Delta Tau Delta ("Delts") is Grand Valley's newest fraternity. Delta Tau Delta colonized in Winter 2011 and have already made an impact in the Greek community, Grand Valley Campus, and West Michigan. In the Delts first semester the colony has had the highest Greek GPA, highest new member GPA, and the most community service hours. The Delts have thrown several large scale events including the annual Lake Michigan beach event, the annual zombie walk, and the annual Pin Wheel Garden for Safe Harbor.
Currently the Delts have partnered with JDRF and the Colony has already begun working closely with them for philanthropy and community service to benefit Type 1 diabetes research. The Delts partake in Diabetes awareness month in November by raising awareness by wearing blue on Fridays and donating their money and time.
The Delts have recently received their charter in April 2013 and are continuing to grow and make great strides in the Greek community.
