The Pledging Process
While pledging to Adelante, new members will go through new member education. New member education is set up for the new members to learn about fraternity life as well as the history of Adelante, as well as the Greek Community at Iowa State. Each week during their pledge-ship new members meet with the New Member Educator in a relaxed meeting to get accustomed to Adelante and bond with their fellow pledge brothers.
Along with having a close bond with your pledge brothers, new members are adopted into a "family" by a Pledge Father. The Pledge Father is there to be their personal guide helping them through their pledging process and being their to aid them in whatever they may need from academic to personal needs. The Pledge Father/Son/Family bond is one of the closest bonds a member will have at Adelante, and it will continue on for the rest of their lives.
