Delta Phi Epsilon
Found in 1917 as the first sorority committed to a membership that does not discriminate based on race or creed, Delta Phi Epsilon is an organization built on the bonds of sisterhood, pride in sorority, and support for one another. We are the oldest international sorority on campus. It's an incredible feeling to be involved in something that is worldwide! Plus, our mascot is a unicorn...it doesn't get much better than that! Sisterhood in Delta Phi Epsilon is based on five ideals, or pearls, that each sister works toward each semester. The pearls, also known as the five S's (sisterhood, social, service, scholarship, self), encourage members to dedicate themselves to a lifetime of learning and growing. With DEDICATION to our founding principles, PRIDE in association and, above all, a commitment to EXCELLENCE in all that we do, the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon continue to live out the dream of our founders.
