FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Delta Epsilon Mu?
Delta Epsilon Mu is a professional co-ed fraternity for those interested in pursuing a Health Profession.
What is pre-health and why is it different than pre-med?
Pre-health is more inclusive of all professions pertaining to human health. It can include, but is not limited to, Medicine, Dentistry, Psychology, Physical Therapy, Public Health, Veterinary Medicine, and more. Pre-med is simply restricted to just the medical fields.
What is the difference between a social and a professional fraternity?
A professional fraternity makes bonds between members on a level that social fraternities may not. The camaraderie between our brothers and sisters as they explore the aspects of their related professional fields builds whole new levels of support that you may not find elsewhere. We balance our preparation for our future fields academically along with social events and service activities to create well rounded members prepared for their futures. All of our events, socials, and programs build our members into better citizens and future healthcare providers.
