"Best friends, future bridesmaids and sisters"- Arden Dortch

I grew up hearing my mom and her sister tell stories about their time in ADPi at Samford. They had so many hilarious and crazy stories, as well as sweet and meaningful ones too. My mom remained friends with her ADPi sisters and has walked through life with them. I wanted the same experiences, but I also wanted to make my own decisions as I went through recruitment. In every door I walked through that week, I was greeted by different women who loved and cared deeply about the house they belonged to. But as the week went on, one house stood out in my mind as the place I needed to be. The women I met in ADPi were genuine, loving, funny, and everything I desired to be. There was no doubt in my mind when I ran home to Alpha Delta Pi on September 29, 2014 that I was making the best decision. Since that day, my experience has been better than I could have ever expected. I have had some of the best laughs, craziest times, sweetest moments, greatest learning experiences, and the Godliest friends; and I owe all of that to ADPi. I have found my best friends, my future bridesmaids, and my sisters here. I will be forever grateful for this chapter!
