Sorority - Delta Phi Epsilon

Delta Phi Epsilon at Northeastern University began as a local sorority known as Lambda Phi Delta in 1967. Lambda Phi Delta was founded to symbolize the ideals of sister unity, scholarship, school spirit, freedom, maturity of thought, and community enrichment. 

They began to seek a national sorority that embodied the same ideals they had grown their sisterhood around, and Delta Phi Epsilon was the answer. The first pledge class of 14 women was initiated on January 19, 1969, and they received an official charter on March 30, 1969. We are proud to call ourselves the first national sorority at Northeastern and the first chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon in Boston.
