Delta U joins FIPG

Risk management policy adopted ate in 1987,27 men's fraternities created the Fraternity InsurancePurchasingGroup(FIPG). These groups, finding it increasingly difficult to obtain adequa te liabili tyinsurance coverage, banded together to develop a comprehensive risk management policy for adoption and enforcement by all member fraternities. These fraternities agreed to hold each other accountable for violations of the policy and to report violations of any other FIPG fraternity. FIPG became fully functional in the fall of 1988 when member groups were able to collectively secure liability insurance coverage. At that time, an education and enforcement policy began. Since its inception several additional men's and women's fraternities have joined the group. In 1989, Delta Upsilon's 155th Convention instructed the Fraternity's Board of DirecI::::::::::::::::~!:~¡..:~t"~~: tors to study "options for a comprehensive risk management and chapter insurance program for Delta Upsilon." After careful study of FIPG policies and procedures, Delta Upsilon's Board voted unanimouslyinearly November 1990 to become a member of the Fraternity Insurance PurchasingGroup. All DUs, both undergraduate and alumni, must understand and be supportive of the Fraternity's positionregarding risk management. The move to join FIPG is the right one. Delta Upsilon has long been proud ofits tradition of being "different from the rest." Here is another opportunity for DU to join in leading the fraternity world, this time in the area the risk management. This alliance is an urgent effort by leading Fraternal organizations to help reduce the risk that continues to threa ten the very existence of all Greek groups. No longer is hazing "because that's the way its always been done" being tolerated. No longer can alcohol and drug abuse and misuse go unchecked. And no longer are topics of sexual abuse, date rape and sexual harassment to be avoided, in hopes that they "will never happen to us."

L

DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY •

January 1991

These things are happening to us, and to other Greek groups, on a far too regular basis. A proper risk management policy, and a vehicle through which to enforce it, will provide DU and all FIPG members a fighting chance at survival. Membership in FIPG will provide Delta Upsilon's Chapters and Colonies with the advantage of a comprehensive risk management policy. It will also allow them the ability to secure much needed, and many times otherwise unattainable, liability insurance coverage. The FIPG Risk Management Policy "shall apply to all fraternity entities and all levels of fra terni ty membership. " The policy includes provisions for alcohol and drugs, hazing, sexual abuse, and fire, health and safety. The FIPG policy is a stringent one. It is one that will challenge our Fraternity members to act responsibly and reasonably. It will hold all brothers accountable for their actions. Delta Upsilon can no longer tolerate the illicit use of drugs, the abuse and misuseof alcohol, and the improper treatment of women and of our own Brothers. Delta Upsilon can no longer afford to care for those who do not care for Delta Upsilon. As a member of the Fraternity Insurance Purchasing Group, Delta Upsilon is asking nothing more from our members than we should all ask of ourselves as responsible, moral, and productive leaders of society. III

Detailed information on Delta Upsilon's membership in FIPC will be distributed to all undergraduates and to many alumni volunteers. Please contact Fraternity Headquarters if you have any questions or concerns regarding DU's new risk management policy.

Comprehensive Liability Insurance Now Obtainable Acting on a resolution passed by the Fraternity's 155th Convention, Delta Upsilon's Board of Directors has adopted a mandatory liability insurance program for all of the Fraternity's chapters and colonies. The program will provide attractive rates on comprehensive insurance coverage with no exclusions for hazing, sexual harassment or alcohol related violations. This decision was made after extensive examination by the Board revealed that many DU chapters either had no liability insurance, the coverage was inadequate, or exorbitant charges were being paid for existing coverage. Undergraduates and alumni officers will receive further notification in time to cancel existing policies and begin participation in this new program. 5

Board of Directors takes ACTION in Key Areas I am pleased to report that we are making progress in many of the key areas of our Fraternity. At the November Board of Directors meeting, held in Washington, D.c., definitive action was taken in areas critical to protecting both our Fraternity's ideals and its assets.

The President's Report I wish you could have been there! We debated issues. We discussed challenges, We expressed concerns. We presented viewpoints. From time to time, we even disagreed with one another, but even then it was within a fraternal spirit and with high regard by all for Delta Upsilon's future. We listened and we learned from one another. But here's the best part: We didn't procrastinate when it came time for decision-making and actiontaking on the key issues we faced. We took the following action: Education and Training We agreed that Delta Upsilon should take a leadership role in reforming and rededicating the Fraternity to higher ideals and service. We agreed to be a constructive and substantial moral force in modern college life, and to that end, to provide better undergraduate education and training of our members. The ability of the International Fraternity to provide more services designed to improve chapter , programming and to help develop the future leaders of our world, was seen as a key element to our longrange plan. Risk Management We agreed to join the Fraternity Insurance Purchasing Group (FlPG). This was a topic long-discussed, but not acted upon previously. In essence, membership in FIPG will proVide DU with a comprehensive risk management policy including provisions for zero-tolerance relative to alcohol, drugs, hazing, sexual abuse, discrimination and other , unacceptable social ills. And FlPG risk management includes provisions for fire, health, and safety, as well. Because of this action, the Frater8

