#WhyADPi

Welcome to this little corner of our world! Here we will share bits and pieces of our hearts that come together to unite our chapter. We believe we are strong, resilient, bold women who are made better by being together. We invite you to see just why we choose to love ADPi.

Sydney Locke, Recruitment & Marketing Vice President

#whyadpi? Honestly, because each year the chapter just keeps getting better. I absolutely adore being able to get to know each pledge class as they enter into ADPi. It's not always an instant fit, so I know the importance of pouring into the new pledge classes and making them feel loved as they explore what being an ADPi is all about. That is why I am so passionate about my role as recruitment and marketing vp-- I want everyone who comes into our house to feel welcomed, loved, and celebrated for who they are and I CANNOT WAIT to have our sweet new members in a few short months!

Madison Carnes, Recruitment Chair

To me, ADPi is a constant source of joy and friendship. The authenticity that is found within each woman is distinctly woven throughout the entire chapter. I know that no matter what may be going on in my life, I will have a shoulder to cry on, a laugh to be had, or an ear to listen. I could not be more thankful to call ADPi home!!! And I can’t wait for you to see it, too!

MaryPratt Byrd, Panhellenic Delegate

Why ADPI? Because these girls are women that I will always find myself looking up to. They make me strive to be the best me there is by celebrating each unique characteristic that makes our chapter whole.

Wow! I love love love ADPi! If I could, I would go back and choose ADPi 100 times! This sweet sorority is filled with such genuine J O Y! 💛 It is home to some pumpin dance parties, exciting adventures, and deeply intentional girls who become your bestest friends in the whole wide world! I am so blessed to call the gals of ADPi my sistas and am constantly amazed at their accomplishments and their willingness to consistently “live for each other!” 

Ragan Ware, membership & education vice president

Why ADPi? Because this sisterhood is a constant source of joy and encouragement. I look around and am surrounded by women who I admire and who I want to be just like. I see girls who are so genuine and who will champion me in every season of life. ADPi has brought me so much joy, the best friendships, and the greatest experiences. If I had to do it all over again, I’d still choose ADPi today and forever!

Hey!! My name is Maggie Mitchell and I fell in love with ADPi the very first night I stepped in the door. It is amazing to me how so many different girls from various backgrounds can all come together because of our common values and standards we each set for ourselves and for each other. Each girl in ADPi strives to be the absolute best they can be and by surrounding yourself with strong girls who not only want to make you a better person, but in turn strive to achieve excellence for themselves, is truly the biggest blessing I could ask for. As a freshman, it was hard to come to school and leave my family, but when I had girls who would love me no matter what but also push me to be my best and then be there for me when I felt like I wasn’t, I realized I made the right choice running home to ADPi!!! Boom boom!!

As the first woman in my family to attend college, I knew absolutely nothing about Greek life. I was slightly skeptical about the idea of “sisterhood” because I felt like that word was thrown around a lot, so I doubted it had any meaning beyond a cute caption on Instagram. To my surprise, I found a fully genuine, fierce sisterhood full of women who truly lived out their open motto — “We Live For Each Other.” This place is Alpha Delta Pi. ADPi has become my home away from home from the moment that I opened my bid card & saw sweet sweet Kappa! Since then, I have found my best friends, my mentors, my girl gang. These girls cheer me on at my best and lift me up at my worst. You truly will not find a better group of ladies on Samford’s campus than behind that little blue door! Running home to ADPi was the best decision I ever made, and I continue to choose this house every single day!

Rachel Dixon

ADPi has been a constant source of love, grace, compassion and encouragement the last three years. Before coming to college, I prayed that I would find and form lifelong friendships. Boy did the Lord outdo himself with the girls in ADPi. I’m blessed to call them not only my friends, but my sisters. I love that I have been able to find my home away from home in the relationships I’ve built through this sweet sweet sisterhood.

Katie saxon

I chose ADPi and keep choosing ADPi because it’s not just the letters that make us family. The love we have for each other goes past pledge classes and into automatic mentorship and sisterhood. It’s the fact that these girls would go to the ends of the earth for you when you’re having a bad day, celebrate your joys with you, and knowing that no matter how hard or even how great life gets here at Samford, you have a community of sisters to come back to.

Alpha Delta Pi. One of the coolest, genuine, fun, selfless and loyal group of girls I have ever met. These sisters keep me accountable and push me to be the best version of me. ADPi displays great leadership on campus and this has had a tremendous impact on me and furthered my leadership skills. When I’m with these strong beautiful women, I’m home.

I love ADPi because of our amazing girls! I know you hear that often, but it is so true. This group of girls are so genuine and sweet. They make me feel special and loved. It is so reassuring to know that I will always have this group to support me and reassure me in the tiny and gigantic moments of college and life (and beyond!) I initially chose ADPi because of the girls that rushed me. I remember thinking that I wanted to be like them- successful, sincere and sweet! I keep choosing ADPi because these girls put such joy, silliness and love into my life! Forever grateful for this wonderful organization!

ADPi was the last house I visited on the first night of recruitment and I don’t even know how to describe the difference in the room from the other houses. I immediately felt known, encouraged and at ease. I can genuinely say that ADPi has been consistently the same welcoming place as it was that first night of recruitment. It’s not a show. That house is where deep, true friendships have been made with people alike and different from me and have formed me to be the person I am today. My ADPi girls don’t let accomplishments go uncelebrated. They band together in times of grief and hurt. And they are INCREDIBLE dancers. ONE MORE YEAR AT KAPPA BUT ALWAYS AN ADPI <3
