Delta Xi Phi D-Xirable/D-Xired Diamonds! D-Xire to be Different!

D-Xire to be Different!


So, I think it's time to explain why I called my blog "D-Xired Diamond: One Precious Stone!"
I didn't call it this to be conceded. I called my blog this in honor of my sorority.
I LOVE my sorority - Delta Xi Phi (DXP) Multicultural Sorority and what it stands for! :)
We call each other D-Xirable (Diamonds) but I decided to use D-Xired instead because D-Xirable was taken on Twitter.
My Twitter account is @DXiredDiamond by the way! :)
So, it's time to highlight my sorority!

Delta Xi Phi (DXP) Multicultural Sorority:
It was founded April 20th, 1994 on the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign campus, by fifteen young women. These women recognized a need for an organization that appreciated the different cultures present on their college campuses. Multicultural awareness, as well as community service, the empowerment of women in higher education, friendship and sisterhood were also important aspects of DELTA XI PHI.

Motto:
"What's possible has been done, what's impossible must be done." - Walt Disney

Quote:
"The Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Delta Xi Phi's 5 Pillars:
Delta Xi Phi sisters direct their energies to supporting the following Five Pillars:

Advancement of Women Through Higher Education:
All of our active sisters attend weekly study hours to concentrate on why they are at college - to earn a degree! We award sisters with high G.P.A's as well as sisters who improve their gpa's.

Increasing Multicultural Awareness:
We celebrate the diverse cultures that surround us through workshops, potluck dinners, international films, talent shows and other events. We also attend as many other cultural events as possible on campus & in the community to increase our knowledge and appreciation for diversity. 

Community Service:
All active and associate members participate in individual and group community service. It is through service that we strengthen our bonds with each other and help improve the areas that we live in.

Sisterhood:
Our unique bond of sisterhood starts in the associate member period and continues for life. Sisters at our chapters grow closer through celebrations, going to events and just plain hanging out together.

Friendship:
Just as we extend friendship to each other, we extend it to our campus & communities. We show support by co-hosting and participating in events with Greek lettered organizations and other student & community groups.

Delta Xi Phi's Symbols:
 The following Symbols embody Delta Xi Phi's strength and tenacity:

Flower:
Yellow Rose of Texas


Stone:
White Diamond


Mascot:
White Bengal Tiger

Colors:
Navy Blue and Maroon


Greek Letters:

Delta Xi Phi's National Philanthropy:

American Cancer Society: 
There are so many types of cancer out there that affect the people that we love, and we felt that through our diverse skills and abilities we could help raise money to find the cure! Each of our chapters raises awareness and money through programs at their local ACS office, like Daffodil Days and Relay for Life.

Why I LOVE and joined my sorority:
I LOVE and joined my sorority for so many reasons but the main reason that I joined it was because it promotes MULTICULTURAL AWARENESS! I am multicultural (Native American, Louisiana Creole, and African American/Black), so I believe that DXP was a perfect fit for me. What better than to join a sorority that promotes and brings awareness to diversity and different cultures? The other reason that I joined is because DXP ladies "D-Xire to be Different!" I don't want to blend in, I want to stand out and I don't have any problems with that. I embrace being different, just like I embrace being multicultural! :) We are Diamonds in the Rough polished to be the shiniest in the world.
