I don’t do this too often, so here goes:
Many of you all may not know I’m in a sorority. Since I have an out of state internship, I’m not active this fall. *cries*
My little diamond sister in my sorority got her little diamond sister tonight, and I’m really excited about it! She is sweet and precious and I can’t wait to meet her!
The two small photos are me with my two diamond sisters at separate reveals, and the third is my little diamond sister (right) with her new one. Yay!
Just a regular day!
Love my sweet bid day buddy! So happy Sarah came home to ADPi! <>
y’all i have the best sisters ever
some adorable AΔΠ ladies on bid day at university of georgia!
Happy 160 years of sisterhood!
We live for each other, and for Alpha Delta Pi.
The best tip I can give you is to keep an open mind. Alpha Delta Pi is a wonderful sorority, but there are sixteen other sororities at Duke and one of those may turn out to be a better fit. You will probably hear quite a bit of tent talk and gossip about the various groups, but talk to the girls in each chapter and form your own opinion - a single pledge class* can change a reputation in a semester.
Alpha Delta Pi may turn out to be a great fit - and I hope it is - but each group will have something to offer to you.
I’m not incredibly familiar with how things run at Duke, so you may want to look into getting letters of recommendation from alum for as many groups as you can. They certainly won’t hurt. (The letters will need to come from alum members of the respective sororities.)
Other than that, be yourself and make sure you are able to carry on a conversation. Dress appropriately for each event (each campus has different requirements) and don’t dress as if you’re going clubbing. Show up on time and do not skip any parties - contact your group leader ahead of time if you have class or an emergency.
For recruitment itself you won’t be allowed to bring anything into the parties, or take anything out, but you may be able to leave a baggie or purse with your group leader - at minimum I suggest packing mints, a hair brush, deodorant, a snack that isn’t messy, water, tissues, and lipgloss.
*Alpha Delta Pi does not use the term pledge class, but many other groups do and it’s a recognizable term. ADPi calls our new members Alphas.
