Throughout the year, Alpha Delta Pi hosts a number of date functions and formals.
In the fall at Mallard Ball, sisters and their dates dress up in their best hunting-themed apparel and head off to a local barn. It is an unforgettable night of camo, dancing, and mechanical bull riding!
In the spring, we hold our annual Date Draft. For this event sisters invite three dates, and everyone wears their favorite sports jersey. Besides being a great time, this event is always memorable because it is the first date function we hold after welcoming our newest pledge class!
At our formals, sisters and their dates dress their best and travel to one of the beautiful venues around Charlottesville. This year's Parent's Formal was held at Boar's Head Inn and Semi-Formal was held at Verlum Farms. After delicious dinners, everyone was welcome to dance the night away!
In addition to all of the time we spend with one another on a regular basis, Alpha Delta Pi also plans sisterhood events for members. These events help sisters to stay connected in the face of busy college lives and provide great study breaks on the weekends!
