& Friends of Delta Phi Epsilon, The past few months have been filled with many Centennial Celebrations. I have thoroughly enjoyed attending events and seeing other sisters on social media celebrating as well. Each chapter I visited made me feel like I was one of their chapter sisters. I wish I could have attended more. One of the highlights for me was dedicating our bench at Washington Square Park outside NYU Law School, the place where our DIMES started it all. Despite the cold and snowstorm from the previous day, sisters from many different chapters attended the ceremony. We even had family members of some of our Founders attend! You can read about this momentous event on page six. The day truly exemplified our bond, as sisters who had never met greeted each other with excitement and open arms. We also had a record-setting DIMES for DPhiE campaign in March, which raised more than $200,000. Learn about the amazing way we honored our Centennial on page 13. Thank you to all who donated and to our Educational Foundation for running such a successful campaign. As we look ahead, now is a good time to remind every DPhiE you know about the promise we made at initiation and the oath we took to live Justice, Sisterhood and Love forever. There is no end to Sisterhood; rather, it is an evolving journey. I challenge you to celebrate our Centennial by reconnecting with each other. Be a part of our “Each One, Reach One” campaign. Pick one sister and reach out to her. Remind her that DPhiE is her family and help her find a way to reconnect with our sisterhood. Imagine how many women we could bring back to DPhiE if each one of us reading this TRIAD focused on finding at least one lost sister. Learn more about Each One, Reach One on page eight. Let’s use our Centennial year to not only reflect on where we came from, but where we are going. And let’s make sure we bring as many sisters as possible along for our continuing journey. Yours in True Sisterhood,

Alumnae brave the cold weather to celebrate our Centennial at The TODAY Show in New York City.

Corrections: From the Spring 2017 issue of the Triad. In the chapter updates, the Phi Iota Chapter at Edinboro University was listed as being inactive of 1973. The correct year is 1982. Additionally, Phi Eta Chapter at Northeastern University is listed as being established in 1989. The correct year is 1969. In our story “New Beginnings,” Delta Nu Chapter at Temple University charter history lists an inaccuracy. The chapter went inactive in 1984 and was re-chartered in 2009.

centennial

celebration By Andrea Alhadari, Director of Communications and Events

S

isters around the globe have been celebrating our Centennial in ways big and small to commemorate that moment in history when five brave women began a legacy that grows ever stronger 100 years later. After our Centennial edition of the TRIAD was released, the March celebrations began in earnest later that month. Our DIMES would have loved them all. At the Place Where it All Began NYC March 17, 2017 Even Winter Storm Stella, a category 3 nor’easter that dumped eight inches of snow two days before our Centennial celebration in New York City could not keep our sisterhood away. Traffic for St. Patrick’s Day be darned when more than 100 guests, including sisters, board members and even a few of the DIMES’ descendants attended our DPhiE bench dedication ceremony held at Washington Square Park, across from the original NYU Law School building (now the NYU Silver Center) where DPhiE was founded. St. Patrick’s Day is arguably one of the busiest tourist days in NYC. But sisters were also loud and proud for our own celebration in front of the NBC TODAY Show’s cameras bright and early that morning. They got on camera and they got on the cover of this edition of the TRIAD too.

Mayor� Sing Ou� Praise�

From NYC’s Mayor Bill de Blasio to fellow Mayor Susan Ornelas from Arcata, California, city officials from around the country heralded March 17 as DPhiE Day in their communities. We received nearly a dozen proclamations from mayors and city leaders throughout the country from towns and cities where our chapters and alumnae associations call home.

Founder� Familie� Join In Through an exhaustive search that took a few months, we located several descendants of our Founders. Many said they were thrilled to have been contacted by our IHQ team. Several attended our bench dedication ceremony and Ida Bienstock Landau’s granddaughter, Chela Landau was the guest of honor during the California Alumnae Association brunch celebration March 18. “It was so moving to be in a room full of wonderful women who knew of my grandmother. It was the closest thing to having her alive again. I felt her in the room, and I know how proud she would be to know that this sorority has carried on with such a positive spirit and such empowering women. And I know how much she would have loved that I was there. I had such a special bond with her. She was so very, very kind, compassionate and intelligent,” Chela Landau said.

