At Alpha Delta Pi, we are a sisterhood of friends, a family of individuals, and a home away from home. We embrace every woman's uniqueness, we encourage and support each other's goals and dreams, and we value character above all else. Founded in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia, Alpha Delta Pi was the first secret society for women.
Hi! My name is Liz Williams and I am currently the President of the Beta Eta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi here at the University of Michigan. I am majoring in Sport Management and hoping to also minor in business. I hope this website gives you a look at the amazing members who make this organization so special, and why we all chose to call ADPi home!
In the Winter of 2021, I chose to expand my experience at the University of Michigan. With my freshman year being anything but normal in the midst of a pandemic, I went into recruitment searching for a place I could truly just be myself and find a an amazing group of girls to surround myself with. From the first day ADPi stood out to me, from the little things of simply smiling and saying hi as they passed each other in the halls, to the stories they would tell about endless laughs they shared with each other. Each day, ADPI was a place I looked forward to returning to, round after round. Fast forward to today, and I can honestly say that back then, I never imagined I would become Chapter President. It simply wasn’t something I had ever thought of, but the love that I have for this chapter and each and every girl in it is inspiring and I strive to be the best leader for them. I owe this high honor, and the incredible joy it brings me, to the women of this chapter. They encouraged me, emboldened me, and trusted me to represent them. I think as a member of ADPi, you will find that same sense of support from your sisters in every endeavor you embark upon.
One of my favorite things about ADPi is the genuine desire in each of our members to live out our motto, “we live for each other.” Whether it’s delivering coffee to a sister studying in the UGLi or providing an outstretched hand in a time of need, I can honestly say that each of our members shares an authentic love for one another.
They say a true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably (William Penn). I have found about 200 of those friends here, and it has been an incredible privilege of mine to lead this extraordinary group of women who uphold this saying each and every day. ADPi isn’t just for 4 years, it’s for life, and these are the people I want standing next to me when I take on the world on graduation day, and every day after.
I hope this website provides you with valuable information about our chapter and our sisterhood, and what makes ADPi so special to each of us! If you have any questions please feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org!