nity is now eligible to secure minimum insurance coverage for the Fraternity and all its chapters, which until now, we didn't have and couldn't get. Finances We agreed to balance the General Fraternity's budget and not to drain our Foundation funds for operating monies. We've been talking about getting our financial house in order for over ten years! We've been talking about everyone being made aware of the dilemma but frankly, until now, we haven't stepped up to the facts and dealt with them. If we don't Richard E. Meyer, Michigan '61 balance our budgets from here on, we one thing to expand, however, it is could be "out of business" in 5 years! quite another to train and build new Your Board and the Headquarters groups, while continuing to provide staff have already put their money where their mou ths are. 100% of both better service to our existing chapters. Again, to be successful it takes time, groups have joined the President's involvement, and money! Suffice to Club at levels which exceed last year say, we agreed to expand to camby nearly 85%. If everyone did that, puses where success is likely and we'd balance our budget this year. where the Greek System is alive, Alumni Involvement We determined that under the healthy, and dynamic. As to Housing, we agreed that umbrella of building better chapters while this is also an important area, it and addressing our financial needs should be delegated more to local for the future, we have targeted alumni, except for our ability to increased alumni involvement as our provide direction and support.

We need your the way. As we provide each of our help to improve our standards of performance and to advance the chapters with better opportunities for success, we will be helping build Fraternity against popular negative perceptions. Please join us in helping tomorrows leaders! And, after all, to set new and higher standards of that's the bottom line. Come join us. We need you. excellence, responsibility, and Besides ... it's rewarding! accountability throughout our Fraternity. The best place to start is with your own Alumni Chapter.

25 Collegiate Activities Review These reports were written by undergraduates and alumni of the Fraternity's chapters, colonies and provisional colonies. A few neglected to produce reports, in which case, that fact is indicated.

University uf Alberta The past semester has been one of great improvement and strengthening of Alberta DU. Our first term rush was very successful. By refining our rush methods we have pledged 15 men, bringing our chapter size to SO members. Indicators suggest an equally successful second term rush is possible. Perhaps the greatest area of improvement has been in the realm of membership development. A comprehensive scholarship program is leading to unprecedented levels of academic achievement. Another new element in membership development is a lecture series with alumni guest speakers touching on topics ranging from time management to alcohol awareness. As well we were the only Canadian chapter to downlink the Will Keirn teleconference, which has been instrumental in boosting membership motivation and involvement. The house is at full occupancy for the second consecutive year. Finally, I would like to thank all alumni who attcnded rush stag in October. I hope you enjoyed the event. The next formal event will be our annual spring formal. However, this year, we will be presenting a key-note address by a yet to be detcrmine alumnus. Tentative date for this event is the second weekend of March. Details will be mailed as plans are confirmed. Roland C. Lequier '90, President

University of Arkansas As I prepare to leave office, I have never been so proud to be a member of Delta Upsilon. In the past year, I have learned so much. I don't think I ever realized how important DU is to my character, until now. I would like to thank the charter members for bringing DU to Arkansas. On November 10, we celebrated the15thanniversary of Arkansas DO. To say it was a huge success would not be giving Ed Crane '76 enough credit for organizing such an event. As alumni flew in from England, Nicaragua and California, a mixture of all classes from 1976 to 1990. With over one-third of the alumni from the first composite returning, the undergraduates were able to learn the history of Arkansas DU. Our alumni were able to tour the house and see the renovations that were made under the direction of Brian Beaird '77. With dedication from both undergraduates and alumni, our chapter is now ready to expand our chapter. Look for DU to be as successful at Arkansas as Razorback basketball. Paul B. Moorman '90, President

University of TexasArlington ArlingtonDU isona steady pattern of growth. The semester started with rush in which we pledged nine men. Recognizing the need for an all-year rush, we hope to pledge six to eight men as the year progresses. The chapter built the 21st Annual Haunted House, the proceeds from which went to the Ruby Steel Fund to help fight cancer. Several of the rooms in the house have been renovated including a new banister for the main stairs. We wish to thank the alumni and the housing corporation for their contributions to hel p enable us to make these renovations. We encourage all alumni to come visit the house and see the work that has been done. Jeffrey S. Rice '92, President

California State UniversityBakersfield (No Report from President Montes)

Baylor University Baylor DU is well on the way back to the great frat ernity of our founding years. We are growing strong, and are once again a thriving organization. Although we are one ofthe smaller groups on campus, we are one of the most active. Our first string football team advanced to the finals of an intramural tournament and had a great shOWing. We finished third in the Zeta Tau Alpha "Great Treat," the annual All-fraternity Games. Our big project this year was the first annual DU Christmas Tree Sale. With the help of Britt Hollingsworth we sold trees and wreaths throughout the University community. This has been one of the most successful fund raising projects we have had here in several years and raised several hundred dollars for the Villages. A final word of thanks goes to Leadership Consultant Jeff Stafford. He gave us some great ideas during his visit, and those we implemented have turned out successful. You're doing a great job, keep up the good work! Andrew Konen '91, President

Bowling Green State University (No report from President Kullman)

Bradley University Bradley DU started off to a busy semester. It began by notifying the chapter about Sweepstakes, this excitement carried over into a rush of 29 men under the guidance of Michael Puttin '91. Shortly after rush we went full force into Greek Week and are happy to report the trophy stayed home for the second straight year.

