Adelante - Adelante

318 Welch Ave
Ames, IA 50014

Founded in 1907, Adelante is the oldest continuously running, local, independent fraternity. Meaning, that from 1907 to today, we have never had to close our doors, change our name, or join a national. Adelante is based on three ideals: Scholarship, Fellowship, and Leadership. Upholding these ideals has been a driving point of the house, because the strive to be the best at these three ideals has a direct line to success.

Philanthropy One popular philanthropy that we host is the Dunk Tank during VEISHEA weekend. Along with the dunk tank, we also sell brats to raise money for a local non-profit organization.
