Delta Upsilon was founded on November 4, 1834, at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Our founders created a fraternity unlike any other; a fraternity with a non-hazing and non-secret tradition. This allows for friends, family, and others to read our rituals, mottos, cornerstone and attend our initiation. Delta Upsilon was founded on four principles: Advancement of Justice, Promotion of Friendship, Diffusion of Liberal Culture, and Development of Character. Through these principles and our learning process, Delta Upsilon is how we Build Better Men.
The 151st Chapter of Delta Upsilon was founded on April 20, 2007. The North Florida Chapter was started by 13 original founding fathers who believed in the principles of the fraternity and knew it was something the University could prosper from. To this day we carry on those same principles with 57 men strong, creating a better environment for the gentlemen and the community.
