What are the key benefits of being a member of Alpha Delta Mu?
At the student level, the benefits of belonging to Alpha Delta Mu include access to educational and supervisory support from mentors in the local chapter. Mentors may be upper-level seniors, graduate candidates or social work professionals who are society alumni participating in chapter activities.
Based on the information, here is our review:
- Alpha Delta Mu does not appear to have an official website which makes it hard to find readily available information on the society, meaning it may be more of an on-campus type of club.
- Juniors and Seniors are the only students able to join the organization, but Seniors may also become mentors for younger members.
- We found it very interesting that their motto is "Advocate of the People," as this is a social work honor society.
