Happy Founders DAy
Nov. 4, 2020 - Happy Founders Day! On this day in 1834, 30 men at Williams College met to form Delta Upsilon. With non-secrecy and the Principles of Friendship, Character, Culture and Justice as their guide, these men set out to create a group that would provide men with a forum for open discussion and personal development. 186 years later, Delta Upsilon continues to provide college men with a premiere fraternity experience that prepares them for life and the world.
Watch a special Founders Day Message from International Fraternity President Tom Durein, Oregon State '92.
For the fifth consecutive year, the DU Educational Foundation is celebrating the day with its Founders Day of Giving. This giving day is designed to bring in as many gifts for the Foundation's Annual Loyalty Fund as possible and build affinity for the Fraternity. Gifts made to the Foundation are used to fund scholarships, educational programs and other initiatives that allow Delta Upsilon to continue its mission of Building Better Men.
