Why Adpi: Aubrey Adams PC'19

"I cannot wait to reopen our big blue doors next month to welcome a whole new group of members home. I am so excited for the many many more movie nights, chapter dinners, and shower parties to come."


Hi PNMs!!

My name is Aubrey and I am a third year Communications major and Music Industry and Scandinavian Studies minor from Orange County!


I joined ADPi as a freshman in 2019 and (I know it sounds crazy cheesy and cliche) it was the best decision of my college career. I am one of the lucky few that knew exactly what I wanted before I even started the recruitment process. I remember being in line for the very first day of recruitment (which was technically orientation) at Royce Hall and I met Bella Acosta, who is also an ADPi now. We both remember our conversation that day and how I told Bella that I knew I was going to be an ADPi. I also had that same conversation a few hours later with my Rho Gamma, Grace Morgan (who I later found out was also an ADPi). Grace warned me that I should at least meet all of the other chapters before I became set on Alpha Delta Pi but I had a gut feeling that ADPi was about to become my home.


The second I walked through the blue doors I knew right away that my gut feeling was correct. The girls at ADPi blew me away. I had never met such genuine and honestly kind women before. Round three distinctly sticks with me because that was the day I met my big and best friend Ava Folland. The second we met, our energies just clicked and we were instantly on the same wavelength. The immediate bond between our positive outlooks on life and love for classic rock music sparked a best friendship and sisterhood that will quite literally last a lifetime. I already have my future bridesmaids dresses picked out to be a color that Ava looks best in;)


More important than why I chose ADPi is why I stayed in ADPi. I had a rough start to my freshman year and I felt extremely lost and alone but ADPi quickly turned that around. When I was unhappy with my dorm, ADPi opened its doors to me and quickly offered me a place to move-in and make a home. The older girls in the house made me feel incredibly welcomed and valued. Despite being a freshman living with many upperclassmen, I was always invited to Teen Wolf nights in the TV room and included in late-night Pizookie runs.


Now, as Director of Facility Management, I feel as if I have the opportunity to give back to the house that gave me so much love. I cannot wait to reopen our big blue doors next month to welcome a whole new group of members home. I am so excited for the many many more movie nights, chapter dinners, and shower parties to come.


My best advice for PNMs is to find a chapter that feels like home and gives you a warm welcoming feeling. You are not just choosing a sorority, you are choosing lifelong friends, memories, and feelings. I chose and stayed in ADPi for that exact fuzzy feeling and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