We are currently implementing new ideas to help us continue to grow. An annual DU lectureship series is being established which will bring national renowned speakers to campus and well as local speakers of interest to the chapter. This years series began with Larry Speakes, the former press secretary to Ronald Reagan,and Al Mcguire, NBC sports analyst and former coach ofMarq uette. Both spoke to the university and came to the house for a reception afterward. In addition to these notable speakers, our after dinner speakers have included faculty members who have spoken on a variety of topics. We are adding these events to our permanent agenda. Bradley DU has also been busy with philanthropic events. For example one new philanthropy was to pair up with a sorority and escort under privileged children to the zoo, followed by a pizza party at the house. Theoutcomewas gratifying for both the children and the members. During a weekend in November we were privileged to share some valuable time with Brother Steve Gerber during his visit to Bradley for a leadership conference. We plan to add new ideas to our agenda throughout the semester for the purpose of building a stronger chapter. If anyone has some ideas they would like to share please call. Norman Sidler '91, President

Brown University The Brown Chapter is now at a diverse 68 total members. Included are members of the soccer, sailing, rugby, crew, baseball and golf teams! Early in the year the chapter was graced with a visit by Brother Colin Farrar '89, to whom special kudos is given for recently graduating number one in his classat Naval Officer Candidate Training school. We look forward to visits from other Brothers as the year progresses. Andrew Rosen '91, President

Bucknell University Greetings from Bucknell. This year has already proved to be a particularly productive one, This summer at the annual convention Bucknell won two major awards: one for outstanding pledge ed ucation and another for coping with the greatest amount of adversity. The chapter was rather proud of these distinctions. Our participation in the community started the first day back to school with a free car wash to all those parents dropping their children off at Bucknell for the first time ,and has been continuing ever since. Half a dozen brothers are involved in the Big Brother program here in Lewisburg, while a significantly greater number have been acting as tutors in the neighboring schools. One brother even took it upon himself to teach an elderly man 路 to drive! DU has volunteered to help the Alcohol Awareness Committee during their special week long activity. Our annual Halloween Party for the children of faculty was, again, a success, as was

University of Calgary The 1990-91 school year brought some welcome changes to Calgary DU. Our members are enthusiastic and we are making a good impression on campus. Several members traveled to the Alberta Chapter to watch the Will Keirn Teleconference. Several members attended the Canadian Conference in Winnipeg and we have also made arrangements to attended the upcoming Regional Leadership Seminar at Washington State. Theyear has become a productive one. Expansion Director Derek Dunham helped us reorganize our chapter executive and our participation in the Terry Fox Run was very successful. Lastly, one of our members was elected Vice President of the Calgary Greek Council. Calgary DU hopes to continue its success, in this our first ful1 year as a chapter. Brian R.

into civic and university leaders. We are deeply indebted to CDUA for financing a general refurbishing of the house kitchen. The result ofCDUA's repair has been an enhancement of the quality and cleanliness of our food preparation and delivery, and an upsurge in enthusiasm among the brothers. Participation in campus-wide Greek events has been successful and enjoyable this semester. The Delta Upsilon team first place in Delta Gamma's" Anchor Splash" competition and we look forward to our entrant winning Kappa Alpha Theta's "Mr. Fraternity" competition. Of course, we are priming to defend our title as Greek Sing champions, and to return to our winning form in the Spring Carnival booth competition. Our Buggy program, under the leadership of Dave Ross '92, and Brian Zimmerman '92, is exceptional1y strong this year. We expect to rol1 three buggies and chal1enge the top teams on campus this Spring. We would like to thank al1 of our alumni who returned to the Chapter house on October 5-7 for Homecoming festivities, your enthusiasm makes us proud to be DUs. Also, I'd like to invite al1 alumni to. Spring Carnival 1991, to be held April 19-20. Hope to see you there! Ash Vasudeva '91, President

Cornell University (No report from Presiderit Mahoney)

Creighton University This faU has been a time of planning for Creighton DU. We lost a record number of seniors last spring and will lose another large class this year. We have implemented new rush programs and plan to build our membership in the spring. Our chapter held its annual teeter-a-thon in October and raised money for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Omaha. We were assisted by the Gamma Phi Beta sorority and held teeter locations on Creighton campus and at a shopping mall. We initiated our fall pledge class at our Founders Day Alumni luncheon. We had a very good turnout and hope to see many more of our alumni next year. Edward Leo Welsh III '91, President George W. McNary 75,AlumniTreasurer

