Wonder if sisterhood is for life? Well, see what Deepher Alumni have to say about how DPhiE has affected there lives during and after college!

Featured Alum

What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens?
I absolutely loved Greek Week and the chariot races. It was nice to see all of the houses having fun together as well as having pride in their house.

Do you feel that DPhiE has bettered you in any way throughout your years in college? If so, how?
I think that my experience with DPhiE in college taught me a lot about how to compromise both in a personal and a professional capacity. I learned how to work together with some of my best friends and women that I truly care about to accomplish our goals, and I also learned how to push aside my personal feelings and issues in order to complete tasks for the sake of the house.

What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens?
For me personally, my favorite memories were primarily centered around Castle Point King. While the sisters of DPhiE were always more than willing to show their pride in our house, during CPK that pride was just palpable. You didn't need to see a Deepher's letters to know who she was.

What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna?
I miss most in seeing my sisters regularly. Like most alumni, I moved away from NJ for work after graduation, and while I periodically come back to visit, I am usually lucky to see a handful of sisters on those rare occasions that I can return. I'm hoping to make it back for bid night or CPK in the future to see all the sisters again (young and old!)

Do you feel that DPhiE has bettered you in any way throughout your years in college? If so, how?
Yes, absolutely. I learned: how to deal with various personalities in good and bad situations, how to work with others I might not necessarily be in tune with on most days, and to be a leader & decision-maker. I made friends with girls older and younger than me that I probably would not have become friends with if I was not a sister. These same girls are now my closest friends.

What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens?
I loved GC Sports and miss it so much! It brought out the best and worst of DPHIE (haha). It was a different dynamic than just sitting around the house and some "chore" just to get a PEARL. When we all showed up, wearing our letters, cheering for one another..it was a great feeling of pride. I miss that more than anything else. With GC sports, you're with your sisters and you all share one common goal: work together, cheer together (and maybe even win!)

What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna?
Being with all of my friends/sisters on one campus. I miss knowing that they are there.. within walking distance.. you absolutely take it for granted. Sure, you can get together for lunch or dinner or drinks once you graduate.. but, it's not the same as lounging around in sweats at 2pm watching some stupid movie and hanging out with your friends..

Do you feel that DPhiE has bettered you in any way throughout your years in college? If so, how?
DPhiE has enabled me to open my mind and have more confidence in myself. DPhiE turned me into a leader. I learned how to make important decisions, feel comfortable with them, and have support for those decisions. Sisters were by my side every step of the way. Having constant support made me more confident in myself which has definitely carried over to post-college endeavors.

What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens?
Some of my favorite memories from DPhiE at Stevens were definitely those associated with living in the house. I enjoyed being submerged in DPhiE all the time and loved feeling like we were a family.

What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna?
I miss sisters stopping by my room every day to talk, get advice, give advice, or just hang out. There was always a guarantee that someone would be there for me and that I was never alone, and that is definitely something I miss the most. Granted, I still can call on any of the sisters at any time, it was just a lot more convenient.

Joanna Greek Guarda
Do you feel that DPhiE has bettered you in any way throughout your years in college? If so, how?
Yes! the friends i made at D-Phi-E are still my friends today. It was a great place to learn about leadership, organization skills and diplomacy.

What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens?
The stress of Rushing, the thrill of pledge nite, Work Weekends at the house, the retreats we used to take on Long Beach Island - oh there are so many!

What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna?
Being with the people i still call my dearest friends everyday. 20 years later we only get together a few times a year with our families. I never realized how lucky we were to have each other everyday to discuss stuff with. I am always more at ease with life after a great phone conversation with one of my sisters.

1. Do you feel that DPhiE has bettered you in any way throughout your years in college? If so, how?
D Phi E definitely bettered me through my time at Stevens. I wouldn't have necessarily been one of those kids that sat in their rooms all day, but I would never have gotten involved in anything as much as I did D Phi E. I also learned how to work with people that had completely different personalities than me; we all had the same end goals even though we didn't necessarily agree on everything in the process.

2. What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens? Always having someone familiar in my classes, screaming my lungs out singing every bid night, themed sisters meetings, and Castle Point King. Picking my big and getting my two awesome littles was really cool, and now I get to watch my family tree grow!

3. What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna? I still try to come back for as much stuff as I can so I don't miss D Phi E THAT much yet! :) What's coolest about being an alumna has to be the network of Deephers in the real world... there are so many of us at my company. Even though we may be working in different offices so we don't see each other that often, we always have someone to IM if we're having either a really great or terrible day!!!

D Phi E gave me some of the best memories of my colleges years. D Phi E helped me understand the importance of responsibility, team work, and most important of all, friendship. Some of my best friends now are Deephers, and I can't imagine that I would have meet so many great girls if I wasn't part of D Phi E. Being part of D Phi E also gave me a chance to challenge myself. I was president for one year, and I never would have dared to run for this position if I didn't have the support I had from the girls. Being a Deepher made me a stronger woman, no doubts about it.

2. What were some of your favorite memories from being a Deepher at Stevens? I loved playing Greek sports. I am absolutely HORRIBLE with any sports that requires more than just running in a straight line, but it was a blast being part of the team and being able to make a fool of myself. There isn't any specific memories that are better. It's the little things about being a part of a sisterhood that made the whole experience memorable.

3. What do you miss most being a DPhiE alumna? I miss the people the most. Although I wasn't in love with the idea of meetings every Monday night, I now miss having a standing date with my best friends.