deep in the heart of dphie Alumnae Engagemen� Keep� Sister��� �riving By Marni Kaner, Chi Chapter at University of Texas

F

ar from home, on the deck of a cruise ship out to sea, there I spotted a young woman adorning our DPhiE letters across her jacket. Tossing aside any misgivings about our age difference, I scurried across the deck to meet a fellow sister. Rheaven introduced herself as an active sister of the Gamma Sigma Chapter at Tarleton State University. During our cheery conversation, Rheaven told me she never met alumnae outside of her chapter. She was comforted to know there are alumnae out in the world eager to meet her and her fellow chapter sisters to help them whenever a need arises. We took some selfies and exchanged numbers. As a good alumna sister, I told her to call or text me if she or her chapter ever needed help. That chance meeting with Rheaven reminded me of the things I missed about sisterhood and how I yearned to help pass on all the gifts that had been given to me from DPhiE. I am fortunate to be a mom. You could even say I am “that mom.” From the time my children were little, I was involved in everything. From preschool parents’ to PTA president, Girl Scout leader and team mom, I attended every feast, program, ceremony and sporting event. So when my daughter Elizabeth went to college only 45 minutes away, I as-

sumed we would continue enjoying these special moments. But, as chance would have it, there was no Delta Phi Epsilon on campus at the University of North Texas. My daughter chose Alpha Delta Pi sorority instead. Elizabeth would come to know different “secrets.” While she tells me sisterhood stories that I do understand, our Greek bond only goes so far. I cannot volunteer. I am not a sister. I cannot be there to serve her sisters meals during recruitment or help them practice speaking to potential new members. I may not be able to do all of this with my daughter, but I can for someone else’s. That is why I re-engaged with DPhiE. I can be there for someone else’s daughter, a young woman far away from home, like Rheaven, who may need a supportive smile and shoulder on which to lean. It is support I even wish I had when I was president of Chi Chapter at the University of Texas in 1989. We struggled and could have benefited from engaged alumnae. Now, 27 years later, as part of IHQ’s Alumnae Engagement Committee, I am a part of shaping the future for many daughters. As a chapter representative I am helping a young sisterhood of women who need us. They need to know we are here for them to pass on great experiences and memories for future generations of DPhiE women. There are women from all types of campuses with different backgrounds with one thing in common. They are all our sisters. And while I am a proud mom of an ADPi with a car sticker to prove it, my sisterhood needs me. You do not have to have a daughter who is Greek (or a daughter at all). You may not have even met an active sister. But like you were once, or my daughter, or all the Rheavens of DPhiE now, our sisters need us. There are proud DPhiE moms out there that count on us to support their daughters. Join me in re-engaging with our wonderful sisterhood. Take a few moments to read the website, find an alumnae association in your area or create one. Join a few alumnae Facebook groups, give a donation, or find the chapter in your area and go meet the sisters who are now sharing the experiences you once shared.

“Eac� On�, Reac� On�” Initiative Su�on� All Sister� t� Come Home

B

ecause we live in a big country in an even bigger world serving an ever-growing sisterhood, Delta Phi Epsilon announces an initiative that is finding and re-engaging sisters all over the globe to inspire a new century of sisterhood experiences. The Alumnae Engagement Committee’s mission is to locate lost sisters, re-introduce them to today’s DPhiE and help them reconnect with the sisterhood in a way that befits their interests. Called the “Each One, Reach One” campaign, this large scale volunteer outreach initiative is summoning all sisters from active and dormant chapters alike. “Ultimately it’s about bringing our sisters back home. Because our sisterhood really is for life,“ said Emily Meister, Alpha Iota Chapter at the University of San Francisco and co-chair of the committee. The committee was established as part of the sorority’s commitment to promoting relationships for the members not for just four years but for life. There is also some self preservation to this Meister concedes, as the sorority always needs emerging leaders to keep the sisterhood healthy, vibrant and relevant. “The question is how can we answer the call to provide better service for our sisterhood,” she said. Early indications are the outreach is working. The sorority has updated more than 400 contacts, which means there are more than 400 alumnae sisters out there who have reconnected with DPhiE. The co-chair is loving her own re-engagement. “I came back because I could help the sorority. Also, there are some new friendships I would never have made if I didn’t go beyond my chapter,” she said. Fellow sister Kathy Piccari, Alpha Alpha Chapter at West Chester University agreed. “I’ve remained virtually connected with my sisters through the years, despite the gap in distance and time. But 18 years after

