Alpha Delta Chapter History
In 2011, the dream to bring Delta Epsilon Psi to The College of New Jersey was made possible by eight young men. Driven by their desire for service, these men wanted to bring a voice to the South Asian community. This dream was realized in the form of Alpha Delta Chapter of Delta Epsilon Psi, the first South Asian Greek Organization on The College of New Jersey’s campus. Through their passion for service and social driven endeavors, in the very first semester of being recognized on campus, the brothers hosted the first Project Come Together service event outside of Founding Chapter.
Since then, Delta Epsilon Psi at TCNJ has grown and flourished to 41 determined brothers within five years. The brothers continue to uphold their vision of philanthropy through our signature events, such as Project Come Together, Drench a Delta, Delta Clinic, and many more events. Additionally, the brothers devote much of their time to volunteering at multiple organizations, such as the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Career and Community Studies Center of TCNJ, and Hedgepeth WIlliams Elementary School. In the coming years, Alpha Delta Chapter hopes to maintain the traditions, principles, and ideals that the brothers have adopted to create a chapter that is the model of perfection.

Delta Epsilon Psi National History
Delta Epsilon Psi National South Asian Fraternity, Inc. was founded on October 1, 1998 at the University of Texas at Austin. 18 men came together sensing the urgency of a unified South Asian voice at their university. They believed that there was a lack of South Asian presence not only in the Greek community, but also at their university and their local community.
With this in mind, they founded Delta Epsilon Psi on our three pillars: Brotherhood, Discipline and Commitment. The founders believed that by establishing this organization, they would be able to break away from traditional South Asian stereotypes and give back to the community through their service and social based endeavors. The founders of Delta Epsilon Psi aspired to change the image of a South Asian fraternity not only at their campus but also throughout the nation. The same ideals and principles, by which they started this organization, are carried out at every chapter and colony across the nation and will continue to make an astounding impact all over the nation.
“We, the brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi, vow to be a fraternity whose primary purpose is to instill brotherhood, discipline, and commitment within its members through various social and service driven endeavors.”
