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. Sources suggest that they were either formed from two merged groups or broke off from Alpha Sigma Pi. 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 the Especially for You Race (breast cancer cure fundraiser), the Cedar Valley Humane Society, Movin’ for McAuley Walk, and the Angel Tree project.
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.
