Does your child want to join Delta Phi Lambda? We are thrilled to have them!

Benefits of Joining

Delta Phi Lambda is more than just a club. It is like a second family. Upon joining, sisters say that they feel loved, supported, and above all, safer at their respective universities. This is especially important as college can be a tough time of transition for our members where they are learning more about themselves, their own identities, and how they will grow to be the amazing individuals you know they can be.

Through membership in Delta Phi Lambda, they will learn how to properly budget money, study skills, event planning, marketing and branding, how to be a leader, public speaking, time management, and critical thinking skills. All of their experiences will be perfect for their resumes when they apply for jobs upon graduation!

Concerns?

Delta Phi Lambda is committed to providing a nurturing environment where all of this is possible. If you notice your child exhibiting any of these behaviors, they may be a victim of hazing. Please call 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293) or email our bod@deltaphilambda.org if you have any concerns or questions. Some signs to look out for:

  • Your child is unable to answer their phone or takes a long time to get back to you.
  • There are certain periods of the day or night where your child is unreachable.
  • Your child is going to meetings at odd hours.
  • Your child all of a sudden stops communication.
  • Your child is more tired than normal.
  • Your child’s grades are not as high as they normally are.
  • You notice changes in your child’s hygiene habits.
