Dear Parents & Families,
First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to learn more about our prestigious fraternity. We understand the concerns that may be involved when your son has expressed interest into joining a fraternity, especially with the current stigmas associated with Greek Life. We would like to answer a few questions, to clear up some of the confusion and give you a better look into our fraternity.
The brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi pride themselves as being the organization with the highest GPA in several different universities. All chapters and colonies put academics before any fraternal activity and mandate study hours for all brothers and new members to achieve academic success. Active brothers and alumni use their networks to assist newer members with classes and materials. Here at the Alpha Alpha Chapter we require a minimum of 2.6 GPA, but are proud to say that our Chapter average GPA is above a 3.50.
Hazing is defined as any action, that is taken upon the participant which creates an uncomfortable environment, and can put the physical or mental state of the participant at risk. All chapters and colonies of Delta Epsilon Psi strictly prohibit any way, shape or form of hazing. New members will learn all policies our fraternity has against hazing along with alcohol/drug policies and safety policies through our occasional workshops. Members must also follow all of these related policies with the council and university as well.
To become a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi, all interests all required to go through a new member educational program (which is often referred to as pledging or intake). During this time, new members learn about the history of our fraternity, different cultures, and life long skills to succeed as leaders. The new member educational program forbids any hazing. Each and every New Member Educator is certified, checked, and approved by National Council as fit to hold this responsibility.
During the time of your son’s undergraduate career, being in a fraternity will help him with all academic materials, as well as landing internships and jobs. However, the networking doesn’t come to an end when he graduates, it just takes a new beginning as we have brothers in all different fields all over the country,
Our national philanthropy is The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Delta Epsilon Psi was inspired to begin this relationship with JDRF after the passing of our brother Vishal Bhagat who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. In 2011, Delta Epsilon Psi began an official partnership with JDRF. For the past years, Delta Epsilon Psi has donated over $42,000 a year to JDRF.
While Delta Epsilon Psi is a South Asian interest based fraternity, we open our doors to any culture and ethnicity. Our chapters and colonies of Delta Epsilon Psi show diversity from ethnicities all over the globe.
Like every Greek organization, there are membership dues to remain an active brother of Delta Epsilon Psi, however every chapter offers fundraising opportunities to cover any costs and dues.
