Building Better Men

Delta Upsilon Fraternity has a long tradition at Syracuse University. In fact, DU was the second fraternity at SU and we were founded in 1873 in the Hall of Languages just three years after the University began.

Below are some benefits of joining DU at Syracuse University:

  1. We are a non-hazing and non-secret fraternity. These are not just words to us. You will NOT be subjected to abuse here – our focus is on brotherhood events, intramural sports, formals, traditions, philanthropy, big/little brother events, chapter dinners, etc.
  2. You will develop lifelong friendships based on shared core values of justice, diversity, loyalty, and respect.
  3. Delta Upsilon’s tagline is ‘Building Better Men’. This isn’t just a slogan. Your experience at DU will enrich your college experience and positively impact your life.
  4. You become part of a team of 900 Syracuse DU alumni (including Coach Jim Boeheim). You can network with this successful group to find internships and jobs.
  5. You will gain endless leadership opportunities that you will use throughout your life.
  6. You will have access to award-winning leadership conferences, seminars, and global service initiatives.
  7. You will be eligible for numerous scholarships provided by our educational foundation.

But we aren’t here to sell you on our fraternity. We want men who believe in our core values and believe that lifelong friendships should be based on mutual respect and trust. If you want to be a part of a historic fraternity at SU, then Delta Upsilon may be your fraternity. We encourage you to visit the DU International website and express your interest.
