involvement: Whether you’re on campus, off-campus, or traveling around the world, you will always find Alpha Delta Pi’s living by our open motto, “We Live For Each Other.” This motto is wholeheartedly embraced by each and every one of our sisters, many of whom dedicate themselves to Dance Marathon, lead others in Student Government, serve in business organizations, empower women in STEM, and simply become something that is greater than themselves. Regardless of where we are, what we are doing, or whom we are inspiring, we are always living for each other.
#leanonme because we’re stronger together. Alpha Delta Pi is a home because of the people who fill it. People who share and inspire your values, who lead with grace and humility, who love and empower one another. People who live for each other, make the days better, and the world brighter.
When I reflect on my time in Alpha Delta Pi, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Gratitude for the friends who tirelessly support me, the experiences that continuously grow me, the memories that fill me up, and the 300 women that have shaped the person that I am. To lead this chapter is one of the greatest privileges I’ve had and is something that humbles me deeply. Alpha Delta Pi is a place that constantly fosters compassion. This community has shown me how you can be embraced for all that you are while being challenged to reach the potential you never knew you had. My role as president attributes to this unique and selfless love that has been poured into me for the past two-and-a-half years and to each person that has believed in me enough to serve them.
At first, I didn’t fully understand how a place hours away from my hometown could so easily begin to feel like home. Now, looking at each beautifully diverse, passionate, and incredible friend that surrounds me in this chapter, I know I have my answer. I hope that everyone will find a blessing such as the one I’ve found there: open arms at your highs and lows, laughs to make any dark day bright, and a lifetime of joy within genuine friendships. In essence, a place where you can shine in your most natural form. I hope you find people that feel like home and that you know that you are always welcome at Alpha Delta Pi!
