INVOLVEMENT: The sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon exemplify their motto: “Esse Quam Videri” which means “to be, rather than to seem to be'' through various involvement opportunities on and off campus. They represent the chapter by taking leadership roles in Florida Cicerones, Florida Blue Key, Dance Marathon, Strike Magazine, Project Makeover, and many other organizations around Gainesville. Just last summer, the sisters founded a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee with five subcommittees for Racial, Lingual, and Ethnic Diversity, Accessibility, Women’s Environment, LGBTQIA+, and Metal Health. The women who make up this chapter carry the values: Justice, Sisterhood, and Love throughout their involvement experiences, through their everyday lives, and beyond.
#westicktogether because our sisterhood is more than the 10 months we spend together in Gainesville each year. DPhiE lasts a lifetime - you’ll always have someone there for you. A sister of Delta Phi Epsilon is cheered on and uplifted throughout all her endeavors, within these four years at UF and beyond. Delta Phi Epsilon means strong women who are inspired everyday to be the best version of themselves and those who make the 1115 house a home.
