Founded on November 4, 1834, at Williams College, Delta Upsilon is one of the oldest men’s college fraternities and the first to be founded as non-secret. Delta Upsilon was never intended to be “just another fraternity.”
“The circumstances of fraternity life gave me a wonderful opportunity for exchanging and sharpening viewpoints; for stimulating interest and curiosity in a variety of subjects. These are essential to true education.”
Lester B. Pearson, 14th PM of Canada, Toronto 1919
Since our introduction to the University of Toronto back in 1899, we have been successfully preparing men for adulthood and ensuring they leave school with the competitive advantage only Delta Upsilon can provide.
“I was while in college an active opponent of college secret societies. I believed firmly then, as now, that no sufficient reason has ever been given for breaking up the unity and friendship of college life, by maintaining secret societies, and that their influence is exceedingly unfavorable to the best interests of colleges.”
James A. Garfield, 20th President of the USA, Williams 1856
“So long as there are wrongs to be set right, and college students to be stimulated and prepared for higher and nobler duties of life, (Delta Upsilon) ought to have a permanent and vigorous existence.”
William J. Bross, Founding Father, Williams 1838
