Now that my daughter is an Alpha Delta Pi, what can she expect?

Joining a sisterhood like ADPi, your daughter will find her best friends. She will always be welcomed with open arms at the house and always have a sister when needed.

Following bid day, your daughter will begin a 10-week program to learn about the history that has shaped our sorority. She will be expected to attend meetings once a week leading up to initiation. As well during those weeks, we have a strict no hazing policy.

This experience as a new member will be a growing period as she learns about what this sorority represents and carries pride with. She will be encouraged to be involved and will begin to make an impact as an individual in this chapter.

What benefits does Alpha Delta Pi have for my daughter?

The benefits are numerous. We provide life skills like leadership development through holding chapter offices, encouragement and assistance in academic achievement; we provide and encourage the importance of education, service opportunities and lifelong friendships. Our membership education program helps develop well-rounded women. Our sisterhood is more than just four years, it’s for life.

What are the expectations as a member of Alpha Delta Pi?

Each woman in our chapter was chosen because of her qualities that our members saw and wanted in a sister. We strive for all members to be committed and have a pride in their sorority. To maintain these expectations, this comes with responsibilities.

Each member is expected to attend weekly chapter meetings to help her stay informed in all chapter business, so she can stay involved.

Our members are held to high standards in keeping up with their academics. We look to encourage our members to maintain academic excellence. We expect academics to always be a high priority as we encourage and provide study groups, tutors and GPA expectations.

As well, we hold a high standard for behavior. We expect members to be responsible for their actions and for those actions to be classy and of good choice. Our officers and standard board will address manners in a loving, encouraging way, because we only want the best for each woman and hold them to a high standard.

Financially, we expect each member to be financially current. As a board, along with advisors and nationals, we have a set budget so we can meet our needs for the house and members, as well as use it for recruitment and social activities. Members will pay monthly and need to be current on payments to attend events.

What expectations are there for me as a parent?

As a parent of a member there are no obligations. We do however, offer a Parent’s Club you may join for a yearly fee. As part of this club you will have access to a Facebook page full of information for upcoming invites (Mom’s Weekend, Dad’s Weekend, etc.), have input on treats for finals week, fundraisers, and be updated with pictures from your daughter and her sisters. You are not required to join, but it is a great way to meet other parents and be in the know about our chapter.

What will my daughter gain from Alpha Delta Pi?

As a member, your daughter will gain many great characteristics, as well as friendships and memories. Our sisterhood gives lifelong friendships and college memories that will never be forgotten. Best friends will be made, mentors will be found, and encouragement will be given. Being apart of Alpha Delta Pi, she will learn about leadership, time-management, achieve academic excellence, give back to philanthropies and the community, and overall focus on personal development.

These elements make Alpha Delta Pi the sorority it is. Encourage your daughter to make the most of her opportunities Alpha Delta Pi offers.
