Delta Upsilon at Virginia Tech

Build friendships. Build character. Join DU. 



Delta Upsilon is proud to be restarting our chapter at Virginia Tech in fall 2023! Our mission is to bring a premier fraternity experience to Virginia Tech—an experience that fosters strong friendships, character building, networking and personal skill development. As we like to say: College prepares you for a career. DU prepares you for life.

Delta Upsilon staff will be on campus starting in August 2023 to recruit Founding Fathers into the chapter and establish the group's operations. Continued recruitment efforts will take place all year.

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 and 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.

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.
