Sewanee: The University of the South


As members of the fraternity/sorority community, Alpha Delta Pi is proud to welcome those who want to enhance their college experience as part of something bigger. We select and maintain membership on the basis of scholarship, leadership, commitment, and service to the work of the sorority, the university, and the community. Alpha Delta Pi actively encourages a membership which represents a diverse population and does not discriminate in membership selection procedures. Come home to Alpha Delta Pi and find women who are true and loyal, just like our blue and white colors represent. ADPi sisters are leaders and visionaries. We are SGA senators, artists, student athletes, and scholars. We are committed to sisterhood, values and ethics, high academic standards, and social responsibility. We committed to those when we established the first secret society for collegiate women in 1851 at the first university chartered to grant degrees to women. We are committed to them still today.

Sewanee offers two opportunities for women to go through recruitment: Upper-Class Rush (Fall) and Rush (Spring).  Upper-Class Rush is open to Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, and women who transferred to campus.  This happens during the first few weeks of the Fall semester and involves two rounds- Around the Row and Return House.  Formal Recruitment, referred to as Rush at Sewanee, is open to women in any grade level.  It involves two nights of Formal House tours (visiting five sororities per night), and a Return House where women have the opportunity to revisit their four favorite sororities.  Additionally, we host Rush Events throughout the Fall for Sewanee women to meet our members and learn more about Alpha Delta Pi!
