All Alpha Delts and their loved ones are invited to attend the Bowdoin Alpha Delta Phi Society Alumni Association’s annual meeting to take place virtually on June 6th, 2020 at 1 pm ET. Because Bowdoin has cancelled all summer events this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person meeting for the first time in our history. Per our amended bylaws, members of the Bowdoin chapter are eligible to vote virtually in our annual meeting provided they have attended at least 1 annual meeting, either in person or virtually, in the past 3 years. However, everyone is invited to attend even if they are not eligible to vote.
It saddens me to announce that our annual reunion in Brunswick will not be happening this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bowdoin has cancelled all summer programs which includes our reunion. 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.

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.

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.

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.