搂5 Collegiate Activities Review DePauw University Our spring semester ended up very well last year with our chapter receiving the 1st annual President's award President's Award. We were the only fraternity to win this award which judged each house on five aspects of fraternity organization: 1) Public relations,2) Interfraternity relations, 3) Philanthropy, 4) Membership Education, and 5) Financial structure. Fall rush was a big success, we ended up with 22 pledges, even though first year male enrollment was down significantly. Philanthropy and member education have started out strong. A "movie night" sponsored by DU and a sorority raised $500 for The Villages. Our annual Halloween Safe House provided 200 children and their parents with the opportunity to stop and enjoy hot cider,candy, music, gifts and a live radio broadcast on the campus radio station. We also sponsored an all-campus lecture by Mary Peterson from Ohio State, on Greek life. We would like to congratulate the following Brothers for their recent achievements: Jamie Williams, selected to the Greek Judicial Board; and Greg Portel, elected President of IFe. DePauw DU would like to express our gratitude to the alumni chapter for their continued support which has made our achievements and success possible. Colin J. McClary '91, President Dr. Bruce Gastineau '64, Alumni Pres.

University of Florida Florida DU experienced an excellent fall semester and we have our sights set on a great spring. Fall rush brought 14 quality men into our membership and we are looking to continue this tradition in the new semester. During the fall term, we once again excelled in athletics and Greek relations, and had a drastically improved attitude towards scholastic achievement. On the philanthropic side DU started a new fund-raiser in the fall. It is a car stereo contest and exhibition called "Pump Up The Jams." We hope to raise over $500 for The Villages. In the spring, along with the women of Delta Delta Delta, we will spearhead campus involvement in the Great Gainesville Road Race, a local5K run that gained national exposure on ESPN. The proceeds will benefit "Stop Children's Cancer." The Alumni Corporation is planning to repair the chapter house roof as well as do some other needed repairs. In addition to the annual Spring Alumni Weekend, we are planning a Spring Parents Weekend. It will soon be Spring Break. We extend an invitation for all chapters traveling south to stop by to see our house and brotherhood.

Georgia Institute of Technology Georgia Tech DU has been quite successful in upholding DU's continuing tradition of excellence. Scholastically, we ranked 6th spring quarter and 9th summer quarter. These ran kings place the chapter in the top third on campus. Thanks to a tremendous effort by all our Brothers, we pledged 21 men during fall rush, well above our Membership Development Plan incentive goal set by the General Fraternity. We are having a very active fall quarter, with a variety of social functions, including several sorority mixers. We also plan to have activities with a local Atlanta-area orphanage, and are pursuing an opportunity to become involved in the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Jed Harvey '91, President

University of Guelph Guelph DU remains at the forefront of the growing Greek System at the University of Guelph. With twenty members graduating in the '89'90 year, rush was considered of prime importance. Thanks to the ingenUity and creativity of rush chairmen, YuriN. Machado '92 and Michael M. Weber '92, the chapter will remainin the30to 40 member range. We would like to thank the Illinois Chapter for their hospitality during the Leadership Institute in August. The event was extremely well organized and Brother Will S. Keim, Pacific '75, proved to the Canadian Chapters his reputation for being the greatest speakers on North American campus' today. With a successful rush this year and continuing success inour fund-raising and charity events, the chapter looks forward to continued growth and success at the University of Guelph, setting standards for other fraternities to follow. Thomas R. Everitt '91, President

Hamilton College Hamilton DU has had an extremely productive fall. With increasing alumni confidence and an unusually dedicated membership, the chapter has been able to expand its programming to encompass a wide range of activities. These new programs represent Hamilton DUs continued interest in serving the community and in educating our members. Our primary community service activity was a Halloween Party/Haunted House for underprivileged children from neighboring Utica. We have also been in contact with the American Cancer Society and plan to host a major event in the spring. Our traditional outings with the Utica Boys Club will also continue. We have also expanded our member education program. We will be hosting a CPR class for members and have scheduled a group discussion on acquaintance rape with a member of the college counseling staff. Our semester concluded with a Faculty / Alumni Thanksgiving dinner that allowed members to meet with professors in an informal setting. Hamilton DU has completed a successful year with a number of improvements on the physical plant. The attitude and activities of the chapter reflect our desire to constantly improve and we look forward to an even more successful 1991. James O'Brien '91, President Paul Crumrine '71 , Alumni President

University of Houston The fall semester has been a period of readjustment for Houston DU. We started the semester with a new rush system. The new system prod uced six pledges. We expect to pledge more men in spring rush. This was also a readjustment period for the new Executive Council. Several new faces took over positions of leadership. This was quite a change and has taken time to get used to.

