One huge draw to Delta Phi Epsilon was it’s philanthropies. Delta Phi Epsilon has two organizations that we are involved with philanthropically, ANAD and CFF. Each year, DPhiE tries to out-do themselves when it comes to the events, promotion and raising money. The promotion of philanthropy and these events become bigger and better as the years go by.
Sororities (and Fraternities) support a wide range of charitable causes across the nation. Most make an annual, national commitment to the same cause . A basic tenet of all National Panhellenic Conference member groups is service, a word that most sorority women take seriously from college well into their retirement years. NPC’s 26 member sororities, Alumnae Panhellenic associations and College Panhellenic associations have the freedom to choose how they spend their service time. “The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live,” according to the NPC Creed.
DPhiE now recognizes ANAD twice, once in fall semester and once in spring semester, by the sisters. ANAD advocates for the development of healthy attitudes, bodies, and behaviors. The organization promotes eating disorder awareness, prevention and recovery through supporting, educating, and connecting individuals, families and professionals.
Today is our third annual Deepher Dude (man) pageant. All proceeds go to ANAD. I couldn’t be more excited to be back at Winona State for this monumental moment for my Chapter (Alpha Tau). Participating in a cause that is so near to my heart is exciting. I am excited for my Chapter to woo me with their knowledge, grace, hilarity, and creativity. The toughest challenge is getting people to an event, but once they are there– sit back, relax, because these girls are going to stomp the stage. I have a great feeling about this Deepher Dude event.
Remember, beauty isn’t a mold; break it.
