In the spring of 1999, a group of women came together in search of an organization that was established to make a difference in the lives of ALL WOMEN. Feeling the lack of unity among women of ALL races and cultures, they sought an organization that demonstrated academic excellence, friendship, and sisterhood. Vision in hand these STRONG, COURAGEOUS, and DETERMINED women found in Delta Phi Mu Sorority, Inc., that and more.
Although uncertain of what the future might hold, on July 31,1999, Susan Marie Czub, Kenisha Nicole Lindsay, Marina Cecilia Rentas, Twyla Aneesha Turner, and Linda Michelle Vela set out to bring Delta Phi Mu at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. On December 5,1999 their dream was finally realized when the hand of sisterhood was extended to the women at Southern Illinois University; the first school to begin the National Expansion of Delta Phi Mu Sorority Inc.
In doing so, these newly accepted women vowed to continue the legacy of Delta Phi Mu. They made a promise to bring about change to Southern Illinois University by Promoting academice excellence, community service, and the unification of all women. They promised to support, guide, and assist the Hispanic community and all others to make a difference.
In just a few short months the dedication of these women was recognized as Delta Phi Mu became a Registered Student Organization at SIUC on March 22, 2000. By April 15, 2000 M.I.S.T.I.C.A.S., their first school was initiated into sisterhood. After much work and dedication the sisters at SIUC were officially chartered on Feburary 16, 2001, and incorporated on Feburary 24, 2001. They will forever be known as the Beautiful Beta Chapter.
As Delta Phi Mu Sorority Inc. continues to grow at SIUC they will continue to excel academically, provide phillanthropic service, and bring multiculturalism into their familia;
"Different Worlds, One Sisterhood!"
From our phenomenal origination by M.I.R.A.C.L.E.S.,
To the inexplicable awe of M.I.S.T.IC.A.S.,
As well as the unique diversification of the M.E.S.T.I.Z.A.S.,
To the renewing elegance of G.E.N.E.S.I.S.,
And the prominent distinction within E.M.I.N.E.N.C.E.,
In the perpetual honor of La V.E.R.D.A.D.,
As well as the Divine magnificance of T.R.I.N.I.T.Y.,
And our Exalted love from C.O.R.A.Z.O.N.,
We are the "DISTINGUISHED LADIES" of DELTA PHI MU SORORITY, INC. at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale... Beatutiful Beta Chapter!