~ Collegiate Activities Review Although we have had some adjusting to do, we have still maintained old traditions and nutured new ones. The 3rd Annual Mekong Delta Party was a huge success, with several Greek organizations attending. During Homecoming, we continued the U of H tradition of DU pushball. Eight teams entered and had fun in the mud. In November, we took our yearly road trip to a Cougar football game. This year we visited the University of Texas in Austin. We visited the Texas Chapter and had a great time. In December, we will continueour philanthropic endeavors with the Star of Hope Mission Christmas Party. We look to have an equally eventful spring semester and a successful rush. Also, we would like to thank the Brothers from Southwest Missouri State for visiting us. Mauricio Rondon '92, President

University of Illinois DU remains at the top of the Greek System at the University of Illinois. We truly enjoyed hosting the 500+ Leadership delegates in Champaign this summer. Hopefully, it was a successful weekend for all those who attended. Rush was a success as we have a pledge class of 23. We were once again one of the top rushed houses at the world's largest Greek system. Scholastically, we moved up to fourth in the fraternity grade rankings out of 50 fraternities. Our chapter GPA is a 4.15/5.0, which is well above the all-mens and all-fraternity averages. DUs have now been in the top 10 in the grade ran kings for the last five semesters. We have also been busy socially as we first welcomed the new pledges of Chi Omega at our Bid Night party. The football season has been great in our football block with women of Gamma Phi Beta. We also have events with AI pha Epsilon Phi, Phi Mu and Delta Delta Delta. Homecoming on October 20 also proved a highlight as we hosted over 200 alumni. Finally, DUs are the campus volleyball champions and have the number one ranked soccer team. Our beach volleyball tournament with Alpha Gamma Delta raised over $1,000 for The Villages and Juvenile Diabetes. We also have events planned at the Champaign Boy's Club. Thomas M. O'Connor '91, President

Indiana University For the second straight year, brothers returning to the Indiana Chapter were greeted by a number of structural changes. With the remodeling of all floors now completed, we have found yet another asset to assist us in our rush functions. With the recent election of officers to the Executive Board, I am fully expecting a banner year for Indiana DU. On October 14, 1990 we initiated 14 members, as well as being presented with the first annual David Matthew VerHagen scholarship. The scholarship, in memory of the '85 IV graduate, will be presented on a yearly basis to an individual personifying one of the four founding

principles, diffusion of liberal culture. We currently have 22 men going through pledgeship and are making preparations for a strong spring rush. Intramurally, we are off to an unprecedented start. Our football team took first place in the campus-wide "Alpha Gam Slam" tournament, while the soccer team netted second in the annual Phi Psi tourney. Proceeds from both events went to support the United Way. Philanthropic efforts remain strong at Indiana DU. The pledges completed a raffle with Delta Delta Delta and eight other members participated in the Alpha Phi "Teeter totter-a-thon." Recently, Brothers took time out to spend the day with the Bloomington Girls Club. For the spring, we will begin planning ollr first "DU Twist-Off," a Twister tournament,as well as a "Hot Tub-a-thon" with Gamma Phi Beta. Indiana DU would like to extend its gratitude to all the alumni who contributed so graciously during the Homecoming weekend, and we trust we will see you again during Little 500. James S. Martin '92, President

University of Kansas The fall semester has begun, and with it have come the challenges and successes known to DU. The school year began for several of the officers in August with the 1990 Leadership Institute in Champaign, Illinois. The Kansas Chapter once again had an honorable showing, bringing home several awards including The Jeanatta and Karl Menninger Trophy for Philanthropic Work. After arriving back at school in mid-August, we rounded out our new pledge class through formal rush filling the chapter house to its capacity of 64 men. Our efforts over the summer and in formal rush have amounted in some 33 very impressive men. September has highlighted by the 10th Annual Greg Wilkerson Memorial Football Tournament, to benefit The Villages. Following last years $10,000 mark, our highest ever, we set this years goal at $12,000. Through the productive guidance of our philanthropic chairmen, Grant Kaufman '92 and Trevor Wohlford '92, the men of the Kansas Chapter raised more than $14,500. As the dust is still settling from the tournament, we are focusing on the remainder of our goals for the year. Plans and groundwork for this years Rock Chalk Revue Show are diligently being worked out by all of our theatrical minds. The Ducks football team is coming off an impressive showing in our own tourney as regular season play soon begins. Ducks softball and volleyball teams are also prepared for regular season play. Our academics continue to be on the rise here at KU. We remain above the all-mens average and the all-mens Greek average while still gaining ground on our heaviest competition. Earlier this year we saw the appointment of two new chapter counselors, Mark Sinclair '88 and Brad Demo '84. We are excited to have them

University of Manitoba Manitoba DU has concentrated its efforts on the rebuilding the strength of the chapter. Our first step in rebuilding was the hosting the DU Canadian Conference, where Brothers Steve Gerber, Will Greenburg and Brothers from all Canadian chapters and colonies were in attendance.

