January 6-11, 2020 – ZX Recruitment Week Help Needed

From the chapter:

This year for recruitment week, Zeta Chi won’t be having a decorating committee like they have in the past. We need all hands on deck on the floor recruiting each day. We’re hoping that a handful of you would be willing and able to come into Waco for Formal Recruitment and help the recruitment team decorate. The nights that they would need your help are January 6th to the 11th. The first day of recruitment is the 7th and Bid Day is the 11th.

If you are available during these dates, please email our outgoing VP of Marketing, Sam Dietzler, and our incoming, Isabel Hamburger, at their email They’re super excited this year for Formal Recruitment but in order for it to be successful and smooth sailing, they need your help! Please email any questions to them.

Thank you!

Rescheduled for October 2-3, 2020 – Zeta Chi Chapter 40th Anniversary Celebration Weekend

Join the fun October 2-3, 2020 in WACO, TX where it all began!


 Friday,  – 6:00pm at the Baylor Club at McLane Stadium – Happy Hour hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and SISTERS! (registration required, cash bar)

 Saturday,  – We’re planning a full day of visits, ceremonies, dinners and more… stay tuned for all the details.

  • Day time details coming soon!
  • Evening Dinner and Catching Up with ADPi Sisters from All 40 years! We’ll be at the Lee Lockwood Library. It’s going to be a fun night!

We are rescheduling our weekend together!

We are living in a time when our motto means more… We live for each other!  As we face a challenging time ahead, know that we are thinking about you and praying that  you and your family are safe and healthy. As you may have guessed the pandemic affects our Zeta Chi April Celebration Weekend plans with 90 alumnae sisters registered and more committed to attending.

We are not canceling! We have paid money to vendors and it’s not possible for the ZX Alumnae Association to shoulder an entire cancellation of the event.

We are rescheduling for this fall,
October 2-3, 2020.

(There’s no home football game. It might be Silobration weekend too… but that’s not public yet.) We are hoping to BE THE FIRST to reschedule a fun time away. If you cannot attend on the new dates, we will refund your registration on a case by case basis.

We know that you understand. We can’t wait to be together in a world where it’s okay to hug, throw diamonds and kick up our heels! Please be patient with us as the Saturday daytime events are being adjusted. So, it’s not gone, we just have to wait a little longer.

If we didn’t answer your question in our comments below, please reach out to us. Reach out anyway to just say ‘hello’ too! 

What should you do If you were already registered for April?

  • Cancel your hotel room for the April date. We have contacted the Courtyard & Hilton Garden Inn – they canceled our group, but you need to individually cancel your reservation. For other lodging, contact them directly.
  • Reschedule your flights. For airline travel, we suspect you can change easily as well with this advanced notice and the global situation.  There may even be some really great deals to travel this fall!
  • Book your new hotel room NOW (BE THE FIRST to get a room! We cannot stress this enough, as it might be Silobration weekend).  We are working on other options, but here are three:
    • 1700 South 2nd Condos on Speight (sleep 4 comfortably, 6 on the couch) We have stayed here many times, and it’s wonderful. They have 10 condos on campus, so let’s fill the whole complex. Find a group and share the cost, $170 per night.  Email with your name, cell phone number, and the email address you’d like the invoice emailed to.  Please reference the dates 10/2-10/4 and the Alpha Delta Pi Chapter Anniversary to get the 10% discount. ACT FAST! BE THE FIRST!
    • Aloft Hotel is on 11th near BU and currently under construction set to open in June.  They are taking reservations and the rate is $160, for now. ACT FAST! BE THE FIRST!
    • If you want a bigger group together, Waco Vacation Rentals has houses that can accommodate 4+. 
  • If you registered and cannot attend the new dates,  please email us at Let us know you’re not available and have to cancel. We’ll be sad, but will be sure you get refunded as soon as possible.
What can you do until October?
  • Order that celebrating sisterhood t-shirt! There may be some delivery delays but we’re a go otherwise. We’ll find a reason to wear them when we are together. Sale ends March 25th.
  • Go through your boxes and closets to find ΑΔΠ photos and mementos. We will have decade tables to display goodies.
  • Scan or photo your pics and send them to include in the slide shows.
  • Save your pop tabs from all those quarantine snack cans (hit them with some sanitizer or boil them).
  • Reach out to those sisters you were planning on hugging and start the conversation now.
  • Call sisters that might not know about the event. 
  • Help us find any lost sisters so they know we are still here.
  • Share any ideas that you have…now that we’re all thinking differently about what interactions look like!
What do you have to look forward to:
  • Visiting the lion in Cameron Park
  • Shopping in our very own ADPi pop-up shop from PicsNGifts  (they’re donating 10% of profits to our philanthropy)
  • Meeting new sisters
  • A philanthropy project
  • Recharging your sister friend batteries
Look for a Zeta Chi virtual get together this spring… stay posted! The latest news always goes to Facebook groups first.

Thank you for your support and encouragement! Special thanks to the committee of 18 sisters who have been and will continue to work behind the scenes to make this event special for each of you. We leave you with the beautiful words shared by the active Baylor ADPi sisters on Tuesday. #wlfeo

Be sure that we have your email address and contact information!

About The Hopeful Theatre Project 
The Hopeful Theatre Project’s goal is to bring love, hope, and aid to the community by utilizing local talent through the performing arts to benefit various charity organizations.
The Hopeful Theatre Project is a non-profit corporation in the state of Texas founded on April 11, 2019. Our first showcase, Two Acts of Love, performed on February 16, 2019 to benefit The Ronald McDonald House Charities was a huge success! We raised over $1,000 over our anticipated goal and provided over-night stays near hospitals to hundreds of families here in the DFW metroplex. After the success of our first event, we decided to establish ourselves as an official theatre company and continue to spread hope to the community.
For more information about our corporation and our mission, please visit their social media pages!
