DPhiE - Epsilon Lambda

Houghton, Michigan

"To promote good fellowship among the women students among the various colleges in the country...to create a secret society composed of these women based upon their good moral character, regardless of nationality or creed..."

Attending law school when you don’t have basic voting rights is a bold move. Our Founders were bold, courageous students who challenged the status quo and did not let society define their future. They were forward-thinking women who saw beyond what sorority was and knew what it could be. 

On March 17, 1917, these five bold women attending New York University School of Law could not find a membership accepting of all backgrounds. So they formed Delta Phi Epsilon with the purpose of accepting all races and religions–one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities to do so.

Today, Delta Phi Epsilon heads into our Centennial year. Since our founding nearly 100 years ago, we have grown into a thriving organization with over 67,000 initiated members and chapters located across the United States and Canada. Sisters find more than a home or friendship in DPhiE.

We find empowerment to live authentic and purposeful lives.

The Epsilon Lambda Chapter at Michigan Technological University. 

Delta Phi Epsilon is an organization that is built on the bonds of sisterhood, pride in the sorority, and support for one another.

At the Epsilon Lambda chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon, value is not just a word, but a part of our everyday lives. Not only do we strive to live up to the values that we agreed to uphold when we joined the organization, but we also value our sisters, service to our community and being a positive influence on the world around us. 

Our sorority was founded over 30 years ago at Michigan Tech. We constantly strive to be integral parts of the university and the community around us.
