Interested in Fraternity Life at Grand Valley? Read on to know why you should rush Delta Upsilon. Delta Upsilon International Fraternity is a social fraternity based on the principle of non-secrecy. Everything from our guidebook, The Cornerstone, to our ritual is open to the public to observe. The Grand Valley State Chapter was founded on April 23rd, 2010 as the fastest chartering chapter in Delta Upsilon history. In the six years since then, our young fraternity has grown to around 40 members, recruited progressively larger pledge classes each year, and acquired a house. Brotherhood is one of the most important qualities our fraternity emphasizes. Ask any member of DU how well they know their brothers, and they will tell you that they know each and every one on a deep level. They'll have your back, and you'll have theirs. Our brothers are very involved in campus life outside the fraternity. For example, some hold Student Senate positions. Others hold positions in various groups and clubs on campus. Some even have membership in non-IFC fraternities, such as business fraternities and music fraternities. Still others participate in GVSU athletics. There are quite a few wrestlers in DU. DU is made up of men from all kinds of different backgrounds. Not only do we have brothers from the states, but we have some from Europe, Asia, and Australia, and Russia as well. In addition, we have members that have served our country previous to college. Did you read anything that piqued your interest? Think that you want to join? Contact Vice President of Recruitment Rory Spence at (248) 930-6801 for more information on making the best decision of your college career.

Mission: Building Better Men "We are confident that the great objects of equality, fraternity, and morality may be attained without resorting to the veil of secrecy. We, in order to secure greater unity, permanency, and efficiency of effort, do agree to form ourselves into a Fraternity for the purpose of counteracting the evil tendency of secret associations in College, for maintaining and diffusing liberal principles, and for promoting intellectual, social, and moral improvement." - Preamble, 1834

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. One thing we're thankful for is our Vice President of Scholarship, Gabe Colston. Gabe is a freshman this year at Grand Valley which shows his passion and potential for the future. He rarely smiles but don't assume he is mad or upset, but at the same time he very well could be mad or upset. Just keep your grades up and you can stay on his good side. His hobbies include drinking 40 oz bottles of syrup, assorted cheeses, shuffle board, and clouds. His favorite memory of DU so far was when he was elected pledge class president and celebrated his inauguration with popping bottles of sparkling grape juice. We know you'll do an A++++ job Gabe.

Say hello to Delta Upsilon's Executive Vice President for the 2014-2015 term, Nick Bis. Nick Bis is from the small town of Ortonville where he worked on a farm 12 hours a day. His strong work ethic then helped land him a job at Carrabbas as a host and busser. He believes that every bussed table should be a "nice bus", and he couldn't be more right. His hobbies include DJing, going to concerts, and small animals like baby geese or gremlins. In the next year Nick plans on creating lasting change and structure on the executive board. He once said "DU means more to me than the entire Lord Of The Rings series and popsicles". Wow, that's true commitment. Next time you see Nick, tell him "Nice bus, Nick Bis".

Meet Adam Hukkala, the 2014-2015 President of DU. Often referred to as "Mr. Senator" or "Dadam", he has attributed his victory in the presidential race to his facial hair and fatherly instinct. Adam grew up in the streets of Kansas City which forced him to mature quickly. By age 7 he had a full chest of hair and a vision to be the next Prime Minister of Canada. He recently ran for Howell Michigan's school board and lost by a slim margin, but that didn't slow him down. As president, he wants to lead Delta Upsilon to greatness and start reaching out to the community more. You can find Adam eating pork chop sandwiches and watching GI Joe PSAs on the weekends. So swing on by the house and meet our great leader, Mr. President Adam Hukkala.