North Carolina St. University With the end of another year we stop to reflect on what we have accomplished. At the beginning of the year we set goals of: improved academic standing; improved public image; and increased chapter membership. We have made great strides towards all of these goals. Over the past year our GPA has risen by .25, and we received the academic award for excellence from the International Fraternity. We have completed construction of our computer room and study lounge, which should insure future progress in scholastics. In order to improve public relations we resolved to force the public to take note of our positive actions. We conducted five philanthropic events over the past year. The largest was our annual food drive. This year the drive generated over 58,000 pounds of food for the needy.

University of Northern Iowa Northern Iowa is "rolling out the old, and brining in the new." Installation of new officers took place on November 11,followingthreeweeks of transition. The new officers are excited about DU and will prove to be a strong force in making the chapter even stronger. We received an Award of Chapter Excellence (ACE) for the third quarter. This distinguished us from all other chapters on campus. Alumni participation was excellent during our Homecoming and as a result of their generosity we were able to rewire our house over Christmas Break. In addition, we will be installing a computer lab that will be dedicated to our founding chapter -- Psi Omega. It is an exciting time to be a DU at Northern Iowa. We would like to, again, thank all our alumni for their continued support. Matthew Meline '90, President

Northwestern University If things keep up the way they're"going for DU's Northwestern Chapter, it won't be long before the university student offices to the DU house. Recently elected Interfraternity Council president Mark Verschuur is the latest DU to assume a cam pus-wide leadershi p position as DU is quickly becoming the most active fraternity on campus. Verschuur joins John Ikenberry, Associated Student Government VP of student services and Christian Corser, ASG speaker of the senate, in leading DU's brigade of campus leaders. Brad Schultze is the outgoing IFC Vice President of special service. In athletics, DU boasts five Varsity athletes, many club athletes and a member of the cheerleader team. Jackson Lounsberry joined the basketball team as a walk-on. Matt Johnson and Steve Shewfelt have each earned two lettersinswimming and sophomores Jarred Preston (Soccer) and Chris Kaminsky (Wrestling) are showing improvement in their sports. Rhett Silver is in his first year as a Wildcat cheerleader. DU is also home to members of the crew, basketball, water polo, hockey and soccer, lacrosse and track club teams. DU's impact on campus can also be felt in other campus organizations including: ROTC, the Daily Northwestern, Zoo Crew, Dance Marathon, Mayfest and Wa-Muu,to namea few. Involvement on campus has proven helpful as we are adapting to the university's deferred rush policy. While interaction with freshmen has been limited this quarter, our visibility has given us an advantage. We would like to thank our alumni for the much needed gift of chapter room furnit路ure. Your support is appreciated.

University of Oklahoma Oklahoma DU finished another successful year with the close of the Spring Semester. A strong academic effort placed the DUs in second place for the current year. Soccer and softball, both traditional chapter strong points, were rained out which kept DU out of the race for the All-Sports trophy; however, we posted a fifth placeshowing. Tis summer, over thirty alumni and their families gathered at the chapter house for a new, annual picnic, and next year's event promises to be even larger. This fall's formal rush found twenty-five men pledging DU. Currently, the pledge class has a 3.0 GPA, is competitive in the pledge football league and is working on several service projects. These projects are highlighted by personal involvement in campus and community activities. Campus involvement continues here at Oklahoma DU. Brothers still occupy pOSitions on IFC staff, Greek Week Exec., Student Congress, Campus Crusade for Christ, College Republicans, University Sing Exec., and Scandals Exec. We also just completed our annual Run of Dallas, which raised $8,000 for the American Lung Association. Christian Brim '92, President

University of Oregon Oregon DU had a very successful fall rush and pledged 17 men. We also have two hold overs from previous rushes who have joined this pledge class. The pledge program, headed by Joe Stupfel and John Patton, is going even better than we had expected and the pledges have become quite involved with both DU and the University. Our Public Relations Chairman, with the help of the pledge class, organized a lecture featuring a speaker from Food for Lane County, who spoke on the topics of urban homeless ness and hunger. Early in the Fall semester we repainted the inside of both of our houses and attended to various cosmetic defects in the houses structure. Complex Coordinator, Mike Bethers, also led the chapter in the installation of a sand-volleyball court in an unused portion of our back yard. In general, the Fall semester has gotten us off to a great start on the year. The Brotherhood is strong and is getting many things accomplished. Ryan Lillie '92, Secretary

Oregon State University Oregon State DU continues to enjoy great success in its pursuit of excellence with the pledging of 22 men. The pledges have completed over 450 hours of community service and are heavily involved on campus,seeking the Thanes's award. Intramurals sports remain strong, and the chapter was 2nd in grades among 29 frdtermdes. The discovery of a dry rot problem within the structure of the house has the members pooling all available resources to raise funds for repair. Hopefully this challenge wi!! be met soon, an estimated $5000 is still needed. The future of our chapter looks strong, with members involved in varsity football, varsity baseball, LaCrosse, campus broadcasting, IFC executive council, MUPC, numerous honoraries and other positions such as yearbook and Greek Council. We were fortunate enough to be honored once again with the Chapter ofthe Year award, as well as Most Improved in Grades.

