With guidance from our three pillars, Brotherhood, Discipline, and Commitment, Delta Epsilon Psi has experienced tremendous amount of success in our short history and has reached numerous milestones. In its twelve years existence, Delta Epsilon Psi has accomplished more in their community then many fraternities accomplish throughout their existence. Delta Epsilon Psi has gained many strides in there short history from distinct service events all the way to promoting South Asian representation on campus.
“Quality over Quantity” is something that has been established in Delta Epsilon Psi from the beginning. Delta Epsilon Psi averages 20 actives per chapter; however this fraternity accomplishes the equivalent to fraternities with over 80 members on the same campus. This hard work and dedication to service is one of the primary reasons why Delta Epsilon Psi is recognized widely throughout the United States as an extremely dedicated fraternity.
Each year it gets harder and harder for a fraternity to strive for excellence, but Delta Epsilon Psi has taken it upon themselves to grow and adapt every year. With intelligent and creative members, Delta Epsilon Psi constantly creates new ideas to better the community. When looking below and viewing some of the many accomplishments and milestones Delta Epsilon Psi has reached over the years one must ask themselves two questions: How old is Delta Epsilon Psi? And how big are they compared to other fraternities? These questions are important, because at a relativity young age (in fraternity years) Delta Epsilon Psi’s achievements are well beyond its years.
