At our social a few weeks ago, some of us were talking about our individual chapters’ traditions. I’m a member of Eta Beta chapter-Allegheny College, and one of our traditions was playing and singing “American Pie” (replacing the lyric with Alpha Delta Pi) at the end of our social functions.
Many of us carried the tradition over to our weddings. At mine, we ended the evening with karaoke, so I made sure I was scheduled last. I requested “American Pie” and asked all my sisters to join me in singing (and dancing!).
I lost some people on account of this being the last thing of the night…we’d been a much larger group earlier in the evening! Here’s the full group (I think) from a bit earlier. I have a lot of versions of this picture…I do not seem to have one where everyone is looking at the camera. Or, A camera. 😉

We also started a tradition of wearing blue and white ribbons–serving as the bride’s “something blue,” but also worn by all of the sisters at the wedding. Here is Jen pinning my ribbons to my underskirt:
Carrying on these traditions makes me so happy…what are some of your chapter traditions, and what traditions have you carried with you after graduating?
