Delta Phi Omega Sorority, Inc. was founded at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas on December 6, 1998. The sixteen National Founding Mothers of Delta Phi Omega Sorority recognized the need for an organization to promote the advancement of South Asian women.
Seventeen women from various backgrounds came together with the common goal of uniting women among the South Asian community. The Founds created the backbone of this sorority on the bases of the five pillars of Sisterhood, Respect, Loyalty, Honesty, and Friendship. They envisioned an organization that would highlight the diverse South Asian culture through Participation in community and social service projects.
Through determination and perseverance, this vision soon became a reality and has become one of the most highly sough after organizations for South Asian women across the United States. With each passing year, Delta Phi Omega continues to grow and make its presence known not only within the respective universities but also within the community.
Foreseeing rapid expansion of the sorority and acknowledging the need for a central governing entity, several alumni sisters took the initiative to form the first National Council of Delta Phi Omega Sorority, Inc., possessing jurisdiction over all component parts of the sorority.
Northeastern University's first South Asian Interest Sorority, Delta Phi Omega Sorority, Inc. was founded on January 25, 2003. Along with the excitement, we each believed that through the strength of our bonds of sisterhood, we would be determined to stand together rather than standing alone. With building a steady foundation, we believe the sorority's five pillars will keep us together through thick and thin. Honesty, Respect, Friendship, Loyalty, and Sisterhood are the five ideals we would like to serve both our South Asian community as well as the greater community of Boston.
We strive to promote community service, leadership, and education to develop a greater continuation for the poor, the needy, and the less fortunate. As we continue with our mission, our motivation is our future generation. Our philanthropy is Children's Literacy and Education. We believe that every child has a right to success. We are determined to make the difference in their lives.
We would like to thank those who believed in us, our friends, family, teachers, and most of all our brothers and sisters. As we say, "We came this far, why not go a step further?" Our long lasting commitment motivates us to keep our promise to uphold the pillars that our sixteen National Founding Mothers have set forth.
