Building Better Men

Delta Upsilon, an international men’s fraternity founded in 1834, is committed to Building Better Men through our four founding principles: Promotion of Friendship, development of Character, diffusion of Liberal Culture, & advancement of Justice, that challenge our brothers to expect nothing less than excellence from themselves and others.


Delta Upsilon was founded in 1834 at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Delta Upsilon is the 6th oldest international college, Greek-letter social fraternity and is the first non-secret fraternity founded. There are no secrets with Delta Upsilon. No secret rituals. No secret oaths. No hazing.

Delta Upsilon is proud to be the world’s only international fraternity committed to sharing our ideals, symbols, and rituals openly.
