Today, I am at the Sorority House complex with the sisters and founders of Second Life’s newest Sorority who is currently recruiting new members- Alpha Delta Rho. While most would consider such to be nothing more than social club, or just another group, these ladies are serious about sisterhood, kinship, friendship and personal development.
Accepting the privilege of being allowed on the complex and freely perusing the expansive house grounds, you can see the hard work and the dedication that each of the founders and its leaders has put into this endeavor- this isn’t just another FAD Group or Club. It’s a group of women who sincerely believe that women are subjected to a great deal of negativity even in today’s modern society.
They believe that within each of them, there’s something that is distinctly female, and when properly nurtured, that individual can rise above societal expectations, and what society has adapted them to be, and make strides toward becoming who they were created to become. It was founded on common ideals of loyalty, trust, dedication, friendship, kinship, and sisterhood; a bond that is immeasurable.
The symbolism in the Alpha Delta Rho crest seemingly reiterates those values with a Chain, Rose, Butterfly and Heart. The Chain represents the bond and strength between the sisters and the sorority, while the butterfly is a representation of the transformation that takes place. The Yellow Tea Rose is the sororities flower, it signifies good cheer, renewal and hope and is in celebration of that which is female. The heart symbol is composed of imagery linked to living, loving and laughing.
They aspire to reach out to women all across Second Life, so that they too can join in this experience of sisterhood. While they are new establishment, they aspire and are dedicated to making themselves known by participating in charity events, modeling opportunities, theatre and art, individual business establishments, art and music.
Meeting with the ladies of Alpha Delta Rho today, I made further inquiry.
