ABOUT DU

Delta Upsilon is the sixth oldest men's fraternity and first to be founded as non-secret. What does that mean? It means that DU proudly shares our mission, values and ritual with the world. We have rich history and deep traditions that we believe should be shared and celebrated, not kept hidden. When you join Delta Upsilon, you are able to share exactly what DU is all about.

Delta Upsilon was founded in 1834 at Williams College in Massachusetts. We first opened a chapter at the University of Washington in 1910.

Delta Upsilon is firmly rooted in our Four Founding Principles of The Promotion of Friendship, The Development of Character, The Advancement of Justice and The Diffusion of Liberal Culture. To learn more, visit our Mission and Vision page.

THE DU EXPERIENCE

Why Du?

Delta Upsilon is the world’s oldest non-secret, non-hazing fraternity. We believe that if we want our brothers to live our mission of Building Better Men and by our founding values and principles, why would we keep any of that a secret? In Delta Upsilon, you are able to tell the world exactly what your membership means, then prove it through your actions.
