I was Home- Margaret Kuester

When I first came to Samford, I thought I had everything figured out. I had no idea what was in store for me. 

As the rush process went on, my decision became obvious. I knew in my heart which house I wanted, and I genuinely prayed the nights of rush that I could  call ADPi my home. I knew some girls in ADPi, and they seemed to be the most genuine girls on campus. I truly mean that. These girls were leaders, they were involved, they were ambitious, and they were genuine. I knew from how genuine these girls were that I wanted to be apart of this community. I wanted to be an Alpha Delta Pi, and I suppose the rest is history. When I opened my letter on Bid Day and ran to my new sisters, my heart was overflowing with joy. I experienced pure bliss. All of bid day was such a celebration, and I can’t remember the last time I’d been so happy. I was home.

Looking back on my freshman year, I have been truly blessed beyond belief. I have gotten to know the most amazing people in Alpha Delta Pi. I can’t say that enough. I am so happy to call the girls in Alpha Delta Pi my sisters, and I am so proud to call some of my sisters my best friends. These best friends of mine are rockstars. They are ambitious, loving, caring, as authentic as it gets, and they run after the Lord. That’s the most refreshing thing about Alpha Delta Pi. My friends point me to God everyday, and they continue to pursue me as He would when I’m far from Him. Growing up, my Dad always used the phrase, “relentlessly rescuing” to describe God, and these girls exhibit that phrase flawlessly. They rescue me relentlessly when I am hurting, when I’m feeling exhausted, or when I am swamped with work. I count myself as so lucky to know them, but much more so to call them my people. In ADPi, I have found my future bridesmaids. I can’t wait to see what comes out of this ambitious and hardworking group of girls.

Seriously, Go ADPi,

Margaret Kuester
