Delta Phi Epsilon is an international sorority with chapters throughout the United States and Canada. The Beta Omega chapter was established here at St. John's in 1996 through the hard work and dedication of many strong, active women. 

Delta Phi Epsilon was formed "for the purpose of promoting good fellowship among sorority women, to help in acquiring knowledge, appreciation, discriminating judgment, and a true feeling of sisterly love through the interaction of sympathetic and friendly natures". This bond of sisterhood, noted by our Founding Sisters in 1917, is built on pride in the tradition of our Sorority and support from one another.

As sorority women, we work hard to maintain the same ideals and principles upon which we were founded. We raise money every year for our philanthropies: Cystic Fibrosis, Anorexia Nervosa and associated disorders, and the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. Throughout the year, we sponsor various events with other organizations on campus, including other Greek organizations. We also hold annual sisterhood events such as our Family Holiday Party, our Mother-Daughter Brunch, our year-end "Precious Pearl" Formal, and our Summer BBQ.
