It is that time of year again! Fall recruitment for Greek Life! I am proud to be a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority http://www.alphadeltapi.org/. It was one of the best decisions I made while I was in college. I made life long friends, learned vital leadership skills, and have been able to network as we have moved around for my hubby's job.
This time of year, the Greeks are getting ready for their annual membership drive. As an alumna, I take great pride in writing letters of recommendation for membership into Alpha Delta Pi.
This year, I had the privilege of writing letters for young women entering the University of Georgia http://www.uga.edu/, Georgia College and State University http://www.gcsu.edu/ (my Alma Mater!), and Auburn University http://www.auburn.edu/ (War Eagle!).
Greek life may not be for you, everyone has different experiences, but I would suggest to anyone entering college to at least check it out. It is a great way to meet new people and helps with finding your place in your new surroundings. Even 12 years later for me, I have found alumnae groups in the different cities that we have lived in. I have an instant connection with these women, even though we had different experiences on different college campuses. I have even kept up with people that went through recruitment at same time as I did, although they joined different organization. Keep an open mind and have fun meeting new people!!
The following article is a great look at the benefits of Greek Life today that one of my ADPi sisters, shared on Facebook this morning. Check it out!
