Joining a sorority or fraternity is a great way to get to know people with common interests, form a support structure for academics, and get involved with campus activities, leadership opportunities and community service.
1. Be yourself, have a good time and introduce yourself to members of the fraternity. When the Delta Upsilon fraternity has events, stop by and introduce yourself.
2. Sign up for Recruitment. This is the time when fraternities invite potential members to come look at their houses. Recruitment usually takes a few nights which usually have themes. Talk with some of the members at each one and see what they have to say about their house and the people who live in it. Ask what kinds of activities the house participates in. Do they do community service or have formals, social events and other activities? Are you interested in the activities they provide? Find out what it's like to live in the house.
3. The bidding process: Once you find that you want to join Delta Upsilon, talk with a member and let them know your intentions and that you would like to join. Delta Upsilon, must vote and the membership must approve giving each person a bid to join.
4. If you are selected to receive a bid, you will be notified by the school that one is available for you to sign. Stop by the IFC office, to sign your bid.
Thank you for your interest in Delta Upsilon International Fraternity!
As your son searches for a fraternity to call his own, I understand that you have questions about the organization that will shape his future. This letter is intended to serve as a brief introduction to Delta Upsilon and the many ways we achieve our mission of Building Better Men.
Delta Upsilon Fraternity was founded in 1834 upon the basis of non-secrecy, meaning we hold nothing secret: all of our rituals, initiations, and principles are open to the public.
