Stages of Membership
ΑΔΠ never refers to its newest members as “pledges.” They are Alphas, the Greek word for beginning.
Each Alpha sister gets a big sister, called a Diamond Sister. Many ΑΔΠ sisters feel that their Diamond Sister is one of their closest friends in the chapter. A chain of Diamond Sisters forms a Diamond Family, a tight-knit unit of sisterly love. Diamond Families get together for lunches and dinners to celebrate different occasions and help guide our sisters through the different stages of membership.
Our initiated collegiate sisters are referred to as Delta sisters. As a Delta member, sisters continue to develop the bonds of sisterhood through the many events of ΑΔΠ. As you look around the Southwestern campus, you’ll see ΑΔΠ sisters in leadership positions in various organizations and volunteering on campus and in the community.
Alumnae sisters, or Pi members, express their love for ΑΔΠ by continuing to volunteer their time for individual chapters and through alumnae associations. ΑΔΠ alumnae truly live the vow of lifelong sisterhood and graciously pass their legacy onto us, the future generation of Alpha Delta Pi.
