Hello and welcome to the Zeta Epsilon chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon! My name is Lorena Rodriguez and I have the incredible honour of being this year’s Chapter President. Founded over 100 years ago at NYU School of Law by five trailblazing women, Delta Phi Epsilon has grown to become an international organization with 109 chapters and over 67,000 initiated members worldwide.


At a time when women did not have the right to vote, our founders were pursuing law degrees and creating an organization based on the principles of Justice, Sisterhood, and Love. Delta Phi Epsilon was the first non-sectarian sorority to be founded at a professional school. Being non-sectarian means we accept women from any background into our sorority. We find strength in our diversity, and continue to uphold our founders’ vision by being an inclusive and trailblazing sorority.


Zeta Epsilon is a diverse and passionate chapter made up of over 100 members who live by our motto Esse Quam Videri which means “to be rather than to seem to be”. Whether it is raising thousands of dollars for our philanthropies, getting involved on campus, or attending a Ravens sports game, our sisters invest themselves in everything they do. Being surrounded by such incredible women has pushed me to be the best version of myself and has given me memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.


Since joining Zeta Epsilon in the winter of 2016 I have had the incredible opportunity to be part of  a supportive and empowering sisterhood. I have had the chance to meet women from all across North America as a part of this organization and have had opportunities to grow in all areas of my life. I am so thankful for Zeta Epsilon and the amazing women I have met throughout my time at Carleton.


As you explore our website you’ll be able to get a glimpse into our sisterhood, and all the wonderful things our chapter does! If you have any questions or just want to chat, contact us using our social media links!
