Delta Phi Beta is the nation's first South Asian co-ed fraternity. It's inception was a reaction against the growing schism forming within the South Asian community. Founded at UC Davis in 2003, Delta Phi Beta has been working to form connections within the South Asian community uniting all individuals, regardless of cultural or religious beliefs. Delta Phi Beta is upheld by its four pillars of philanthropy: cultural awareness, social enhancement, academic excellence, and community involvement.

Delta Phi Beta has thrown a number of successful parties in the past which include:

  • DPhi-ance - 2005
  • D'Phi-Nest - 2006
  • Dare To DPhi - 2007
  • Got DPhiB? - 2007
  • D'PHI-NATION - 2008
  • Just D'Phi It - coming in 2009

Delta Phi Beta has participated in various community service events. Some of them include:

  • Make-A-Wish
  • Ronald McDonald House Charity
  • Relay for Life
  • Adopt-A-Family
  • raising funds for earthquake relief in South Asia
  • raising funds for cyclone relief in Bangladesh
  • raising funds for Narika, a bay area based organization combating domestic violence against South Asian women

In June 2006, Delta Phi Beta successfully hosted the first South Asian Middle Eastern (SAME) graduation in UC Davis history. Each year, SAME graduation becomes bigger and better; it is a tradition we want to keep alive for the generations of students to come.