pledging and now reuniting with DPhiE through headquarters has reaffirmed that joining DPhiE was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, she said. Expanding connections is a big benefit to alumnae engagement, Meister added. There are new networking opportunities that can help a sister’s career. And many alumnae volunteers report they have been able to sharpen some of their professional and leadership skills as well. The alumnae sister experience is different, she added. The collegiate obligations are lifted. As such sisters bond in ways that more mature women often do, she added.

the love of �ister���

is for a lifetime

By Nancy Hart-Esposito, Assistant Executive Director- Housing

W

henever Meredith Kawar, Alpha Phi Chapter at Ramapo College went to her cancer treatments or a doctor visit you would often find a DPhiE sister with her. When she participated in Relay for Life events, sisters walked alongside her. And as Meredith made her way to the stage to accept the “Love Award” during last year’s International Leadership Forum, there was not a dry eye in the room. That is because not only was she battling stage four, triple negative breast cancer, but nearly everyone in that room knew Meredith loved us as much as we love her. Meredith Kawar succumbed to that battle April 10, 2017 at age 41. The legacy of how Meredith gave and received love will remain a shining testament to her and our entire sisterhood. Meredith began volunteering right after graduating from Ramapo College. She loved everything DPhiE. Our values and our principles ran deep. A 20-year volunteer who served as chapter operations specialist, team member for programming development, an advisor for the Gamma Lambda Chapter at Caldwell College, an Educational Foundation scholarship committee volunteer and others, Meredith epitomized our founding principle of Love. She showed it in her support of the sisters she knew and the sorority causes she championed. We showed it back by

enjoying her life with her and rallying to her side in times of need. Upon her passing, more than 50 undergraduate and alumnae sisters attended her services to pay homage to her legacy of love to our sisterhood. “Meredith was a ray of sunshine to everyone she touched,” said Stephanie Cockerl, Delta Rho Chapter at Cornell University. “Her love for DPhiE will forever be her legacy.” We often forget how fragile life is until something happens that touches us in a personal way. Meredith’s death shocked all who loved her. But love is not so fragile. When nurtured love is strong and everlasting, like sisterhood itself.

With a warm welcome from the Panhellenic and Greek communities alike, we knew our new chapter would be an excellent addition to URI’s already impressive line-up. The Alpha Upsilon Chapter at Johnson & Wales University, Gamma Xi Chapter at Rhode Island College, Connecticut Alumnae Association and New York City Alumnae Association were onsite to assist with the initiation ritual. “I joined DPhiE at Rhode Island College but ended up transferring to URI. While the change was exciting, it was difficult to leave my sorority behind. When it was announced that DPhiE would be colonizing on campus, I was ecstatic to be involved with DPhiE again. It was incredible to see how many women on this campus wanted to learn more about Delta Phi Epsilon over the course of recruitment. I am looking forward to see what is in store for this coming semester and the future of Zeta Theta!”

Our very busy year began with our chartering of the new Zeta Eta Chapter at California State University, Los Angeles. This was followed by several events throughout the state supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, several women’s marches throughout the state; several Centennial celebrations in Humboldt, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Diego. We have one more Centennial celebration the undergraduates of CSULA are scheduled to hold this fall.

epsilon upsilon recognized alumnae association

We held a Centennial celebration with the active chapter. For more than a decade, sisters of Epsilon Upsilon Chapter at Humboldt State University have built a strong relationship with the mayor of Arcata, California. Mayor Susan Ornelas not only created a proclamation for our event, she presented it in person that evening.

Women from all over Southern California came together to celebrate Centennial March 18, 2017. We were very fortunate to have Ida Landau’s granddaughter, Chela, join us for a luncheon celebration. She read a letter that Albert Einstein wrote to her grandmother and we spent a wonderful afternoon sharing memories and singing songs from our various chapters.
