The Local Alpha Delta. Pi Palace. ADPi. Whatever people may call it, I am lucky to call it home for sophomore, junior, and senior year.
Living in ADPi for the past two years has been such an amazing experience, so much so that I have decided to live there for all three years after having moved out of my freshman dorm, Birnkrant. Through my time living in ADPi, I have had the wonderful opportunity to live in a six-man, four-man, and two-man room, with over 10 different sisters as roommates. This semester, I am living in a two-man with Emily.
Living in ADPi is such a great experience. I share a house with 55 different girls and our house mom, and I love every moment of it. My favorite part is that ADPi was built as an actual home rather than for dorm-style living, so every room feels like a bedroom in a real house and it truly has that home-y feel. I spend many nights studying in our den, which serves as a quiet place for us all to get our work done. When I am not doing my homework, I have fun lying out on our lawn in the beautiful sun!
However, my favorite parts of living in ADPi are the meals I get to share with my sisters. We have a chef that provides meals for us on the weekdays, which is really nice because it saves me time having to make or buy food. There are set mealtimes and during these we all get to catch up and see how everyone else is doing. It truly is like a family dinner. Our house mom even joins us and we get to catch her up on each of our lives.
Overall, living in ADPi has been such a great decision. Getting to share a home with so many incredible girls, and going home to such a welcoming environment makes those long days in class so much better.
