The Fraternity of Delta Omega Epsilon (ΔΩΕ; official name Delta Omega Epsilon Incorporated) was founded on April 15, 1985 at the campus of The College of Staten Island.[1] Delta Omega Epsilon was the first fraternity to be chartered at the school.[2] They were a co-ed Greek Organization until it was believed a sister sorority should be broken off called Sigma Omega Epsilon. Delta Omega Epsilon was established to form a brotherhood, something that reaches beyond that of a friendship. On Feb 10th, 2011 Delta Omega Epsilon officially became incorporated.

Symbols[edit]

The official symbol of the fraternity is the Phoenix symbolizing rebirth. The colors of the fraternity are black and silver.[3]

Goals[edit]

  • To encourage and assist the academic progress of fraternity brothers.
  • To provide free tutorial and counseling to fraternity brothers.
  • To give a sense of brotherhood and while attending School.
  • To provide students with an opportunity for a business like experience in a fraternity corporation.

Their motto's include:

  • "A brotherhood, something that reaches beyond that of a friendship"
  • Would you rather be in a national fraternity with 50,000 members? Where you only know your chapter or would you rather be in a Fraternity where you know everyone from 1985–Present?
