Welcome Home, Alphas, to Alpha Delta Pi at Tulane University! I could not be more happy to have such an amazing founding class and I cannot wait to see what this year will bring for these new members. To celebrate our new members we went to City Park to eat some food and get to know each other.
It ended up being a fun afternoon considering it was a whirlwind putting it together. Buses were late, the food wasn't ready at Wal Mart [even though I called in the morning to confirm], I dropped a vegetable tray [which they kindly replaced in under 5 minutes], and some racoons ate our turkey wraps. If I have learned anything so far this year it is to roll with the punches.
Until I leave for the University of Memphis, I will be helping the Lead Consultant here plan weekly Colony meetings and Colony Retreat. Colony meetings are more involved than regular chapter meetings because the colony has to go through new member education, learn about chapter operations, work in committees before officer elections, and prepare for formal recruitment in January all at the same time.
Being in a sorority is a lot of fun, but there is certainly lots of work to be done regarding marketing, recruitment, fundraising, building Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Council relations, and working on internal chapter relations - also known as sisterhood!

This week will be full of marketing tasks - tabling on campus, making announcements at fraternity and sorority chapters, hosting Q&A sessions, and scheduling coffee dates with potential new members![Thank you to the members of Sigma Chi, Zeta Psi, FIJI, and AEPhi for inviting us to speak at their chapters!]
Our colony recruitment starts on Sunday, September 8th with an information session and continues on the 9th, 10th and 11th with "Tell Us About You" sessions, which are essentially interviews. On the 10th we will also organize a philanthropy night so potential new members can learn about Ronald McDonald House Charities!
Then before you know it Alpha Delta Pi will welcome home our colony members at Bid Day on Thursday, September 12th!!!
I would really appreciate it if you could follow Tulane ADPi on our various social media accounts and spread the word about ADPi coming home to Tulane! I spent some time chalking the sidewalks on campus tonight with some info on ADPi (fingers crossed it doesn't rain tomorrow!) so look out for pictures of my kind of/sort of/not really beautiful chalking!

Last Tuesday we hopped in the minivans and drove over to Macon, GA to learn about the founding of Alpha Delta Pi at Wesleyan College. Wesleyan College was the first college to grant women degrees and Alpha Delta Pi - then known as the Adelphean Society - was the first ever secret society for women. It is a privilege to be a small part of such a rich history!
