Alpha Delta Pi
Letter from the President:
To all of the amazing women in search of a forever sisterhood, I want to welcome you to the website of the Alpha Epsilon chapter of Alpha Delta Pi. Recruitment is an amazing time, but it can be a stressful event. As you go through recruitment keep an open mind and an open heart, know that you can find a group of amazing women to be your support system.
My name is Sarah Osborn and I am the current chapter president. I am originally from Omaha, NE (I went to Millard North, go Mustangs!). I am majoring in Biochemistry and on the Pre-Medical path. I chose Lincoln as my university of choice because of all the vast opportunities it offered, including Greek life. Greek life is more than just friends, it’s a family, an opportunity, growth, and it gets you involved with a community of inspirational people.
I came home to Alpha Delta Pi in the Fall of 2017. I was in a time of need and at a point in my life that I was not proud of who I was. These amazing women found me and truthfully, they saved me. Together, they lifted me up and showed me all of the amazing opportunities that I could have. They changed my life and put me back onto my medical track and showed me that I can accomplish all of my dreams. I owe these women my life, and in return, I have gained so many amazing opportunities and lifelong sisters. I now have women to eat with, study with, and I have found sisters in the same classes as me to push me to succeed. Without these women, I know I would not be where I am at today and I will always do anything to help them out. Our motto is “We Live For Each Other,” and I hope after my short story that you can see that motto is our way of life. I live for all of my sisters and they live for me.
This sisterhood is truly something every one of our members can be proud of. They all joined to be a part of a family and to have more opportunities. Being in a sorority is more than just your four years in college, but it is also for life. In college, there are so many events and bonding events that happen, but those bonds travel with us for the rest of our lives. I know that a lot of these women will be at my future wedding and will always support me even if we are halfway across the country.
Our members always have so much fun being with each other. I can recall so many fun memories of twenty of us in one room watching TV at midnight and having a blast. Other sisters can tell stories of their two in the morning ice cream runs or their late-night study sessions. No matter what it is there is always a sister to be with and sometimes it can lead to some very funny stories that I encourage you to ask about. My sisters also reach for academic excellence but they are also leaders in our community. They are in other clubs and organizations helping them strive as well. Our chapter is diverse in what we major in, our family background, and what we are involved in on campus, but the one thing each and every member has in common is that they want a sisterhood full of joy and memories that will last a lifetime.
I hope I have given you a little insight into what it means to be in Alpha Delta Pi. I encourage you to look through our website and our Instagram to dig in a little deeper. My wish for you is that you find your forever sisterhood. If that means Alpha Delta Pi, we will welcome you with open arms and you can proudly say that you are part of the first sorority created. I encourage you to “Be the First” and to follow your heart.
We Live for Each Other
