I'm a longtime lurker and I have to say I joined simply so I could post about how much this thread has reinforced the reasons I joined my sorority this past spring. Thank you for sharing all your stories and I hope I can contribute my own at some point in the future.

Two stories, one as a collegiate, one from alumna:

1) I was dating a man from a fraternity, and we were pinned. One night, we sat down and talked about our relationship, and agreed that we really did not have a future, and it was time to be honest with each other. There were no hard feelings, just the sadness of two years of thinking that we would marry and the grim realization that it wasn't going to happen. This happened over the summer.

The next term, I was bringing a lot of things up to the ADPi Suite (where I lived) and as I was getting into the elevator, he and his new girlfriend got on with me. He immediately took one of the bags with which I was struggling, and insisted on coming up to our floor. While his new girlfriend waited at the elevator, he helped me get my things to my new room.

Later that night, the sadness finally overtook me. It wasn't from wanting him, as I knew that we would be friends when we saw each other, it was more from loneliness. As I was sobbing in my room, another sister (who was not really a close sister at the time) came in, put her arms around me and told me that he wasn't worth it, I had thousands of sisters who loved me, I had too much to offer, etc. This sounds so stupid, typing it out, but Ginny saved my sanity that night. I'm not sure if she ever completely understood that I wasn't crying from him, but I will forever thank her.

2) The night before my recent wedding, I realized that I had left my sorority pin in my hometown! I was so upset, but I emailed the sisters (neither of whom I had ever met, except from GreekChat!) if I could borrow one of their pins. Both lent me their pins! Both were also blue - one had aquamarine points, and the other had the turquoise instead of pearls! So, I had "something borrowed AND something blue" - both from dear, dear ADPi sisters! I didn't throw my bouquet at the reception, but polarpi and ASUADPi, I still have it with me. If you need to catch a bouquet, we can work that out for you!

Lastly, the older I get (me, old?!), the more I'm sure that Alpha Delta Pi is a constant in my life. I only wish that every sorority woman gets the lifetime experience that I have been fortunate enough to enjoy!

2)

1) Back in like 2003, I went to Southern CA to meet Polarpi and another sister that I only knew via Greekchat. The other sister picked me up from the airport and I stayed with her. My parents, prior to me leaving, asked me "why would someone who doesn't know you pick you up and let them stay with you", I told my parents "because we are sisters".

2) A similar situation happened in 2004. My brother was in the AZ national guard and was at Fort Dix. He was scheduled to be deployed to Kuwait in December. As we knew we wouldn't get to spend Christmas with him, my parents and I went to him for Thanksgiving. As I couldn't afford a hotel, a sister (who I met on Greekchat), offered to pick me up from the airport and stay with her (and her family). She even was gracious enough to pick my brother up from Dix, as he was released on break early and my parents flew into Philly (I fly into Jersey).

Other little things have happened in my life where I've been not only grateful for my ADPi sisters but for my Panhellenic sisters as well.

Having multiple sisters, your house mom, and your house mom's mom (both of whom are also sisters) all sending get well texts/Facebook messages the minute they find out you're back in the hospital... It's the little things that mean the most

My story starts on page 17...on the right half of the page, it's called, "She may have Died, but I am my Mother's Sister."
Bumping because this is beautiful.

Thanks UofM-TKE! You made my night. I can't believe it's been almost 10 years. Funny how time just keeps going.

Andrea and I are still dear friends...I recently have moved to MD (we were in England), and our first house guests in our new home were Andrea, her husband, and little girl! We went to the Maryland Zoo together and here are the pics to prove it!

Andrea and me:


And the kids (my two anchorboys and her little DG Legacy):

Ahh that's so sweet! Stories like yours with your mother and with Andrea are some of the many reasons why I am so proud and thankful to call myself a sister of Delta Gamma

Definitely proof that it's not for four years, Sisterhood is for a lifetime!

Bumping!

Always time for heart-warming stories!

It may seem like a small thing, but a Gamma Phi sister I met on-line here at GC picked me up and dropped me off at Newark airport when I was on "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?".
