Find Friends Who Live for You - Margaret Mason

"The honest, vulnerable, and fluid friendships which I have made with girls not just my age but both younger and older in Alpha Delta Pi are something I prayed for going into college. If I could tell incoming freshman one thing, it would be to find people to walk with you. Find friends who want to joyfully walk and live with you through the highs and the lows of your next four years here at Samford. Moreover, find friends who live for you and then live for them. In ADPi Kappa, we do just that. Our motto is "we live for each other." And isn’t that what we are called to do on this earth? Aren’t we called to be pilgrims and walk alongside one another on our journey to our true Home? We do that by living for something other than ourselves, each other. The friendships I have found in ADPi have become a part of me. Things like camping trips, formals, mornings at Pepper Place, late night chats, GroupMes, and half marathons have become a part of me. They are a part of me because of the people I did them with, the people who have loved me so well. They constantly meet be where I am, not where I should be. As I enter my senior year (so crazy), I am overly thankful to continue to walk with and live for the girls of ADPi."
