Becoming An Alpha Delta Pi

The day that I’d been anticipating since joining my sorority here at Hanover was the day that I officially became a member and am now able to wear the badge that is our symbol. Leading up to “the big day,” my Big Diamond Sister as well as some other members of my sorority left me presents and…
