Delta Upsilon was founded in 1834 as the world’s first non-secret and non-hazing social fraternity. Our mission is to develop the characters of young men to be productive, well-rounded, and valuable members of society - summarized by our mission statement of Building Better Men. We are guided by our four founding principles: the Advancement of Justice, the Promotion of Friendship, the Diffusion of Liberal Culture, and the Development of Character. The Carthage Chapter of Delta Upsilon takes pride in participating in the Chapter Excellence Plan found on the website of our international headquarters.
Sundays at 7 p.m. in the Niemann Media Theatre. In accordance with our non-secret heritage, Chapter meetings are open to the public.
What are some of your org's major events and activities?
Delta Upsilon (D.U.) takes pride in the commitment our members undertake during their time at Carthage. A D.U. in everything and every D.U. in something is a saying that we exemplify in our involvement at Carthage. The largest philanthropy we support is the Global Service Initiative, an effort to help build schools, homes, and communities in Negril, Jamaica. We also host a St. Baldrick’s event every spring to raise money for childhood cancer research. We participate in domestic violence prevention and hazing prevention events, as well as numerous brotherhood, professional development, and educational events throughout the year.