Brothers Drew Spero, Mitch Geller, George Loftis, Travis Hughes, Brett Long and Steve Varadyare joining other Greeks in volunteering to tutor students at a local grade school. Brother Ed Baldry should also be commended for being elected to the Intercollegiate Athletic Authority Board. Finally, we would like to thank every DU chapter for their $10 per man assessment. As you know, the assessment was the result of litigation fee stemming from a lawsuit filed against our chapter. Feel confident that although we have room to improve, we have all worked hard toward making DU the strongest fraternity at SDSU. If any DU has advice, a suggestion or would just like to visit the chapter, we would like to hear from you.

These pledges are ambitious and eager to help with goals and improvements. SDSU DU owes a debt of gratitude to Leadership providing us with invaluable advice. We especially appreciate his attitude and understanding of the situations faced here. This is big year for us in sports. We completed an undefeated season in football and advanced to the play-ofts. We also have some of the best soccer, basketball and softball players in IFC. We sponsored many events including: Alco-

The next thing on our agenda was rush. We set our goal at 25 pledges, a goal that hasn't been reach since our re-colonization. After two weeks ' of consistent hard. work, we ended rush with 28 quality men on our pledge roster. Thi~ is the largest pledge class on campus. Re-organizing chapter programs was a must this semester. We have implemented new scholarship and membership development programs. Our scholarship program 'includes inter-house competition, periodic grade checks and an academic advisement board. Our goal is to recapture our number one status in campus GPA. Also, we encourage our alumni to participate in this program by providing awards to our chapters many top scholars. The fall semester has proven to be very successful. We are already a powerhouse in campus athletics and we plan on doing the same in academics and community service. Our chapter is experiencing a high morale and will continue to grow into a dynamic brotherhood.

"The Power of Caring" teleconference was sponsored by Delta Upsilon on September 30. The Administration and Greek system were grateful to be given the opportunity to be able to view the event. The sponsorship proved to everyone the commitment Delta Upsilon has to advance the quality of Greek life in the '90s. We held our 4th annual haunted house in late November. Over 200 people came through the Chapter house on the finally night of the event. A committee has also been set up to plan our 20th anniversary activities in 1991 . The advances that are occurring at South Dakota DU will continue in the '90s. We hope all alumni in the area participate in our anniversary celebration. The schedule of events will be supplied soon.

~ Collegiate Activities Review University of Toronto With the coming of the fall term Toronto DU has seen some exciting changes. With our Ontario government grantof$120,000, we have had all our housing violations repaired and brought up to city code by professional contractors. Theexterior of the house has been painted; all faulty wiring has been repaired; and our second floor now sports two rebuilt washrooms. For advice in overseeing the work, we owe great thanks to Tim Beattie and Dan Byrne - two of our illustrious alumni - as well as to Keith Bertsch, yet another professional contractor and a close friend of DU. Thanks to these substantial improvements, our rush program has boomed. Our house, which sleeps 20,isnow full,and with 16pledgeswehave well exceeded the modest quota that International set for us. Not surprisingly, the infusion of some new blood has paid off in events inside and outside the house. In U of 1"s Greek Week, we placed 3rd in the Banner Contest, 2nd in Brunny boat racing (a quintessentially Canadian tradition), and 1st in the Greek God contest, results which easily won the Greek Week games for us. As announced earlier, we will be holding our 91st annual Alumni-Initiate Banquet on November 22nd, with Brother William Howland, the former Chief} ustice of Ontario's Supreme Court, as our 'keynote speaker. This is, to say the least, a big event for us, which is why we've mailed out 1,300 invitations. We enthusiastically welcome DUs near and far to join us. Finally, we would like to thank the Brothers of McMaster Colony and the Georgia Tech Chapter for visiting our newly renovated chapter house. We would urge all DUs in the area to drop by and see our transformed house. We ourselves took advantage of the Canadian Thanksgiving (October 5-8) weekend to stage perhaps our most ambitious road trip ever, into the heart of sunny South Carolina. One happy president was able to see his folks and 14 summer-loving Canadians got to grab some fun in the sun on a real beach.

