At Alpha Delta Pi, we are a sisterhood of friends, a family of individuals, and a home away from home. We embrace every woman's uniqueness, we encourage and support each other's goals and dreams, and we value character above all else. Founded in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, Alpha Delta Pi was the first secret society for women.
Hello! Welcome to the website for the Delta Pi chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. My name is Natalie King, and I am the current president of our chapter. I am a Junior from Tolono, Illinois, and I am currently on the path to obtaining a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology. Coming home to Alpha Delta Pi in 2019 was something I never could have seen coming for my life. Upon entering college I did not want to be involved in Greek life due to the stereotypical connotations I believed to be true. However, seeing the impact members of the Greek community had on the campus community and on myself, throughout my first semester I became more and more interested. Additionally, I realized my preconceived idea of what a sorority experience looked like was not true within the Delta Pi chapter. The overwhelming love and support I received by going Greek has truly changed my experience at Ripon College.
While in the chapter, I have served on the sisterhood committee, Vice President of Finance, and now Chapter President. All of these positions in our chapter are critical in our day to day operations, but president holds a special place in my heart. Each day I get to represent my chapter and be the number one supporter for each and every sister within my chapter. With this position comes a lot of responsibility; however, there are many wonderful bonuses which come with the responsibility. My favorite thing about being the president is being able to create a loving environment where my sisters are able to grow into the women they want to become. This demonstrates our open motto, “We Live for Each Other.” My sisters challenge me to be the best version of myself every day, and I could not be more grateful for the presence Alpha Delta Pi has in my life.
Throughout my different roles in the chapter I have continued to grow as a person. Upon entering the chapter I was not lacking in self confidence. Taking on leadership positions within the chapter has given me the confidence I currently have as well as the can-do attitude I have. I can confidently say my time in this chapter has changed me for the better. I know this does not happen to everyone who joins a sorority, but I do wish that everyone is able to gain confidence and a sense of self worth within their life whether that happens within Greek life or not. That being said, going Greek and going Alpha Delta Pi specifically, will provide you with many opportunities for growth and life-long friendships you never saw coming.
I highly encourage you to look through our website so you are able to see some of the amazing memories we have created as a sisterhood. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more about my “Why ADPi?” story, our sisterhood, or Alpha Delta Pi in general.
