After more than two years of planning, the alumni chapter has recently launched its DU Chapter Legacy Campaign. This fund through the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation will provide undergraduate leadership experiences and scholarships. Between the Legacy Plan and kitchen rebuild project, the chapter is 80 percent of the way to its fundraising goal. The kitchen renovations are scheduled to finish July 2017. The chapter also held a gifting ceremony in April, where Alumnus Dr. Allan Warrack, Alberta ’61, presented the undergraduates with his DU flag. He received the flag with his Distinguished Delta Upsilon Award in 2005.
For the eighth year, the Nebraska Alumni Chapter presented undergraduate members with the Roy James Harvey – Four Founding Principles Scholarship. The awards are given to recognize brothers who have most successfully demonstrated the ability to carry out DU’s Principles. Harney was a 1917 graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law. This year’s scholarships went to Aaron Halvorsen, Nebraska ’19, and Noah Brittenham, Nebraska ’20.
New York City
On April 30, the March for Dimes NY hosted the annual walk, the March for Babies. This is the biggest fundraising event held and produced by the March of Dimes. For the first time, The New York City Alumni Club for Delta Upsilon had a walking team (along with close friends). The team raised more than $4,000 for the walk and helped give every baby a fighting chance.
San Diego State
The San Diego State Alumni Chapter is currently in the process of preparing a new house for the undergraduates at San Diego State University. The old chapter house was demolished in February, and construction of the new house is well underway. The alumni expect the new house to be complete by the fall semester. They are hosting monthly fundraising events, including wine tasting and golf, through the year to reach their goal of $500,000.
