Close out the first week of classes with an evening of all of your favorite card games not played with a standard deck. Apples to Apples, Uno, Flux, etc. Especially Apples to Apples! Feel free to bring your own games, too.

There will be snacks, and everyone is welcome.

    Alpha delt has a reputation for being geeky and oversexual. Neither of these stereotypes really hold much for the current membership of ADPhi. I love Alpha Delt; seriously, go check it out, and make up your own mind. I’ve had some of my best college times at the house.

    Another ADP’er here: Basically, people don’t like ADP as a social entity because the parties they used to throw were not all that much fun (see: the Goth Party) or fairly sketchy (see: the Underwear Dance Party). The sketchiness/lameness mostly stemmed from the fact that that the parties were always dry, (because the university makes it difficult to throw parties with alcohol) and successful Psi-Uish/Eclecticy dry dance parties are hard to throw there, especially with the rep that ADP gets as throwing lame parties (see how these things reinforce themselves?). Thus, people began to associate ADP with sketchy, not-fun events, and begin to stereotype the membership as likewise, sketchy and lame. However, a large portion of the current membership really hates this reputation because it’s based around a stereotype that we had no hand in creating or perpetuating, and causes people to make judgments (and causes others to say some really dickish things) regarding ADP without bothering to actually check it out. Sure, ADP is not for everybody, but it’s by no means social suicide. -ADP member

    Actually, we quite like beer. And fun. And I’m not so sure about the annoyed part. I will give you the things that take less then an unreasonably long amount of time art, though :D Actually, it’s not so much that we like them, but they do happen.–ADPer

    1:14–As 3:09 suggests, no there is not going to beer at this event. Or any event that is posted about on Wesleying, unless it mentions that it is offcially allowing alchohal (in which case you’ll need an ID saying you’re over 21 anyway). Wesleying does not post about parties with alchohal, for the obvious reason that then PSafe would know what to break up.

    oh silly 1:14, nobody posts about real parties on wesleying…get over yourself guys, ADP is not social suicide (although like with almost any group like that on campus, i admit it’s not a scene i can handle all the time) … so go be a troll on the acb or something.

    uh, yeah, anyone who has every bothered to actually go to Alpha Delt or get to know some of its members will know that the ‘social suicide’ stigma is complete bullshit. At the very least, the stigma is based on a generation of Alpha Delts who have long since graduated. The current members are nice folks who want to hang out with all kinds of people, regardless of whether those people are in ADP.

    As someone who is not a member of ADP and has discovered that it’s not really “my scene,” I still want to say that joining Alpha Delt is NOT social suicide. This is college, not middle school, and while there are a number of people on campus who are anti-alpha delt, I can attest that I have several friends who are members and are still very well liked on campus and have many friends outside of Alpha Delt. So it makes me mad when people try to make a group of people untouchables. If you like ADP, go for it, if not, then don’t. It’s not such a big deal.Okay, I’m sorry, I’ll stop ranting and go away.

    Just to be clear, going to an event like this is NOT always the same as saying you want a bid, and ADPers are aware of this…we really do just want you to come to play Apples to Apples for the fun of it.Giving bids to all the people who come to our events is just not how we run things.–ADPer

    Alpha Delta Phi is a co-ed literary society on campus. (It’s kind of like a frat, but different.) A bid is an invitation to pledge the society.ADPhi has lots of great people in it; frosh, it’s totally worth checking out to see if it’s your scene!
