Alpha Delta Phi is very active in intramurals with a particular emphasis on floor hockey, football, and basketball. Non-athletic events include a house sponsored trip each semester to an Alpha Delta Phi chapter house on various campuses across the country.
Because our house is located right by Lake Mendota, we have developed an annual winter philanthropy usually during the last week in February called Soft Ball on Ice. This event brings together about twenty fraternities and sororities on campus to play a round robin softball tournament on the frozen lake. On top of entrance fees, we generate revenue from both sponsors as well as t-shirts (with a new design made every year). While the charity we play for changes most years, we typically raise over $2000.
There are two non live-in scholarships offered. One is the George and Elizabeth Archer Scholarship (2 given) for $1000 toward tuition. The second is the Book Scholarship (2-6 given) for $250 toward textbooks. There is also one live-in scholarship. For these scholarships, applications are sent out to incoming male students the spring semester before they are to come to school. Applicants are narrowed down based on academic excellence and overall well-roundedness and then invited to interview and tour the house. For those that are selected to live in the fraternity the scholarship carries with it a $200 monthly rent discount. The number of these scholarships will vary from year to year.
