Now please enjoy some letters to Potential New Members from our Director of Marketing and Director of Primary Recruitment as well as this year's recruitment video!
Dear Potential New Members,
Congratulations on your acceptance to Texas A&M! Texas A&M is not just a university, it is a family, a way of life. I cannot wait for you to experience the joys of football games in the student section, late nights with your closest friends, the feeling of putting on your Aggie ring for the first time, and the many moments that reaffirm that you made the right decision by choosing Texas A&M.
Joining Greek life has been the most influential and formative experience of my college career. I can say with confidence going through recruitment, forming lifelong friendships, giving back to the community, and serving in numerous leadership positions has made me a better woman. While at Texas A&M you will find the most amazing and selfless women in every chapter, I can honestly say finding your home during recruitment is the most rewarding part of the experience.
During recruitment I was extremely nervous and unsure of myself. I was eager to find “my place” on a campus with 65,000+ students, and wanted a sisterhood who loved me for everything I was and everything I was not. Walking through the doors of Alpha Delta Pi every round of recruitment, I found just that. Every day since then, I have felt at home, surrounded by the women who have become family, who will one day be my bridesmaids, and the people I have grown to lean on.
On behalf of the Zeta Lambda chapter of Alpha Delta Pi, we wish you the best throughout your recruitment experience. We are so eager to welcome you and show you a glimpse of our everlasting sisterhood! It’s truly not just for four years, but for life. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at email@example.com and I will be happy to help in any way I can! I can’t wait to meet y’all soon!
Dear Potential New Members,
Congratulations on being accepted into Texas A&M University, it is an honor, you should be proud of yourself and to be called an “Aggie”! I can’t wait for you to experience all that Texas A&M has to offer. It will be the best and most memorable four years of your life. You will grow so much through these coming years and you will walk away being a better version of yourself.
I knew I wanted to be in Greek Life ever since high school, it was something I had dreamt of. I hoped for friendships that would last a lifetime and for young ladies who would push me to be the best I could be. I ran home my freshmen year as a proud member of Alpha Delta Pi at the Eta chapter of the University of Alabama. Recruitment for me was everything I had dreamt of and more. I made some of my best friends that freshmen year. When I decided to transfer to Texas A&M in the fall of 2019, it was a very difficult decision for me, but knew it would benefit me one day. I took a leap of faith and walked into the Zeta Lambda chapter of Alpha Delta Pi here at Texas A&M and had so many butterflies in my stomach. I did not know if I was going to be accepted for who I was or if I had to start all over again. With this being my third year here at the Zeta Lambda chapter of Alpha Delta Pi I can honestly say these young ladies welcomed me with open arms. They have accepted me from day one and have pushed me to improve daily. I know that sounds ambitious but it’s true. Early on I would have never dreamt of holding an officer position. Yet three years later here I am having held multiple officer positions and am proud to say the most recent being Director of Primary Recruitment. This is the position I had hoped for years.
Joining Greek life has been one of the best decisions of my life. I don’t think I would be the person I am today without my sisters. Although I didn’t start my Greek life legacy here at College Station, my path has been even more special in that I have sisters both here in College Station, as well as, sisters that still love and support me all the way in Tuscaloosa. This mutual affection and support both near and far is invaluable and will last a lifetime….our sisterhood is meant for life.
As I look back on my recruitment days, I remember wanting girls to accept me not only on my best days but most importantly on my worst days. I always thought to myself “I never want to feel as though I have to be a Barbie” or someone I was not. We have all been in your shoes as a Potential New Member. It can be a nerve racking, frightening time. There may be days when you ask yourself “why am I here….why am I doing this?” We have all experienced those thoughts and emotions. Please remember, finding your home through this recruitment process will prove to be one of your most fond memories in life. I promise it will all be worth the experience and you will not regret the stress, worries, and possible tears.
On behalf of the Zeta Lambda chapter of Alpha Delta Pi we wish you the BEST of luck through your own unique experience with recruitment. We are truly excited to meet each of you and look forward to sharing with you what makes our sisterhood “the best, the one to remember.”
Please remember, no matter what occurs you always have a helping hand here at Alpha Delta Pi. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be more than happy to help. I am here for you all and cannot wait for you to find your home here at Texas A&M University. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
