"The women I have met throughout the sorority process have been so amazing and kind and make me proud to be an ADPi. They truly embody the values of our chapter like the importance of sisterhood, leadership, and scholarship."
My name is Alexa Crim and I am a third year Psychology and Economics Major from San Diego, California. I came home to ADPi in the fall of 2020 with a bunch of other wonderful women who make up my PC class! Funny story actually the year before I joined ADPi I was told by two separate people on multiple occasions that I was 100% an ADPi and it looks like they were right!
Freshman year, fall quarter 2019 when my roommate was going through the recruitment process, I swore to myself I would never rush a sorority. However, as time passed and I met more girls in Greek life at UCLA, and particularly when we went online for COVID, I realized how great of an opportunity joining a sorority was to meet a diverse group of women I wanted to be around and grow around.
Going through recruitment as a sophomore was nerve wracking. I could tell ADPi was the house for me when every single one of the conversations I had left me wanting more, or bragging about it to my roommate! I met my big through recruitment actually, in the best possible way, we had a really hilarious conversation about conspiracy theories and lizard people! Who knew I could find someone as crazy as me.
The women I have met throughout the sorority process have been so amazing and kind and make me proud to be an ADPi. They truly embody the values of our chapter like the importance of sisterhood, leadership, and scholarship. Further, they are willing to have tough conversations regarding our position as women in greek life, as greek life has a flawed history, and what we can do to affect good change for our chapter as a whole.
Going to sisterhood meetings after a long day of zoom university, never seemed appealing, but the moment I joined the zoom, my sisters brightened my day with hilarious stories about the debacles of their weeks, sweet compliments and jokes, and fun sisterhood events to take our minds off the fact we were so many miles apart.
I have made so many wonderful and amazing friends, had the unique experience as an officer for the chapter in sending out my lovely dues reminders, and being inspired constantly with what my fellow sisters are able to accomplish. They are all driven, gifted, kind, compassionate, and always willing to receive a text last minute stressing about all of the assignments you procrastinated on. I look forward to having y’all meet the amazing women I call my sisters during recruitment! I hope you find your lizard conspiracy loving friends just as I did!
