Delta Upsilon Named Fraternity Sweepstakes Trophy Finalist

September 5, 2017

The Bradley University chapter of Delta Upsilon International Fraternity was named one of the seven finalists for its Sweepstakes Trophy, the highest honor bestowed upon a Delta Upsilon undergraduate chapter. The award was presented at Delta Upsilon’s annual Leadership Institute.  The Delta Upsilon Sweepstakes Trophy has been awarded annually since 1953 to acknowledge chapters whose achievements surpass all expectations.

“The chapter should be proud of its continued success,” said Justin Kirk, Delta Upsilon Executive Director. “For the second consecutive year, the chapter has been one of our Sweepstakes finalist, proving itself to be one of the best representations of Delta Upsilon.”

During the 2016-2017 academic year, the Bradley University chapter recruited 48 associate members, nearly half its chapter size. Philanthropic work included raising $5,500 for the Global Service Initiative, working with the local Boys and Girls Club and working with the Neighborhood House, a local organization that helps those living in poverty.

Established in 1834, Delta Upsilon is an international men’s college fraternity with 75 chapters and colonies across the United States and Canada. The Fraternity, founded at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, is the oldest, non-secret, Greek-letter society. More than 132,000 men have joined the Delta Upsilon Fraternity since its founding more than 182 years ago.
