Sororities at Penn, 1890-1990

Delta Delta Delta (1904)

Delta Delta Delta was founded on Thanksgiving Eve in 1888 at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts. Its colors are gold, silver, and blue, and its flower is a pansy. The Delta Delta Delta crest, shown at left, features a silver trident in the first and fourth quadrants of a quartered shield and a green pine tree in the second and third quadrants. The sorority’s motto, “Let us steadfastly love one another,” is inscribed in Greek on a scroll below the shield.

The Psi chapter of Delta Delta Delta was founded at Penn in 1904.
