The Virginia Chapter of Delta Upsilon has been thriving as of lately and membership has expanded considerably.
Our members actively embrace all parts of University life. We take service and philanthropy very seriously, with brothers actively involved with Madison House and other service groups, both in volunteer and management roles. For the last several years have hosted Delta’s House of Blues at the end of March, a concert which benefits the Wounded Warrior Project. This year we also teamed up with Madison House’s “Holiday Sharing” for our first annual DU Holidays, where we were able to raise money for underprivileged families in the Charlottesville area.
The brothers of Delta Upsilon also put an emphasis on academics. Our active members boast an average GPA above both the all-men’s and IFC’s averages. Our men study many different subjects in the various schools at UVA, including Architecture, Engineering, and Commerce.
Many DU brothers are also members of other clubs. These organizations cover a wide variety of interests, ranging from salsa and ballroom dancing to organizations like Chi Alpha or Honor. We encourage brothers to find something they enjoy, and get involved with it. More often than not, brothers join clubs in groups. Indicative of DU men’s excellence, many brothers hold officer positions in these organizations.
