Beta Delta Phi Launches Annual Scholarship Fund

Former sorority embraces chance to give back

Sisters from the former Sacred Heart sorority Beta Delta Phi have decided to become the first Greek organization at Sacred Heart to establish a formal, annual scholarship to help strengthen financial aid opportunities for students.

The sorority sisters gathered at SHU’s Great River Golf Club in Milford for a special “Ladies Night” event in June. They spent the evening catching up with friends, reminiscing and discussing plans for the future. Building on the sorority’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2015, they agreed to fund the scholarship, and numerous sisters already have made donations.

The women aim to set the scholarship criteria and make the first Beta Delta Phi Annual Scholarship Award during the 2016-17 school year.  Anyone who would like to make a donation may do so at or contact the Office for Alumni Engagement at 203-365-7671 or
