Running Home To ADPI Was The Best Day Of My Life
Jewel Murphy

Greek Life.

Something I ALWAYS have wanted to be apart, ever since I was a little girl.

I went through the recruitment process at Arizona State University, and honestly, it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It's hours and hours of conversations, small breaks and very little food.

I struggled with the process and wanted to drop multiple times throughout it.

I got my houses on day two and were very upset with all of them but three. I went to all of the house's and fell even more in love with my top three choices.

Then day three came along sisterhood day. I ran to our Greek Leadership Village that day so excited to hopefully receive my top three houses. Only to be disappointed to get called back to one of my top three and two other houses I kept dropping in previous rounds.

I went to the houses I dropped first and was just so upset the whole time. Until I got to Alpha Delta Pi, I could not stop smiling the entire time I was there. I fell in love and knew that's where I wanted to be.

I didn't struggle to make my decision on where I wanted to be on preference round. I put Alpha Delta Pi as my top house and then chose my second house. I was so excited that night I could hardly sleep. The next morning I texted my rho gamma and asked when I had to be there. When I got to the Greek Leadership Village I remember looking at my rho gammas face and instantly knowing I got called back to ADPI. I started crying.

ADPI was my first house and I cried from the moment I walked in until I left. I ran back to my rho gamma and cried telling her that's where my home is.

BID DAY. The absolute most nerve-wracking day of my entire life. I got to the Greek Leadership Village and had to wait for what felt like an eternity to find my new home. When I opened my bid I felt so many emotions I couldn't control them.

Running home to Alpha Delta Pi was the best day of my life and I am so excited for my time here and to be with my sisters. I can not wait for the next four years.

Thank you ADPI for bringing me home.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.
