involvement: Whether you’re on campus, off campus or traveling around the world, you can always find Alpha Delta Pi’s living by our open motto, “We Live For Each Other.” This motto is full heartedly embraced by each of our sisters, many of whom are volunteering in Dance Marathon, leading others in Student Government, serving in business organizations, empowering women in STEM and becoming a part of something that is greater than themselves. Regardless of where we are, what we are doing or who we are inspiring, we are always living for each other.
#thisishome because of the people. People who share and inspire values, who lead with grace and humility, who love and empower one another. People who are strong, beautiful and selfless. People who make the days better, world brighter and a house feel like a home.
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!
