With COVID, some people were forced together with family whom they may have been like “ships that pass in the night” – while others were totally isolated from friends and family.
Both extremes and everyone in between struggled with sudden change in community/connection. The lockdown placed a huge spotlight on the relationships we operate in- from our intimate family gatherings to how we relate to the world. Because the pandemic rocked everything about how we relate, our mental health (as a nation and individuals) was deeply challenged.
Anne Marie joins us to speak to our collective and individual mental health and the effects of healthy relationships. True self care cannot exist in a vacuum. HEALTHY Community is paramount!
Speaker – with Anne Marie Floyd Prewitt, ZX Sister and Professional Counselor
“My name is Andrea Gagliano and I am a recovering hoarder. As I tell my clients, I am messy by nature and organized by choice. This should give everyone hope because as Dave Ramsey went from massive debts to all cash, even the messiest of us can embrace our inner Marie Kondo! I recall a time when I lived in a tiny dorm room, my first year as an Alpha Delta Pi. My parents had recently moved too far away for me to store items at their home so I had quite a lot crammed into my tiny space which I shared with a fellow ADPi who happened to be extremely tidy. One day I came home and found most of my items, including my excessive toiletry collection had been removed and organized! A few of my sweet sisters had staged an intervention of sorts and I was horrified and incredibly pleased all at the same time. This is one of the many things that catapulted me onto the path I am on now to always find ways to improve and streamline our lives so that we can spend more time focusing on the people and things that matter!”
The alumnae sisters of the Zeta Chi Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi are honored to be celebrating 40 years on the Baylor Campus. Since November 15, 1980, the Zeta Chi Chapter has been proud to be a part of the panhellenic community at Baylor University.
Originally called the Adelphean Society, Alpha Delta Pi is the first secret society for women in the world and forged the way for women in the fraternity system. We were founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan Female College – the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women.
Founder Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald was just sixteen years old when she left her family to attend Wesleyan College. At such a young age and during a time when it was rare for women to go to college, she recognized the importance of women coming together for personal development and improvement. She and her five closest friends founded the Adelphean Society. In 1909, she wrote a letter to our Alpha chapter in which she states, “Whatever I have done worth remembering, I know that the founding of our society is one of them.”
