Welcome to Alpha Delta Pi at the George Washington University! My name is Maddie and I am incredibly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be the President of the Alpha Pi chapter. This organization has given so much to me in my three years as a sister and I’m so lucky to be able to give back in this role.
When I came to GW as a freshman I was pretty shy and not entirely sure of myself. Never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed I would become the President of my sorority. But Alpha Delta Pi helped me to unlock a self-confidence, and self-assurance that I didn’t know that I had. I am surrounded by amazing and accomplished sisters who have been the best role models for me- steering me towards internship opportunities and career paths that I had never considered but fell in love with, and supporting me in any decision I make. I have made friendships stronger than I could have imagined as demonstrated by the overwhelming number of women who came out to cheer me on during my first marathon this fall. I know that I will always have a partner to grab a bite to eat, stroll down to the national mall, or do homework with as well as women to lean on in all the years to come.
On any given day you can find sisters on their way to or from class, internships, or sporting events, going on different philanthropic endeavors, and attending meetings for various campus organizations. We are a chapter full of devoted women who give their all to their chosen activities. This is reflected in our outstanding GPA, which is the highest of all Greek organizations, as well as the sheer number of ADPi’s that serve on the executive boards of other campus organizations. While the women in this chapter are wonderfully diverse from one another in our interests, beliefs, and ethnicities, we are bonded through our relationship with Alpha Delta Pi and our sisters truly embody ADPi’s core values of scholarship, leadership, service, and sisterhood.
