A Rich Sisterhood Experience

The motto of DPhiE is “esse quam videri” which means “to be rather than to seem to be” and our founding mothers – though they had vastly different backgrounds – all identified with the mission of being true to yourself.  Sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon strive to help each other become the best version of themselves that they can be.  Since our founding, we have grown to over 500 members, and we are excited to watch our sisterhood continue to grow and flourish at St. John's University.

Whenever you go on the St. John's campus, you can find a DPhiE sister in classes, academic clubs, social clubs, sports, and other performance activities.  Our sisters demonstrate our founding principles of justice, sisterhood, and love in all that they do, whether it is by holding leadership positions in their extracurriculars or by always being the first volunteer for support.  This investment in making St. John's University a better place, for whatever we are passionate in, helps make being part of our sisterhood a rich and exciting experience.
