This past March 17th, 2017 was not like any other March 17th for the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon. One hundred years prior, a group of women at New York University Law School founded the international sorority that now comprises 105 active chapters. The University of Georgia’s own Psi chapter, along with active sisters and alumni from fellow Georgia chapters and beyond, came together at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel in Atlanta this past March 31st to celebrate one hundred years of justice, sisterhood, and love.
This Centennial Celebration was truly one to remember. The ballrooms were filled with the sorority’s purple and gold colors, countless irises, and inspiring women, some of whom gave moving speeches on the impact this organization has had on them. Psi’s own Arleen Honick, a member of Delta Phi Epsilon’s International Governing Board, gave one of the nights most memorable speeches, and thanked everyone for braving the I-85 traffic to be there for such a special night.
The DPhiE sisters had a lovely time, and danced the night away with fellow sisters from various chapters, including those from the University of North Georgia’s Gamma Omega chapter and Kennesaw State University’s Alpha Epsilon chapter. Competitive spirits ran high at the silent auction tables, and food and beverages were served in abundance. The night came to an end far too soon, yet all were delighted to have spent such an incredible night to celebrate a hundred years of Delta Phi Epsilon, and in celebration for many more to come.
