In today's world a woman can be so many things. You can be a friend, be a mother, be a teacher, or even be the president for example. Delta Phi Epsilon encourages each sister to above all else, be true to who you are.
The mission of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority is to cultivate a sisterhood dedicated to the personal development of women.
The vision is by mobilizing dynamic women to influence and impact communities.
Delta Phi Epsilon was formed...
"for the purpose of promoting good fellowship among sorority women... to help... in acquiring knowledge, appreciation, discriminating judgment, and a true feeling of sisterly love through the interaction of sympathetic and friendly natures."
- From the notes of our Founders, 1917
Delta Phi Epsilon History
On March 17, 1917, five women at New York University Law School took a pledge of sisterhood and loyalty and so founded the Alpha Chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon, one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities and the only one founded at a professional school. Five years later on March 17, 1922, Delta Phi Epsilon was formally incorporated under laws of the State of New York.
Beta Chi Chapter- St. Norbert College
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 at St. Norbert. 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 five women that started Delta Phi Epsilon's Alpha Chapter are known as the DIMES.
