I chose ADPi because I instantly made connections with the girls in this chapter. I didn’t have a lot of friends coming to SEMO, so it was amazing to find a group of girls with open arms that were able to welcome me home. Over my past year in this chapter, I have made some of the best memories and bonds with amazing girls that I would have never made if I had not decided to go ADPI. ADPI has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone in so many ways, and I have everyone in this chapter to thank for that. This humbling sisterhood, everyone’s hard work, and passion for each other and community led me to find my group of girls.

The reason I chose ADPi was because as soon as I walked through the doors at recruitment I felt at home and surrounded by the most amazing and inspiring women. ADPi has brought me girls that motivate me to always do better in anything that I am doing! Freshman year didn’t go as planned but I still got to experience some amazing things with ADPi. My favorite memory from this year was getting my diamond family, they are so amazing and I couldn’t have done freshmen year without them! Also, this year I was blessed to meet some of my very best friends that I get to live with next year in the Pi Palace! My freshman year in ADPi has already helped me grow so much as a person and I look forward to what the next 3 years bring me

When I came into college, I was excited and ready to tackle the world. College is a lot different than high school, and you can easily become overwhelmed with all the fun, new things that it can offer you. When I become an ADPI, I was scared because I saw the seniors and thought about how they seemed like they had it all together. Now as a senior, I can say that it has been ADPI that made them seem unstoppable. ADPI has pushed me to get out of my comfort zone, gain confidence, learn how to say no, and so much more. Those seniors I looked up to were at the end of their college journey, and I was just staring mine. Going into my last semester as an ADPI, I can think about myself as a scared freshman and think about how far I have come. ADPI has gotten me through college and has made me stronger that I thought I could ever be. I will forever be grateful for this time of growth, self love, and friendship I have found in ADPI.
