headquarters, which recognizes chapters that reach a cumulative GPA of 3.14 or higher. Every Spring, our chapter celebrates with an Academic Achievement Banquet recognizing the success of our sisters. And we love to take a break with some socializing, too. Our Skate and Date night, Galentine’s Day, Hockey Night at Macon Mayhem, and Tacky Sweater Gift Exchanges are most memorable. We are the title holder for MU Miracle Penny Wars, and we have won multiple Greek Week and Homecoming events. Our chapter has several Greek Woman of the Year and Greek Advisor awards, as well. For us, being an Alpha Gam is finding your people, growing in service to others, and joining generations of women who joyfully contribute to their communities. We are Loving. Leading. Lasting.

It all began on April 5, 1895 at the University of Arkansas. Four young women, with the help of a local dentist, established the secrets and symbolism that today bind over 260,000 women. This small band of women founded Chi Omega after realizing a need for an organization that would foster both friendship and respect for the potential and inherent value of women. By 1910, our Fraternity had expanded into every part of the continental United States. Within 15 years Chi Omega chapters spanned the country-from Maine to California, Oregon to Florida, Texas to Illinois. Whenever a new chapter was installed, members in other chapters wore Chi Omega's colors beneath their pins and sent letters of welcome and congratulations. 

Here at Mercer University, Psi Gamma strives to make out five founders proud. The Psi Gamma Chapter of Chi Omega has a long and proud hisory on Mercer University's campus. Our chapter received its charter from Chi Omega National Headquarters on December 18, 1943. It was installed by Helen Gordon and had a charter class of 25 members. Psi Gamma has shown its continue appreciation to Mercer University through the contribution of many symbolic gifts, such as an engraved silver punch bowl in 1968, an engraved stone in 1993 commemorating 50 years on Mercer's campus, and an engraved bench commemorating 75 years on Mercer's Campus. We love deeply and laugh always. Psi Gamma doesn't want perfection we want real. insta: @mercerchiomega

The members of Kappa Alpha Order pride themselves on a tradition of chivalry and of the values of the gentleman. This is reminiscent of a romanticized version of the Knights of the Crusades. This all culminates into a modern college fraternal experience. A member of Kappa Alpha Order strives to offer reverence to both God and women, as described in the motto. Further, the idea that "Excellence is our Aim" further emboldens members to always apply themselves to self-improvement, realizing that you should always continue to strive for excellence. Finally, being that the organization is an Order, members typically have an idea of the above values before joining. Kappa Alpha does not intend to change anyone, rather bond together those men who have these similar values so that they may experience brotherhood, and pursue improvement, with one another.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is a social/service collegiate and professional fraternity founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C. on January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students.

Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would exemplify the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service while taking an inclusive perspective to serving the community as opposed to having an exclusive purpose. The fraternity exceeded the prevailing models of Black Greek-Letter fraternal organizations by being the first to establish alumni chapters, to establish youth mentoring clubs, to establish a federal credit union, to establish chapters in Africa, and establish a collegiate chapter outside of the United States. It is also the only fraternity to hold a constitutional bond with a predominantly African-American sorority, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., which was founded on January 16, 1920, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The Mercer University chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded in the centennial year of the organization on April 13, 2013.

Our success is continually recognized within Mercer and also throughout the nation, as this past year we were noted as being the best small chapter of Phi Delta Theta, a high accomplishment indeed. Also, our chapter’s GPA has been consistently above the All Men’s Average, as well as the All-Greek Men’s Average. This past year Mercer recognized our academic achievements as we were awarded the scholarship bowl for the highest IFC GPA. We have recognized that education is the primary reason why we are here at Mercer, and because of this, we have made academics our foremost priority. We help our members develop in other areas of life as well. Being a well-rounded man is crucial to having, and more importantly sustaining, a life of successful fulfillment. We help our members achieve this by instilling in them our 3 cardinal principles early during pledgeship and then holding them accountable for following these three principles throughout their college career. These three principles are Friendship, Sound Learning, and Moral Rectitude. We hope you consider making Phi Delta Theta part of your amazing Mercer experience, and please keep in mind that becoming a member of our organization is a lifetime commitment that will undoubtedly make you a better man. At the same time, we are a selective organization that has strong requirements for entry, and we will only consider people who we fully believe will make our organization a better cultivator of men.

Mercer Allergy Awareness Club’s mission is to make college safer for students with food and environmental allergies by raising awareness in the Mercer community and Bibb county. MAAC was created in 2021 as an advocacy group for the “allergic” and a learning environment for the “non-allergic”. Food allergies affect 8.6% of young adults; therefore, there could be over 400 students with a food allergy among the 5000 undergraduates on Mercer’s Macon campus. The highest incidence of fatal food-induced anaphylaxis occurs among young adults due to risk-taking behaviors such as allergic individuals eating unsafe foods and not carrying/appropriately using epinephrine. Our club strives to help people without allergies understand the implications of living with allergies and train the general student body for emergency interventions such as recognition of anaphylaxis. Some other activities include EpiPen training clinics, educational talks, walkathons, cooking workshops, the Teal Pumpkin Project and much more! We work closely with Mercer Dining Services and the college dietician to improve options on campus for students with food allergies. We also partner with national organizations such as Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) in their education and advocacy initiatives.
