Delta Upsilon

Delta Upsilon was never intended to be “just another fraternity.” From the Fraternity’s very beginnings, it strived to be something different. In the 1830s, faculty and students at Williams had become concerned by the two fraternities on campus for many reasons, but particularly in their successful placement of members into high campus offices, regardless of their qualifications. Looking to change that, a group of men formed what would become Delta Upsilon. Their goal: create a new, non-secret society that would welcome “all good men and true.” Fraternity membership is one of the most valuable extra-curricular experiences available to college men. What makes Delta Upsilon different from the rest? While our mission and vision remain true to our founding purpose, we are not stuck in the past. Our aim is to provide a modern fraternity experience that creates men of character no matter the era. Delta Upsilon is the premier men’s fraternity committed to Building Better Men for a global society through service, leadership development and lifelong personal growth for our diverse membership. Put simply, Delta Upsilon builds good men who are difference makers. The experiences we offer are relevant and better prepare men for the world than the typical college experience. We are proud of what our Fraternity stands for, and we proudly share that with others.
