Alpha Delta Pi -- Kappa Chapter -- Samford University

Established in 1851, Alpha Delta Pi is committed to each other, high academics, and values. A diverse group of girls with different qualities has come together to make our chapter so special. Our Kappa girls are involved all around campus and the Birmingham community. "We live for each other" is not just a statement we throw around. Our girls here truly embody the phrase and love each other endlessly. We treasure this organization and are privileged to be a part of this amazing chapter, not just for our time at Samford, but for the rest of our lives.

Letter from our president

I am so blessed and excited to serve as Kappa President for 2017. Alpha Delta Pi has brought me amazing memories, lifelong sisters, and many opportunities for growth. This year I will strive to encourage positive attitudes, forward- thinking, and sisterhood by displaying faith, love, and grace to the best of my ability. The women in Kappa Chapter have encouraged me by living out our motto, “We Live For Each Other” and I hope to do the same for them.  I hope that as you look around, you can get a glimpse as to why we love calling this place home.

Loyally, Arden Dortch
