We will be holding our annual corporation meeting virtually on June 6th at 1pm eastern time. More details will be posted, including how to sign up to attend the meeting virtually.

Join us for the 175th Anniversary of the Bowdoin Alpha Delta Phi in Brunswick, Maine! July 28-31, 2016

This summer at 228 Maine Street, our chapter will gather to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the establishment of Alpha Delta Phi Society at Bowdoin College. All Alpha Delts and their guests are welcome! This landmark event will coincide with the 16th/184th Alpha Delta Phi Society convention in Brunswick, which we are proudly hosting for the second time since 1997.

 The ΑΔΦ Society Bowdoin Reunion Committee has planned a full weekend of reminiscences, celebrations, and pride in our extraordinary legacy. In addition to an open bar and ample social time at the chapter house, highlights include:

Δ Friday, July 29, 3 till 5 pm: Open House for Alpha Delts at Bowdoin’s Special Collections department, a curated display of historical artifacts such as house meeting minutes from ΑΔΦ Society’s original founding years, memorabilia from Joshua Chamberlain’s era, and items honoring our brothers who have served as President of the College.

Δ Friday, July 29, 6 pm: Traditional Bowdoin campus Lobster Bake for chapter alumni and guests, along with ΑΔΦ Society conventioneers.

Δ Saturday, July 30, noon until 1 pm: Annual Meeting of ΑΔΦ Society Alumni Association, at the chapter house.

Δ Saturday, July 30, 6 pm: ΑΔΦ Society Banquet and Awards Ceremony at the Brunswick Hotel & Tavern.

Also, as part of the weekend’s activities, we will honor the men and women who took part in the refounding of Alpha Delta Phi in 1976 as a fully co-ed entity. Their bold conception of what a fraternity could be has reverberated through the years, at Bowdoin and far beyond.

With the ΑΔΦ Society’s convention taking place at the Brunswick Hotel and Tavern, you’ll be able to meet some wonderful young Alpha Delts and marvel at their literary endeavors. They do our founders and refounders proud!

The registration process is a menu, and you can choose whatever you’d like to sign up for: dinners, open bar access, several housing options, T-shirts…craft the weekend you want.

Come back to campus from July 28-31, to revel in our strong bonds of fellowship, to reflect on our rich history, to remark on our ever-growing legacy!
