1. Bid Day, University of Missouri, August 2010: This was my first Bid Day as a Delta (initiated member of ADPi), which meant it was the first time I got to help welcome home new Alphas (new members in ADPi) — all 77 of them!
2. Wesleyan Female College, June 2011: I visited Wesleyan (the college where ADPi was founded) for the first time with my fellow interns at Executive Office the summer before my senior year. I have also had the privilege of visiting two more times since then!
3. Memorial Headquarters & Executive Office, June 2011: Another shot from my internship days in Atlanta.
4. Football game, University of Missouri, fall 2011: As much as I love ADPi specifically, I have a passion for Panhellenic organizations in general. My ADPi sisters and I had several Thetas we were very close to in college, hence our #ThetADPi pose in this picture. (And one of them has her own blog now! Go say hi to Kaleigh!)
5. Preference Day, University of Missouri, August 2011: My final preference day as a Delta member. (Preference Day is the final round of formal recruitment.)
6. Bid Day, University of Missouri, August 2009: My Bid Day! Kiki, pictured with me here, later became my Diamond Sister (ADPi's term for "big/little").
7. ADPi Date Party, University of Missouri, fall 2011: Not only am I very close with Kiki, I am also very close to my other Diamond Sister, Liz. We lived together and everything! Liz's Diamond Sister, Jen, also joined us for this photo.
8. Leadership Seminar, June 2010: I attended the sorority's biannual leadership conference as an "emerging leader" representative for my chapter the summer after my sophomore year, where I also got to snap a picture with our then-International President, Claire Brown Gwaltney.
9. Black Diamond, University of Missouri, April 2012: Finally, though I graduated in December, I was able to make it back for my chapter's spring formal to celebrate with all the seniors.
Of course, I am still actively involved in Alpha Delta Pi as a Leadership Consultant, but I wanted to focus on my college experiences in this post. I summarized the first semester of my LC experience in December, and I plan to do so again for the spring semester in May.
Are you in a sorority? What are some of your favorite memories? If you are not a sorority member, I'm curious: What do you think about Greek organizations? Do you have any experience with them?
