SororitiesEpsilon Delta Mu (EDM's)
The sorority is based on the Greek philosophy of eudaimonia-the idea that a good life is based on friendship, happiness, knowledge, and virtue. Through these four ideas, we plan to enrich ourselves, our sisters, and the community as a whole. Our sisterhood places a strong emphasis on the ideals of a service-oriented community through volunteer work and philanthropy. We welcome women of different backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs.
