Mary Wells of Glasgow, a freshman at Centre College, has pledged Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
The Centre Greek community consists of eight national and international organizations (four fraternities and four sororities) dedicated to the ideals of brotherhood, sisterhood, leadership, scholastic achievement, community service, and social interaction.
Centre fraternities and sororities are active in the campus and local community, volunteering time and energy for service and philanthropic endeavors. Service and leadership projects include fundraisers for the United Way, Salvation Army, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital; mentoring at-risk local school children; and sponsoring city-wide canned-food drives. Centre Greeks average more than 12,200 service hours per year, and raise thousands of dollars for charitable organizations.
Wells is the daughter of Jeni and Marshall Wells of Glasgow and is a graduate of Glasgow High School.
Founded in 1819, Centre is ranked by U.S. News and World Report among the country's top 50 national liberal arts colleges and is the most affordable college in that group. Centre is ranked by Forbes magazine as No. 14 among all colleges and universities and as No. 1 in the South for the last two years; Consumers Digest names it the No. 1 educational value among U.S. liberal arts colleges. In addition, over the last 25 years, Centre leads all colleges and universities in the percentage of alumni who give annual financial support.
