DU - Iowa State Chapter

Ames, Iowa

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.  

We now stand as the oldest and largest non-secret fraternity, and have grown into an organization that focuses on providing our men with a unique college experience, one grounded in our Four Founding Principles of the Promotion of Friendship, Development of Character, Diffusion of Liberal Culture and the Advancement of Justice. We accomplish this through a variety of educational programming opportunities, including our Leadership Institute, held annually in a different city across the country; the Presidents Academy held every January in Indianapolis; the Global Service Initiative, which sends a group of our undergraduate men to spend a week completing service projects; and staff- and volunteer-run Regional Leadership Academy. 

There are 80,000 DU alumni spread across the country, in thousands of career fields. This alumni network will provides numerous opportunities to become career-ready and well connected throughout our organization.
