On October 17th and 18th, student leaders from 6 of our fraternities and our 4 sororities attended the first ever Greek Leadership Retreat at Gettysburg College. The students, along with 6 faculty and professional staff members, spent the first day touring the Battlefield, learning the history of the Battle of Gettysburg. During the tour, the students learned about the men who served in leadership positions, how they made decisions, and ultimately what made them either successful or a failure. On the second day, there was a classroom session where the students drew parallels between themselves and the men they learned about the previous day. They were able to think about their own strengths and weaknesses and identify how what they learned during the trip would help them be better leaders for their organizations.
LANCASTER, Penn. (Nov. 20, 2011) – The 139th active chapter of Alpha Delta Pi sorority was installed at Franklin & Marshall College this weekend.

Following initiation, charter members welcomed their families, friends, and college guests to an installation brunch at Lancaster Marriott Penn Square on Sunday. More than 160 attended and watched Alpha Delta Pi International President Tammie Pinkston install the new chapter officers. “The enthusiasm of our newest members and engagement of the parents who attended the Installation brunch bodes well for the continued success of our newest chapter,” Pinkston said.
Kaitlin Kines, Theta Lambda chapter’s new president, was presented with the chapter’s charter by Ms. Pinkston. “Representing Alpha Delta Pi as chapter president…will be the greatest and most rewarding endeavor I have taken on thus far outside of my academic career,” Ms. Kines said. “The excitement that each sister has for the future of this ADPi chapter is infectious.”
Kines was also presented with the official chapter gavel on behalf of the sorority by District III Team Director Karen Galentine.
