The Five S’s


Scholarship, Self, Service, Social, and Sisterhood

Delta Phi Epsilon utilizes the PEARL (Personal Enrichment Activities for Responsible Living) program and ensures that our sisters strive to engage in activities relating to the 5 S’s – Scholarship, Self, Service, Social, and Sisterhood. This program allows sisters to earn PEARLs throughout each academic year and grow as a young woman and a sorority sister.


 Delta Phi Epsilon encourages our sisters to excel in their studies and focus on their passions. The Scholarship PEARLs help sisters develop time management skills and study habits throughout college to succeed in school and in the workplace.


College is a place for new adventures and challenges, and the Delta Phi Epsilon sisterhood helps to foster growth and development among young women. Our motto Esse Quam Videri encompasses this idea in its meaning “to be rather than to seem to be”. Self PEARLs support our sisters by promoting physical and mental well-being and a healthy balance between school and personal life.


Delta Phi Epsilon sisters make an impact in their communities through service and philanthropy. Community service and giving is dear to our hearts. We raise funds annually for the three Delta Phi Epsilon philanthropies: The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders), and the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. We also proudly participate in the IU Dance Marathon for Riley hospital. Service PEARLs are essential for fostering caring and contributing sisters.


Delta Phi Epsilon sisters can be found all over campus! Delta Phi recognizes the importance of essential social and communication skills in the workplace and in life. Social PEARLs can be earned by interacting with other Greek and non-Greek organizations as well as exploring new experiences to broaden perspective.


 An essential part of a sorority, sisterhood activities build a strong chapter and family environment. Our sisters must be well-educated about the history and values of Delta Phi Epsilon while always supporting each other and our sisterhood as a whole. Sisterhood PEARLs create memorable experiences and help us grow as a sorority.
