DePauw is happy to house 3 multicultural Greek organizations on campus, each with unique values and membership experience. These houses offer an inclusive living and learning environment that embraces cultural exchange and connection. 

Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Inc. 

Founding: Five women founded MSU at Rutgers University-New Brunswick on November 21, 1981, after the increasing diversity of women pursuing degrees. As the first multicultural sorority in the nation, the “founding mothers” laid the groundwork for a supportive and diverse sisterhood. Today, Mu Sigma Epsilon embraces over 1,200 women from over 120 cultural backgrounds across the states. The Wujimu chapter was founded at DePauw on April 7, 2017, and currently serves 21 sisters from over 18 different ethnicities. In April, the chapter will celebrate its 7th anniversary!

Quick Facts: Mu Sigma Upsilon, whose members are known as the “Sophisticated Ladies of MSU,”  prides itself on being the first multicultural sorority in the nation. Their motto is “Mujeres Siempre Unidas,” meaning “Women Always United.” Academic excellence, unity among all women, and service are their goals. They proudly sport baby blue and white, and their mascot, the Amazon warrior, is strong, fierce, and independent. Each chapter’s name is unique and is chosen by the founders. 

Recruitment Process: Information about the recruitment process, which is unique to Mu Sigma Upsilon, is offered during MSU’s “Ladies’ Night Informationals,” which are held throughout the semester. Interested individuals are also encouraged to reach out to current members on campus for further details. 

Statement from DPU Chapter President, Katherine Field ‘25: “We recognize that diversity is not limited to race, and we are proud to say we have achieved a sisterhood that is quite diverse to not only race, but also religious heritage, geographic origin, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, nationality, political ideology, and even choice of major and career. Students gain many things from experiencing our membership process. They will get an in-depth look into our sisterhood and business operations, develop professional skills such as leadership, get the chance to network, continue to foster academic excellence, and more.”

Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. 

Founding: Omega Phi Beta was founded on March 15, 1989, at the State University of New York by 17 diverse women. The sorority is Latina-oriented, but not Latina-based, emphasizing multiculturalism and dedication to inclusivity. The sorority has since expanded across the nation, and is a proud member of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations. DePauw’s chapter was founded on April 22, 2006, and since then has hosted many events including their Domestic Violence Awareness Banquet, Cafe Soleil, Take Back the Night, EmpowHERment Concert, and Baking with the Betas. The chapter and its members have won awards like Chapter of the Year, Undergraduate of the Year, and Best Philanthropic Endeavors. 

Quick Facts: The Psi Chapter of Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. sports the colors black, forest green, and radiant gold. Their symbols are the sunflower and hummingbird, and their goals and ideals are sisterhood, diversity, leadership, service, and academic excellence. Its motto is “Sirviendo y Educando a Traves de Nuestra Diversidad,” meaning “Serving and Educating Through Our Diversity.” Members are proud of the organization’s philanthropy, which raises awareness of violence against women. 

Recruitment Process: OPB Psi does not participate in the formal recruitment process. Instead, they host monthly informationals and events for those who are interested in their organization. It is also encouraged to reach out to current members on campus for further details or email them at

Statement from DPU Chapter President, Hillary Diaz Mosquea ‘24: “As a multicultural organization, we make it one of our goals to use all of our different experiences, values, and cultures to educate people about different issues impacting different communities worldwide. We are an organization that also respects and acknowledges gender-fluidity, thus, instead of solely using the phrase “Sister” we also use the term “Sib”. Sisters/Sibs of OPB tend to develop in terms of their professional, advocacy, leadership, and communication skills. We get the opportunity to also network with Sisters/Sibs across the nation who are always willing to provide guidance and support.”

Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, Inc. 

Founding: After protests at Rutgers University due to disappointment regarding Latino students’ rights, a group of students began a Latino social fellowship, which was then officially established at Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, Inc. on April 5, 1979. DePauw’s Elegua Chapter was chartered on November 10, 2012, by 4 men. Since then, the chapter is proud to be known for educating the campus on HIV/AIDS research and awareness, providing a safe space for marginalized communities, and educating others on cultural identity. 

Quick Facts: Originally founded as “Social Fellowship,” the chapter’s colors are baby blue and white. Their motto is “Latinos Siempre Unidos” or “Latinos Always United,” and their symbol is the Taino Native. Members are often called Upsilons. LSU’s goals are academic excellence, cultural awareness and diversity, being role models to the community, and brotherhood. 

Recruitment Process: The orientation process is different for each individual. Those who are interested are encouraged to reach out to current members, email the chapter at, or attend their interest sessions throughout the fall and spring semesters. 

Statement from DPU Chapter President, Aaron Trinidad ‘24: “We are open to all people

regardless of their background and identity. We celebrate diversity and intersectionality. Our mission states that the brothers of Lambda Sigma Upsilon strongly believe that many individual and collective successes can be achieved through the efforts of a culturally diverse brotherhood of college and university men who, through close association with each other, maintain honesty, commitment, respect, and trust.”
