Delta Phi Omega Sorority, Inc. was nationally established on December 6, 1998 at the University of Houston by sixteen South Asian women who recognized the need for an organization to promote the advancement of South Asian women. They came together with the common goal of uniting women among the South Asian community. The Founders created the backbone of this sorority on the basis of the five pillars of Sisterhood, Respect, Loyalty, Honesty, and Friendship. They envisioned an organization that would highlight the diverse South Asian culture through participation in community and social service projects.
Through determination and perseverance, this vision evolved into a reality and as a result, Delta Phi Omega has become a highly sought after organization for South Asian women across the United States. With each passing year, Delta Phi Omega continues to grow and make its presence known not only within their respective universities but also within the community and today is known as the nation's largest, strongest, & fastest growing sorority of its kind.
