Local History


On February 8, 2009, five dedicated young men from the University of Florida came together with a vision of creating a brotherhood that would unite young men from all walks of life, serve the community, and give the South Asian population a voice that was missing in their community. It was their determination to bring the ideals, principles, and traditions of Delta Epsilon Psi to their campus. On that day, they created

the interest group ONE10. Over time, ONE10 began to pave the way toward the establishment of Delta Epsilon Psi, overcoming many obstacles and adversities. The men never lost sight of their vision and motivated themselves to face any barrier standing in their way. On December 2010, 22 months later, the 11 members of ONE10 were invited by the Multicultural Greek Council to establish Delta Epsilon Psi National South Asian Fraternity, Inc. at the University of Florida, becoming chartered as Rho Colony, now Rho Chapter as of August 9th, 2014.

Since the establishment of Delta Epsilon Psi, the men of Rho Chapter have continued to use the Founding Fathers' vision as their stepping stones to build a brotherhood of leaders. With the principles of Brotherhood, Discipline, and Commitment, the brothers of Rho Chapter have worked with determination and passion to create a fraternal organization that not only strives for growth in itself, but the personal

growth of each brother and the community that they are a part of. To this end we have hosted several signature service events such as Conquer the Court, an annual charity basketball tournament co-hosted with the Phi Chapter of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. that raises over $1000 every year, Drench-A-Delta, restaurant fundraisers, etc. In addition we host prominent social events every semester, such as Overtime, an after party for Conquer the Court, Blue Era, an annual founders’ day party, etc. To this day, the Rho Chapter upholds the ideals, principles, and traditions of our founders and excels as a prominent organization here at the University of Florida.
