DU to expand at Seton Hall
Unable to find requested asset
Delta Upsilon International Fraternity is honored to announce it has been selected to expand at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey. Expansion efforts will begin in spring 2018.
“Delta Upsilon is excited to partner with Seton Hall and work toward our shared goals,” said Delta Upsilon Executive Director Justin Kirk. “We believe that our Founding Principles align with Seton Hall’s mission and values. Like the university, we emphasize global service and developing our members into well-rounded leaders who are prepared to succeed in an ever-growing global society.”
The private university has more than 5,800 undergraduate students and 4,500 graduate students.
Delta Upsilon Leadership Consultants will spend the rest of the fall 2017 semester preparing for the expansion and learning about the Seton Hall campus culture. In January, they will arrive on campus and begin recruiting shortly thereafter. Kirk and other IHQ staff were on campus in October 2017 to meet with Seton Hall administration, as well as to share a presentation about DU with the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and other students.
“Delta Upsilon is going to be a great fit for our campus by giving our current and future student body another choice in joining our very diverse collection of fraternity life,” said Anthony Marra, Seton Hall’s IFC president, to The Setonian. “Delta Upsilon is a very unique fraternity that has much to offer Seton Hall University’s Greek system by bringing proven service programs to an already deeply service rooted school.”
In addition to on the ground recruitment efforts, Fraternity staff rely on recommendations from members when starting any new chapter. Those who know unaffiliated men attending Seton Hall who they would like to recommend for membership may contact the Leadership Consultants at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Strong alumni advisory support is also crucial to the success of any new colony. Those interested in serving as an advisor or mentor for a colony at Seton Hall can contact Expansion and Development Coordinator Hayden Rahn at email@example.com.
