Cookies & Pi’s
This is the second Panhellenic-sponsored event of the year for Alpha
Delta Pi. We invite first-year and independent women to help us make
cookie mix in a jar to take to our philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald
House. At this time, we explain exactly what we do for RMH and how much
it means to us.
Mock Formal Recruitment
Since Southwestern utilizes deferred Recruitment, the Panhellenic
Council offers a Fall preview event known as Mock Formal
Recruitment. Mock Formal Recruitment is an amazing opportunity for
Potential New Members (PNMs) to get a “sneak peak” of what Formal
Recruitment will be like in January. Each PNM will have the chance to
meet the sisters of each of the 4 sororities during short, casual
parties. Don’t forget to sign up in your Residence Hall for Mock
Spring Semester Recruitment Activities
Mandatory Recruitment Meeting
Typically held right before the beginning of Formal Recruitment, this
final mandatory meeting covers the details and schedule of Recruitment.
Panhellenic Council is available to answer any last questions from PNMs
and to give each PNM an idea of what to expect in the coming days. At
the end of the meeting, each PNM will receive their recruitment t-shirt
to be worn during the first night of Formal Recruitment. Remember, this
mandatory meeting is very important for each PNM to attend!
Round 1: Go Greek!
Tonight is all about meeting everyone in the Greek Community at
Southwestern! PNMs will be divided into small groups with Panhellenic
Delegates to guide them through the formal recruitment process. At ΑΔΠ, PNMs will find a fun environment
and have a chance to meet all of our amazing sisters. An informative
and entertaining slideshow will give PNMs a glimpse into our sisterhood
and the bond we share. We hope you will get an idea of what being an
ΑΔΠ sister is all about!
Round 2: Skit Night
The second night of Formal Recruitment is meant to be a humorous and entertaining night. The sisters of ΑΔΠ
will perform a skit designed to give you a better idea of what ΑΔΠ
means to each of our sisters. We will also share with PNMs the unique
character of ΑΔΠ and the wonderful opportunities it has provided for
each one of our sisters. We hope PNMs will take away a deeper
understanding of our loyalty to each other and how ΑΔΠ has shaped who
we are today.
Round 3: Preference
As Formal Recruitment Weekend comes to a close, ΑΔΠ wants every PNM to
know how much we enjoyed getting to know them. We take this final day
to express our true feelings for each other and the love we share for
ΑΔΠ. We encourage you to take this final opportunity to ask questions
and engage in deep conversations with our sisters. We utilize this
sentimental gathering to impress upon each PNM the unique fellowship we
share as sisters in ΑΔΠ.
The real fun is just beginning! Held in the afternoon following
Preference, Bid Day is when each PNM receives a “bid,” an invitation to
join a particular sorority. As ΑΔΠ sisters, we plan a fun-filled
evening of meeting our new sisters and introducing them to life as an
Alpha Delta Pi! Bid Day is a very exciting experience and we are
extremely enthused about welcoming our new sisters to ΑΔΠ!
