Delta Sigma Chi was founded on February 14, 1962. Our colors are navy blue and white and our symbols are the white chrysanthemum, crown, ivy and dove. Our motto is Dianois Stephanos Chryseos, meaning The Crown of wisdom is golden. Our community service projects include the American Heart Walk and 24-hour dance-a-thon for the American Heart Association. Our social events include date parties, semi-formal in the fall, and formal in the spring. Go Greek!
The Euglossian Society was formed when the Hesperian Society was forced to split into two groups that would become the Euglossian and the Philalethean Societies in 1913. The name Euglossian stems from a Greek term meaning "fluency of tongue" and our colors, purple and white, stand for royalty and purity. The Euglossian flowers are the purple violet for modesty and the white rose for majesty. Our motto is "Astra Castra Numen Lumen," which means "The stars our camping ground, divinity our light." Our mascot is the skunk. Our slogan is "Modest, Pure, and Loving Quite," and we strive to live our lives accordingly. An important philosophy for all Euglossians is that we are "Eugnited but Eugnique." We celebrate each member's individuality, and at the same time rejoice in the common bond we share in the spirit of Euglossia.
As active members of the Heidelberg community, the Eugs participate in nearly all aspects of campus life: theater productions, various music ensembles, academic honoraries, WHEI radio/television, and athletic teams, to name a few. Our majors range from biology to education to psychology to music. We sponsor a blood drive each semester, as well as take part in other community service projects. We also hold social events, such as Spring Formal and Legs Dance.
The Eugs would like to strongly encourage all non-Greek students to get involved, ask questions, keep an open mind, and GO GREEK!
Kappa Psi Omega women's society was founded on January 23, 1968. We are proud to be the largest society on campus.
Our motto, "Sincerity our Truth, Individuality our Goal," is the foundation on which our sisterhood is built. Our colors of burgundy and white represent the qualities of courage and purity. We also proudly bear our symbols the ladybug, strawberry and trilogy, and our flower, which is the daisy.
The Kappas are represented in virtually every aspect of campus life, including academic honoraries, campus organizations, musical ensembles, theater and athletics. As a group we unite our talents to provide service to the campus and community. Some of which include donating to women's shelters,participating in a Walk for Diabetes, sending letters to Soldiers overseas, donating to the Make a Wish foundation, actively participating in Relay for Life and volunteering at the local Humane Society.

Founded in 1913 when the Hesperian Society split into two groups, the Philalethean Society and the Euglossian Society, the Philalethean Society is based upon strong tradition and holds the true meaning of sisterhood.
Proudly wearing green and gold, you will see the Phi's active in numerous activities around campus. We strive to achieve our motto, "Do Ye Beste."

We stress the importance of individuals working together towards a common goal, and our program requires individuals to put their heart into everything they do. The Phi's are proud of their pledging program because of the traditional values that it instills and the strong bonds that the affiliates begin to develop during those two weeks. The Phi's encourage everyone to keep an open mind and GO GREEK!
