For the women of Alpha Delta Pi, the week leading up to their Homers and Hogs event is a time where they are able to come together and make a significant difference in the community. This annual philanthropy consists of various events throughout the week, ending with a home run derby. Besides the exciting events, the philanthropy supports Ronald McDonald House Charities right here in Tallahassee.


1. Car chalking.

Kicking off the week, Alpha Delta Pi will be writing on car windows to spread the word about the upcoming events for the week. Stop by the Civic Center on Tuesday, October 10th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you're a member of a fraternity, and your brother is participating in our Diamond Man competition, this is an easy way for you to help his campaign.

2. Chipotle share at night.

Come out to the Chipotle on Tennessee Street on October 11 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A percentage of the money earned will be going back to Alpha Delta Pi's philanthropy.

3. Ronald McDonald House Charities.

For many families with a sick child, they are required to travel far from home in order for their child to receive proper care. Staying in hotels for long periods of time can be expensive and exhausting. Families are forced to commute back and forth, leaving their family divided for periods of time.

This is why the Ronald McDonald House was created, to give a home away from home to families in need. Thanks to RMHC, families are reunited and are able to remain close to their sick child while he or she is receiving care. Since Alpha Delta Pi's partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities in 1979, they have raised over 16 million dollars for the organization.

The Iota chapter of Alpha Delta Pi is lucky to have a Ronald McDonald House here in Tallahassee. Because of this, they are able to witness firsthand, the impact that the money fundraised from Homers and Hogs has on the house.

4. BBQ dinner.

Every year, the women of Alpha Delta Pi open their home to the community of Tallahassee for a BBQ dinner. The event will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the house and tickets will be $5. Your ticket will include your meal and they can be purchased at the door, or from a sister.

5. Pop tab competition.

The pop tab competition will be part of the Diamond Man competition. At the BBQ dinner, the men competing will see who can accumulate the most pop tabs. These pop tabs are then given to Ronald McDonald House Charities where they exchange them for money to help the organization.

6. Homers and Hogs.

At the new intramural fields, Alpha Delta Pi hosts a home run derby, known as Homers and Hogs. With food, sports, games, and music, this annual event welcomes everyone in the community to make a team. Make a team of 5 for $75 to participate in the fun!

Poetry On Odyssey: Doubt

It is time to wage war on our emotions, yet to do so we must be ready for the unknown.

What is it

Where does it come from

Why is it here

How is it so strong

When will it go away

Who even is it?


Questions on questions

They pile up higher and higher

But for what?


Is it only to be answered with another question

A question that can’t be answered,

Or can it?


Its name is doubt

Or is that even its name

I have become so unsure,

Because of its silly game.


Doubt makes us worry

Doubt makes us unwilling

Doubt makes us lost.


The very definition of doubt

Is a question

Or maybe it’s “to question.”


Doubt may be a hinder

Yet it does not cripple

For doubt can be overcome.


Our grass doesn’t have to be compared

No, not to the other side

See our grass can be watered

Watered right where we are.


It may take time,

But it will grow,

For it is proven.


We can’t question what is true

We can’t assume things we have yet to experience,

Yet we can grow what is right at our feet.


Sometimes we have to go with what we know,

And not with what we feel.


We have been given a mission

A purpose, if you recall,

Not to sit on the side

Yet to take the lead for all.


This is a stand we must make

One that will be hard to do

But hold on the promise

That we have all been there too.


For just as angst comes to prey

Doubt is by its side

But we know what’s to be done

We know how to fight

For we must only stand in the light.


Our grass will grow green

No matter how dead it seems

Don’t forget to add the water

Because that is all it needs.


You’ve got this,

Keep going,

You’re going to do great

I’m proud of you my friend

For this is not the end.
