Over a Century of Sisterhood
On March 17, 1917, five courageous women attending New York University School of Law could not find a membership accepting of all backgrounds. Therefore, they formed Delta Phi Epsilon with the purpose of accepting all races and religions–one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities to do so. Since our founding over 100 years ago, we have grown into a thriving organization with over 67,000 intiated members, representing 109 chapters located across the United States and Canada.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
I went through recruitment as a freshman in 2019, and I knew from the moment I saw sisters walking across campus with their letters proudly on their jackets, what would soon be my future letters... that was going to be the home for me. DPhiE has been the place where I got to step out of my shell and flourish, not just as a woman in college, but also as a leader. These incredible women have given me the strength to challenge what my future could be like. Standing here today as the President, I could not possibly be more proud of my accomplishments. These women walk with their heads held high and the sweetest souls. Getting to call these women my sisters is an honor and leading them is even bigger! DPhiE is home to the future women that will changes and light fires in other women for years to come just like they did for me!
