Delta Phi Delta – ΔΦΔ – Delphis
Delta Phi Delta has an exceptionally interesting history in the college. The first known record of them is from the Royal Purple in 1934. The Delphis were formed when they broke off from Kappa Delta Chi. They disbanded in 1964 only to return in 1986 and celebrated their twentieth anniversary in 2006.
Delphis participate in quite a few service projects including Relay For Life (a cancer fundraising event), Sleep-Out for the Homeless, Clothe-a-Child, the Angel Tree project, and Crop the Walk. Actives also frequently volunteer for Service Saturdays and at the Cedar Valley Humane Society.
The Delphi mission is: “To build self-confidence, to nurture creative thinking, and to promote leadership through respect, service and unique governing opportunities.” Each of the families in the Delphis is named for one of the muses, from their motto, “To be born aloft amongst the muses,” demonstrating a respect for creativity and self-expression.
