In 2013 Delta Upsilon Celebrated our 100th year on campus as well as being officially re-installed as a Chapter at Iowa State. Delta Upsilon, an international men's fraternity founded in 1834 at Williams College, is committed to Building Better Men through our four founding principles of character, culture, justice and friendship. There are no secrets with Delta Upsilon. No secret rituals. No secret oaths. No hazing. We are proud of what DU stands for and proud to be the world's only international fraternity committed to sharing our ideals, symbols, and rituals openly. DU is a dry Chapter, meaning alcohol is prohibited in the Chapter House. The Chapter actively serves the community, raises money for philanthropy and participates in all major Iowa State Greek Community events. The Chapter has consistently been in the top half of campus fraternities academically with a 3.00 Chapter GPA or higher every semester from spring 2014 through today. We have also been recognized as a Sweepstakes Finalist (Top-7 Chapter in all of Delta Upsilon) more than 5 times. There are more than 1,000 living alumni associated with Iowa State DU.

Nickname DU
Philanthropy Global Service Initiative, the international philanthropy that also serves as the international service project.
