Sisterhood

The college experience can be full of ups and downs.  Having close friends by your side during these moments, celebrating and sharing in your experiences, is just one of the benefits of our sisterhood.  The ties of sisterhood are unique, run deep, and last a lifetime.  From Bid Day forward, our new sisters are welcomed into our close bond.


Our hope is to show you these moments that bond Alpha Delta Pi sisters and make us a singular breed of women.  Our open motto, “We Live For Each Other” is the very foundation of ΑΔΠ sisterhood.  The Zeta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi has a unique individuality thanks to the fabulous women that it brings together in the halls of Southwestern University.

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.
