May 7, 2018 - After five years away from campus, Delta Upsilon's Northwestern Chapter has officially returned. The Reinstallation Ceremony was held Sunday, May 6. The Northwestern Chapter was first installed Oct. 27, 1880, as the Fraternity's 25th chapter.
The Alice Millar Chapel on the Evanston, Illinois campus played host to the Reinstallation Ceremony and Rite II of Initiation, which were attended by alumni, parents, friends and university officials. The Ritual team consisted of Executive Director Justin Kirk, Boise State '00, as Master; DU Educational Foundation Director of Advancement Colin Finn, Iowa State '05, as Examiner; Leadership Consultant Tyler Vasquez-Dorn, Rochester '17, as Chief Marshal; and advisor Jim Kluga, Purdue '13, as Chaplain. Robert Lannin, Nebraska '81, Chairman of the International Fraternity Board of Directors gave the Charge address.
"Delta Upsilon is proud to celebrate the Reinstallation of the Northwestern Chapter," Kirk said. "The chapter has a long history with the Fraternity that is 138 years in the making. We look forward to seeing great things from the chapter in the years to come."
Expansion efforts for the return of the Northwestern Chapter begin in spring 2016. After two years as a colony, the Fraternity is excited to recharter the group as a chapter of Delta Upsilon once again.
Congratulations to the Northwestern Chapter!
