Chapter History 

Delta Tau Delta is rich in history. Founded at Bethany College in 1858 in what is now West Virginia by men who were drawn together by common values and brotherly regard. They came to be known on the campus only by the Greek letters Delta Tau Delta. They founded an organization based on the principles of truth, courage, faith and power. These principles guided the Fraternity through its beginnings.

Delta Tau Delta has stood the test of time. It has survived two world wars, a Great Depression and a great recession, the boom of undergraduates brought on by the G.I. Bill, and the reduction of Fraternity membership following the Vietnam War.

The Fraternity has spread to nearly 200 campuses, with more than 130 active chapters and colonies of roughly 10,000 undergraduate students. More than 170,000 men have joined the brotherhood of Delta Tau Delta since its founding. 

The Nu Chapter, originally chartered at Lafayette College in 1874 but reorganized in 1878 and lapsed in 1888.  From 1900 to 1906 it was organized as Skull and Raven, a local fraternity on campus. The Chapter was reinstated in 1906 but was closed again in 1988. After a nearly 30 year absence, Delta Tau Delta returned to Lafayette College as a colony in 2015 and was recognized as a Chapter in 2016.  The original Chapter House was built in 1914 and is located between Marquis Hall and the Chi Phi fraternity.

The current Delt Chapter House is an off campus college owned residence located at 225 Reeder Street. The fraternity have never given up hope of returning to their original chapter house still located at the top of Sullivan Trail.

If you decide to join Delta Tau Delta, you can feel comfort in knowing that more than 150 years of history and tradition will be there to greet you.
