I was initiated into Alpha Delta Pi (Pi chapter) as member in August 2013. The organization is the first and oldest sorority, dating back to 1851. There are currently 176 members in our chapter at Iowa State University.
I was elected by fellow members as the Alumnae Relations chair during my freshman/sophomore year. In this role, I maintained the relationship between our chapter and the local alumnae associations throughout Iowa. I was also in charge of transitioning our senior members into alumnae status before their graduation dates during both the Fall and Spring semesters.
The organization focuses on promoting leadership, scholarship and philanthropy both on campus and beyond. Alpha Delta Pi's national philanthropy is the Ronald McDonald House Charities which the chapter volunteers at and fundraises for to help nearby locations.
For the spring and summer of 2016, I was nominated and accepted to become a Rho Gamma. In this role I act as a representation of the Greek community as a whole as a disaffiliated and impartial member in order to counsel/guide students who are interested in joining the Greek community.
As a member of both the Greek community and Alpha Delta Pi, I have come to form bonds with incredible men and women who hold similar values as my own and have had new doors of opportunity open along the way academically and professionally.
