Ever wondered if taking the leap and rushing a sorority during the time in college is the right choice? If so, join us in taking a deeper look into one of Kean Universities highly regarded sororities, Delta Phi Epsilon. The current chapter, Beta Theta, is full of young women who are extremely involved in the community, on and around campus.  

The mission of Delta Phi Epsilon is to develop women who are socially conscious and committed to act for the greater good. Once a part of this family, young women will have continuous development and achievement through individual attention and growth. 

Kayleigh Polidura, current sophomore and president of Delta Phi Epsilon said, “I rushed fall 2019 because I wanted to get more involved on campus and make new friends since I was a transfer student. Rushing was quite fun! We were in person at the time and the sorority had plenty of events to attend from bowling to a pajama informational.”

Sisterhood and service are the way these women give back to their community. They pride themselves on being talented, motivated, and caring women who encourage each other to be true to themselves.

Being the only international sorority on Kean’s campus, they are well known and have received many awards and recognition, some of the most notable being: 

  • Highest GPA of a Sorority Member (2019)

  • Highest Fundraising Sorority at the Kean Dance Marathon (2019/2020) 

  • Sorority with the Highest Overall GPA (2020) 

  • Highest Fundraising Organization at the Kean Dance Marathon (2020) 

  • Sorority with the Highest Number of Community Service Hours (Multiple Years)

Due to COVID, all of the sorority’s events are now held over Zoom but the sisters still make it fun by having themes and different activities to their virtual events. Unfortunately, with the end of the semester coming up, Delta Phi Epsilon does not have any more events planned. However, there are upcoming events for this summer and students can stay tuned to their Instagram @dphie_ku for that information. 

Polidura shared, “The best part of being in a sorority is the sisterhood. Being online has been hard on all of us but it is so nice to be able to phone a sister or even meet up with them. It’s so nice to have the support around us.”
