The Gamma Omicron Chapter fights Cystic Fibrosis and hosts many events to raise money for these patients during the year. They host an annual color run 5k as well as a pancake fundraiser to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders) is DPhiE’s second national philanthropy. They strive to encourage body positivity and the prevention of these disorders through ANAD week every spring semester. During this week, they host events such as campus-wide yoga, a fashion show, and various percentage nights at local restaurants. Since spring 2012, Gamma Omicron has raised thousands of dollars in donations for The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.
Sisterhood is tangible and intangible all at the same time. It can be seen through actions – it can be laughing until you cry with your big. It can be late-night drives and long talks about life with your squad. It can be a hug after a hard day, a bright smile to lift you up, or a shoulder to lean on when you’re feeling down.
It can also be unseen – it can be felt. The bonds of sisterhood that only you get to share with a certain group of women give purpose to those tangible actions. Those bonds are strengthened through our shared values and beliefs, and will stay with you long after your collegiate days have passed.
A Letter from the President:
Welcome to Delta Phi Epsilon! I am glad that you have taken the time to do your research on the organizations on our campus. Joining an organization is a big commitment, whether it is Greek or otherwise, and it says a lot that you have taken the initiative to know a little bit about each sorority.
I can personally say that I would not be the woman I am today without DPhiE. I’ve grown so much simply because of the constant encouragement and support from all of my sisters – I know that they will always have my back no matter what path I may take. I have been a sister of DPhiE since my freshman year of college; I honestly do not know college life without my sorority, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’ve met so many new people through my experiences with DPhiE. I’ve held a leadership position every semester since I joined, and I have seen my confidence grow tremendously since then because of that. I have learned how to better manage my time between studying for classes, participating in our events, and having fun along the way! I have found my confidants, my shoulders to cry on, my best friends, my bridesmaids, and most importantly, my sisters for life.
Whether you participate in fall recruitment or find your home in another way, I urge you to step outside of your comfort zone and give Greek life a chance. We are more than meets the eye and you will not regret getting to know the sisters of DPhiE!
Sincerely, Sarah Thompson
