My name is Melissa Ruprich and I am the President of the Beta Eta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. I am currently majoring in Biopsychology Cognition Neuroscience, minoring in Law, Justice, and Social Change, and I am on the pre-med track. When I began my Freshman year at the University of Michigan, I was both excited and nervous for what it had in store for me. My roommate and I decided to go through Recruitment. By the end, we both received a bid from ADPi and my roommate became my sister. We could not have been more excited and have now lived together ever since. My older sister is an Alpha Delta Pi at Beta Eta, so having this experience with her by my side has been one I will cherish forever.
I have always had a love for leadership, but I decided I wanted to be President when I was speaking with one of our previous presidents. I related to her passion and love for Alpha Delta Pi and I realized I wanted to give back to the organization that has given so much to me. I wanted to help lead my sisters to be the best versions of ourselves and promote our sisterhood amongst all Alpha Classes (New Member Classes). Now in this position, I am surrounded by my amazing Executive Board who have become some of my best friends. Not only have I made friendships within ADPi, but I have also made many connections in the Fraternity and Sorority Life Community that have enriched my college experience.
Alpha Delta Pi has given me my best friends, my sisters, and my family. These women constantly laugh, support and have fun with me. My favorite memories have been with my sisters whether we are cooking for families at the Ronald McDonald House on campus or having a movie night in the basement, we are always having a good time when we are together.
