About

Here at the University of Alberta, Delta Upsilon has a long and storied tradition of excellence.  Founded in 1935, our chapter has remained solid and visible on campus. Since our founding, we have helped train and develop great leaders in the community, province and country. From business titans such as Eldon Foote and Francis Winspear, to sporting heroes Clare Drake and Randy Gregg, to politicians Allan Warrack and Peter Lougheed, we take pride in the leaders we create.

In more recent years, our success has continued. We have been named the top Canadian Delta Upsilon chapter for the past four years, and consistently compete for some of the top overall chapter awards. This is no small feat for a group of thirty men, competing with American chapters that number in the hundreds. We promote academic success, philanthropy, and active social lives.

As the only non-secret fraternity at the University of Alberta, everything we do is open and transparent to the public. Delta Upsilon refuses to be secretive, and only recognizes one type of superiority in our men- merit. Our meetings are open, our activities non-secret, and even our entire ritual of initiation is available online. In aiming to build the finest fraternity experience, we see no sense in closing ourselves off from the community. Parents, family and friends are always welcome to stop by the chapter house for a tour, and are always invited to our ceremonies.
