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. The Psi chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon was originally chartered in 1935 and re-chartered on December 6, 2015 at the University of Georgia with over 150 members.
Our sisters are very proud of our motto “esse quam videri,” to be rather than to seem to be. At Delta Phi Epsilon we embrace everyone for who they are and encourage them to be their best selves. We encourage our sisters to never change who they are just to fit in. We are proud to be a diverse group of women who hold our values of justice, sisterhood, and love in high esteem.
The sisters of the Psi chapter balance their participation on campus with dedication to academics. While being heavily involved on campus, sisters have been named to the President’s List, the Dean’s List, and Order of Omega. Our deep involvement on campus is something we are very passionate about; our sisters are involved in UGA Miracle, UGA HEROs, Relay for Life, University Union, UGA Club Cheer, Red Hotz, Club Swimming, Club Soccer, and an abundance of many other teams and organizations. We are so excited to welcome you to UGA recruitment and wish you the best of luck!
