Founded on March 17, 1917, Delta Phi Epsilon began at the New York University Law School. There are even 105 chapters, two in Canada, which makes it an international sorority!
Five girls started Delta Phi Epsilon over 100 years ago with the pledge to build a women's organization that would stand out beyond all others. They also created this sorority to accept all girls regardless of race and religion- which at the time no other membership would accept this.
There are many international philanthropies Delta Phi Epsilon is partnered with, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. There are endless amounts of support and volunteering Delta Phi Epsilon does to assist these programs. In 2016 alone, Delta Phi Epsilon raise over $471,060 to donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!
