My name is Claire Grimes, and I am honored to represent the Gamma Xi Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi as the 2019 Chapter President. Becoming a member of this chapter and the Panhellenic community was one of the best decisions I made for myself when coming to college.
I was the first woman in my family to join Greek life. Naturally, I was hesitant about the process. Now, looking back on my past 3 years as a member, I can confidently say that I have created lifelong friendships, made unforgettable memories, and established professional relationships with ADPi alumnae. I have been provided with the opportunity to hold 3 leadership positions, network with successful women outside of the chapter, and build my resume. I will never forget watching the sunset at the beach with my sisters, Bachelor nights in the Chapter Room, or our annual Disneyland trips. Because of these experiences and so many more, Alpha Delta Pi has become more than just a 4 year commitment in my eyes. It is something that will last beyond my years here at UCSB.
Our chapter has also been known to show extreme passion for philanthropy and community service. We are very dedicated to our national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House Charities, as well as to several other causes that are close to many sisters’ hearts. No matter what cause you may personally care about, our sisters are always there to fully support you in giving back. We aim to give back to the best of our ability.
We also hold ourselves to a high standard in scholastic success. The countless study groups, de-stressing sisterhoods, and scholarship banquets help foster an encouraging environment to help every sister achieve their academic goals.
I am honored, humbled, and so proud to be serving as Alpha Delta Pi’s President for this upcoming year and feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to lead a group of such incredible women. My sisters never cease to impress me with their many accomplishments and successes professionally, academically, and personally. They are, and always will be, my biggest supporters, my loudest cheerleaders, my best friends, and my strongest inspiration. I will always be proud to call myself an Alpha Delta Pi woman.
