IN GOVERNMENT

Alpha Delta Phi has provided opportunities for fellowship, fun and personal growth almost over 50,000 men since 1832. The goal is, simply put to help each other mold ourselves in to better men, morally socially and intellectually.

 

Here is a brief list of those more well known men who have taken what they learned in Alpha Delta Phi and used it for the betterment of their community, their country and the rest of humanity. The list has been divided into categories (Business, Science and Engineering, Sports, Entertainment, Education, Literature and Journalism, Science and Engineering, Government) and includes past and present activities and is in no sense all-inclusive.
