Delta Tau Delta Fraternity
Iota Upsilon Chapter
Delta Tau Delta ("Delts") colonized in Winter 2011 at Grand Valley State and have already made an impact in the Greek community, Grand Valley Campus, and West Michigan. The Delts have consistently been within the top three fraternities on campus since their colonization in 2011 (last updated Winter 2017). The Delts have thrown several large scale events including the Lake Michigan beach event, the zombie walk, and the Pin Wheel Garden for Safe Harbor.
Delta Tau Delta has partnered with JDRF nationally and the chapter has already begun working closely with the offices in West Michigan 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.
