Why Adpi: Sriha Srinivasan PC'20
"ADPi's help one another out, as I myself have found myself in a dire quandary or two, only to be rescued by my knights in shining letters. And most importantly, my sisters are the ones I’ve laughed (and cried) the most with this past year. They’re my favorite humans."
Hi! My name is Sriha, I’m a second-year Human Biology & Society major and Film/TV minor, and I’m in a sorority.
Obviously, since you’re reading this. But in some ways, my participation in Greek Life is seemingly unconventional. I don’t fit the mold of a ‘sorority girl’ my immigrant parents envisioned when I suggested recruitment, and yet I enthusiastically have adopted the descriptor.
A sorority girl is someone who’s spirited about her school and her sisters. She’s someone constantly learning, gaining perspective through her experiences. She values philanthropy. She’s a leader in her chapter, and finds family within her big and little and more. She’s someone who acknowledges both the joys and the flaws of Greek Life as a whole, and pushes to make positive change within the institution.
An ADPi then, is all that and more. We live for each other, and every single ADPi I’ve met has been a joy. Passion is ubiquitous, from our creatives to our calculators, who are sometimes both at the same time. As Director of Academic Affairs here at Alpha Chi, I can tell you without a doubt that my sisters are exceptionally intelligent, standing out among an already high-achieving student body. We work smart, so that we can play hard! ADPi's help one another out, as I myself have found myself in a dire quandary or two, only to be rescued by my knights in shining letters. And most importantly, my sisters are the ones I’ve laughed (and cried) the most with this past year. They’re my favorite humans.
And that’s exactly ‘Why ADPi’. Because I’m proud to be in ADPi. I’m proud to call myself a sorority girl. I myself exemplify many of the traits I’ve outlined, but many more are ones I will grow into with the help of the bright influences I’m lucky to have been able to surround myself with.
So as I conclude my love letter to all the lovely PNMs out there, I hope you’ll be able to do the same, and furthermore, that all of us will be able to enjoy the perspective you bring as well. Best of luck with recruitment! I can’t wait to meet you <3
