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.
Adelante proudly has a no hazing policy. Hazing is against Adelante and
Iowa State University laws, rules, and standards. We believe at Adelante
that hazing goes completely against what we are trying to do; build a
successful and lasting brotherhood. Hazing will absolutely not be tolerated
and anti-hazing policies are strictly enforced throughout recruitment, new
member education, and activation.
There are two scholarships available to new members.
The first is available for a new members first year if they are living in-house.
The amount awarded varies on the GPA recieved by the new member each semester
of that year. In the past iPads have also been awarded in addition.
The next is available every semester a member lives in house. If a member
receives a 3.0 GPA or higher he qualifies for the scholarship. The amount
awarded varies depending members, but has a minimum of $500.
These scholarships are possible because of the Adelante Education Foundation,
and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support.
One big thing that many wonder about is the cost. Our rate at Adelante is
$3250 a semester. The cost covers room & board, and 10 catered meals a week.
This is cheaper than living in the dorms and is about the same price as a
middle priced apartment/house. Out-of-house membership fee is currently $400.
