Have some concerns about your daughter joining a sorority?
Many people tend to stereotype sororities as a bunch of girls who spend their time partying. However, when it comes to Delta Phi Omega, that could not be farther from the truth. Our school is a family in itself, but Delta Phi Omega makes Northeastern University even more like home. Delta Phi Omega is not just any organization on our campus; it is an elite organization that turns girls into strong independent women that are academically driven and service oriented. The sorority is unlike any other...we are truly a family and provide a home away from home.
What will Delta Phi Omega do for my daughter?
Delta Phi Omega is the fastest growing South-Asian interest Sorority in the nation. Therefore, not only will your daughter gain the management in college, leadership in extracurricular activities, and achieve academic excellence, but she will also have an extensive networking system she will enter into. Sisters of Delta Phi Omega from across the nation assist other sisters with receiving internships, interviews, and much more to guide them into any career path they choose to strive for.
What principles does Delta Phi Omega stand for?
Delta Phi Omega was founded on the pillars of Friendship, Honesty, Loyalty, Sisterhood, and Respect. Each pillar is very sacred to each sister and is the glue that bonds us all together. The experiences we have, the pillars we stand for, and the support of each sister is what makes Delta Phi Omega a family.
Will joining Delta Phi Omega affect my daughter's academics?
Yes, in fact, it will most likely affect her academics in a POSITIVE way! With mandatory study hours in place, each sister and every new member are required to spend adequate amounts of time studying. Academia is first and foremost the priority in college and Delta Phi Omega makes sure a high standard of good grades is held. The sorority also provides a huge network of active members and alumni who have gone through the same professors and classes, allowing them to frequently pass down helpful tips and study material to the younger members.
How does Delta Phi Omega give back to the community?
Delta Phi Omega's philanthropy is Children's Education and Literacy. Through our Literacty Through Unity Week, in the past, we have raised over thousands of dollars to donate to CARE, Pratham, and Asha for Education. Service to our community and to our philanthropy is our way of trying to give back to the less fortunate. Throughout the year some of the service events we are involved in include: Be the Change National Gandhi Day of Service, Relay for Life, and Literacy Through Unity Week. We also show support for other organizations' philanthropy events in numerous ways.
What is Delta Phi Omega's policy on alcohol?
Delta Phi Omega has a very strict policy in regards to alcohol and illicit substances. The sorority does not tolerate alcohol being consumed by any of our sisters at Delta Phi Omega events or programs. Sisters are forbidden from consuming alcohol while representing our organization. Individuals who are not twenty-one years old are highly discouraged to drink because it is against the law and we hold every sister accountable for her actions at all events.
Do I need to be South Asian to join Delta Phi Omega?
Absolutely not! While Delta Phi Omega is a South Asian interest sorority, it is not exclusive. We are proud to be an extremely diverse organization with sisters of all ethnic and racial backgrounds. We pride ourselves of making strong female leaders.
