Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a cornerstone of Rho Psi Eta's values. As a community of scholars, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of honesty, ethics, and accountability in all of our academic pursuits. We strive to uphold these values by always working diligently and with integrity in our studies, assignments, and exams.

Our Pillars

Community Service

Rho Psi Eta believes in the power of community service to make a positive impact on the world around us. As sisters, we are committed to giving back to our communities and helping those in need. Each year we offer free CPR certification as well as work with Operation Smile to raise money for children with cleft palates.


One of Rho Psi Eta’s foundational pillars is that of sisterhood. Over the years, we have been lucky to meet wonderful women who share our love for health + forge friendships. Each year, our sorority continues to grow in numbers, friendship, memories, and love.

Greetings from the President

My name is Preet Desai
President, 2024-2025 

On behalf of the sisters of Rho Psi Eta, welcome to our official website!


Rho Psi Eta was founded in 2007 as the only pre-health sorority on UC Santa Barbara’s campus. We strive to uphold our three pillars: community service, sisterhood, and academic integrity. We are a community of aspiring healthcare professionals who hope to establish an empowering and supportive environment for all of our sisters. 


My personal journey at Rho Psi Eta started when I was a second-year. The support I received from my sisters has shaped me into the person I am today, inspiring me to continuously grow. It is truly an honor to serve as President and represent a diverse group of individuals. I will always be grateful for the opportunities and experiences Rho Psi Eta has provided me, and I hope others can say the same. 


The sisters of Rho Psi Eta are incredibly involved and hardworking individuals, balancing their education, extracurriculars, and personal time. We take pride in the broad spectrum of interests our sisters have and their contributions to our society. Our esteemed alumni, ranging from physicians to lawyers to mothers, exemplify the diverse pathways our sisters choose to pursue. 


At Rho Psi Eta, we cultivate a welcoming environment for all students, regardless of major, level of experience, or personal identity. If you are interested in becoming a member or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or any of our sisters!
