Welcome to Adelante Fraternity

Adelante, located at Iowa State University, is the longest continuously running local fraternity in the nation. We have maintained our charter since 1907, through both world wars and the great depression. Our chapter was founded on three main ideals: Scholarship, Fellowship, and Leadership. We strive to fulfill and live up to these ideals.

Thank You for the Turnout

I wish to thank everyone who participated in Adelante’s 110th Anniversary celebration this weekend!! We had a great turnout and it was awesome to see the alumni and the current house members connecting and appreciating our common bond as brothers. Being a local fraternity, we are unique and our ability to continue to promote our values of scholarship, leadership and fellowship over the years in truly the stuff legends are made of. I would also like to thank our special guests Dr. Cynthia Knight and Jennifer Sayers, who came promote the cause of the Iowa Net High Academy, which helps high school dropouts receive their degrees.This a special cause that was supported our brother, Don Jordahl, who passed away in late 2016. Please consider making them one of the charities you donate to. Again, thank you.
