While Delta Psi does financially support various philanthropy’s on campus, the fraternity recognizes the unique benefits of performing community service. Not only is community service a way to thank the community, but it also creates opportunities for the brotherhood to bond together in order to reach a common goal – further strengthening friendships while bettering the community.
