5 Reasons To Go Alpha Delta Pi

5 Reasons To Go Alpha Delta Pi

I could name a million, but you'd never read it.

Nina Hebrank

You've probably seen an article like this a billion times, but do you know what makes this one different? I genuinely believe that Alpha Delta Pi is a sorority for everyone.

You see some sororities that all look the same: some are all blonde, some are all athletic, some are all tan, etc. In Alpha Delta Pi, we have girls from all walks of life, and that's what makes us special. Going through recruitment can be so, unbelievably scary. I get it. I've been on both sides of the experience now. There's one thing you're going to find at ADPi, we're all genuine and love our sisters and sorority.

Now I'm not bashing other sororities, not at all. I loved so many houses when I went through recruitment myself, but there are reasons I chose ADPi above the rest.

Here are the reasons:

1. I felt at home

They tell you to take notes after every house on open house days because you have so many conversations and meet so many amazing women; all of this is true. However, after visiting ADPi, I didn't need to take notes. The conversations flowed and they were all memorable. I felt completely in my element as soon as I got picked up by an active member at the door. I remembered everything from what they were wearing to the names of every girl that talked to me.

2. Every girl I met was genuine and easy to talk to

What is so difficult about recruitment is the repeated conversations in each house that make the days all blend together. "What dorm do you live in?" "Why do you want to be in this sorority?" "Where are you from?" All this stuff. Of course, those are the questions to get to know a girl, but if every question makes it seem like an interview, it probably won't make an impression on the PNM (potential new member).

3. They went above and beyond to ensure that I felt wanted and special

As I sat in my seat twiddling my thumbs and being my nervous self, the president approached me and said, "Nina we're so glad you joined us again today! When I saw your name on the list we all got so excited!" It was then that I knew I wanted to be in ADPi. Not because of what she said, but how she said it. She said it with sincerity and happiness in her voice. I wanted to be friends with her and people like her. Throughout the week, she kept approaching me to remind me how important I was and how I'd make a perfect fit as an Alpha Delta Pi sister.

4. I could tell being in a sorority meant more to them than it did on the surface

Coming from an all-girls high school, I wanted to have some of that same experience in college. I didn't just want a group of friends to go out with on the weekends, I wanted to meet the friends that I would want as my bridesmaids, friends that will stay in touch even after we graduated. I could tell within a week of joining Alpha Delta Pi that I would find these women in no time.

5. They're just as service-driven as I am

I honestly didn't know going into my freshman year if I was going to be as service-driven as I was in high school, or even if other girls would care about their philanthropy. Man was I wrong. It seems that every girl in the chapter is eager to spend time at the Ronald McDonald House and to raise money for it. It's so exciting to be motivated by and with your sisters to better yourself and help the community. Now, I'm 2x as involved with my philanthropic pursuits than I was in high school.

As you can see, Alpha Delta Pi has changed me for the better. I hope when you go through recruitment, you keep these points in the back of your mind. Trust me, you'll come to find that you'll be able to make your own list of why ADPi should be your home.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
