Philadelphia, PA- Delta Phi Epsilon, a non-sectarian social sorority founded in 1917 and today one of the fastest-growing organizations of its type in the nation, will celebrate the Centennial Anniversary of their Alpha Chapter’s chartering on Friday, March 17th.

In New York City, a bench dedication will be held in Washington Square Park (5 Ave, Waverly Pl., W. 4 St. and Macdougal St.) at 11 am. The location overlooks the original law school building where the sorority was founded. The guest of honor will be International President Stacy Segal.
Segal shares, “Our Founders had a vision for being a non-sectarian organization and our sisterhood continues to build on this vision and fully embodies our founding principles of Justice, Sisterhood and Love. As International President, I am proud of the organization that we have built and it is my honor to dedicate this bench where we were founded and began our history.”
The second event will be hosted at the International Headquarters’ office space, located in downtown Philadelphia (251 S Camac Street), during regular business hours.
