On behalf of the Board of Governors of Alpha Delta Phi, and the 25,000 alumni worldwide, it is my distinct pleasure and privilege to extend to you the greetings and friendship that are the essence of the fraternity. Alpha Delta Phi is not just an undergraduate organization, it is a lifelong experience - an experience that becomes greater over time, as you realize the value of true friendship. In most cases, the individuals who are the brothers in your chapter will become your most enduring friends. It's certainly true that the social aspects of the fraternity are important, but our commitment to community service and literary programs are major characteristics of the organization. Our literary tradition is not just a nostalgic invocation of the past, but a vital part of our programs, and an exercise of our rights of freedom of speech. We insist on community service programs from each chapter because they're desirable in and of themselves, and because they help generate good publicity, a sense of community, and a sense of accomplishment.


I encourage all our members to partake fully in the activities of the fraternity, participate actively in chapter meetings, attend regional leadership conferences, and come to our Annual Conventions. All present a great opportunity to discover the diversity and personality of Alpha Delta Phi members throughout the world. To our undergraduate members, it is most important to stress, that your college career has to take primacy in the allocation of your energy; we want you in Alpha Delta Phi, but we want you to excel academically so that you can be a successful role model for future members. In encourage you to browse this website and learn more about our history and take advantages of the resources library.