Virginia Polytechnic Institute The Virginia Tech Chapter would like to first apologize for not having a report in theJuly issue of the Quarterly. Some unfortunate events and communications difficulties led to this occurrence. In early October, 11 men, two from past pledge classes and all nine from the most recent group pledged were initiated. Our current rush is going excellent, and we anticipate pledging at least 14 quality gentlemen. Past debts and obligations that put us in financial dilemma are being extinguished. The strength of our brotherhood has enabled us to overcome this problem and others that have surfaced. We held our Parent's Weekend, our annual Halloween Party, Semi-Formals and Homecoming, which we did with Delta Zeta. Our sports teams are anchored in the polls of Virginia Tech's competitive intramural system. The softball team is ranked 7th and the soccer team 8th overall. Our chapter has become dedicated to community service. We anticipate in Blackburg'sBroomin'

With this addition our chapter membership is above eighty. In September, the chapter was involved with the Macomb Balloon Rally. DlJs were assigned to work as crew members and to sell T-shirts. We raised $1400 for our house improvement fund. The chapter has established a scholarship in honor of Dr. Josephine Johnson, our first academic advisor. The scholarship will be awarded to a sophomore or junior who is recognized for involvement in the Greek community at the chapter or campus level, displays academic achievement and participates in community activities. The recipient will receive a Cash award covering academic books. Josephine retired June 1, 1990 as vice-preSident for advancement and public service. In late September, a group of brave brothers entered the Delta Tau Delta big wheel races and captured the 3rd piace trophy defeating 74 teams. The chapter continues to stay in shape by competing in almost every intramural event. . Members living in the house this year are being treated to lunch and dinner catered by the Red Ox restaurant five daysofthe week. This is a great step forward from the residence hall cafeteria food. Brother Ron Kalish was selected to the University Homecoming court. He is one of five men accepted by the university committee. We hope to have more good news about Brother Kalish after homecoming is over! The chapter is very proud that four members were selected for membership into the Order of Omega, during the 1989-90 school year. At the DU's Leadership Institute the chapter was given three awards: first place in the Director's Division for the Most Improved Chapter, an academic award for being above the all-men GPA, and the President's Club honor for pledging and initiating over 30 men.

Case Western Reserve University Western Reserve DU has moved into a new house. After five years in the old house, we were focused out to accommodate the expansion plans of the Cleveland Institute of Music. The new location was discovered after a lengthy search of the University Circle area, and the current facility does have some key advantages over the old house; it offers more rooms for Brothers to live in, and features a kitchen large enough to start an inhouse meal plan. Years without a well developed pledge program have taken a toll on the chapter. The comprehensive pledge manual written this year by Sanat Dixit '91, will be instrumental insolvingthis problem. Events for the fall included the annual reception with the University President, Dr. Agnar Pytte, and a Founder's Day celebration.

We began to plan for Spring '91 rush and are very optimistic that it will be eyen more successful than the past semester's rush program. Besides rush, we are very involved on campus. A DU is Greek Council President and we have four members who hold executive offices on the IFC. Members are involved in Student Activities Council, Student Alumni Association, Greek Week, Homecoming Steering Committee and Student Orientation Staff. With this diversity we can't help but be strong on campus. We are proud to announce that we were recently honored

~ Collegiate Activities Review the 1990 "President's Award for Excel1ence." The trophy has created new motivation for the upcoming year. We have started to refinish the upstairs portion of our house. The waUs, carpet and banister still need work, but it is being accomplished. These renovations were scheduled to be finished by October 14, the date of our Annual Alumni/ Undergraduate FootbaU Game. Alumni and their families were our guests at a "chili feed" after the game. Chapter members have begun to do may commu nity awareness projects. On September 29, we painted a house for an elderly man, which was a volunteer project sponsored by Mellnonite Services of Wichita. Other activities include: bowling with school children, which was sponsored by Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Something else we have started, thanks to Brothers Brad Beets and Paul Edminston, is the ground work for an Alumni House Corporation Board. Thegroup will oversee the financial matters of the chapter and to act as an advisory group for undergraduates. Jaysen P. Prophet '91 President

University of Wisconsin Wisconsin DU is maintaining its standards of excel1ence in al1 areas and is aiming for continued success in the coming year. This faU, after another successful dry rush, 24 men were pledged. This was the largest class on campus! Our philanthropy program continues to grow. We sponsor developmental1y disabled young men through a program cal1ed Youth ARC. We held the second annual "Day on the Lake" benefit water-ski show to support Youth ARC. It was a successful event and we hope it becomes a strong tradition here. Another tradition already deeply rooted here is winning the annual homecoming competitions. We have won four out of the last five years and are gearing-up to win our fourth in a row. Already, each member of the house has donated blood in the blood drive. We have had much success in the year-long Badger Bowl sports competition consistently placing high in the standings. This year our goal is to capture first place. So far, the footbal1 and soccer teams are undefeated. According to academic rankings, we are currently second out of 33 fraternities on campus. Congratulations to Tim Westlake '91 who has become a member of Phi Beta Kappa. One major house improvement has been the instaUation of new doors and moldings throughout the house as a result of fantastic alumni support. Our kitchen has been improved with the addition of a walk-in cooler. We also have a new cook who has boosted morale 100%! Scott C. Barnem '92, Chapter Relations

COLONIES Arkansas College Editor's note: The Fraternity has granted colony status to a local fraternity at Arkansas Col1ege in Batesville, Arkansas. A colonization ceremony was performed there by the fraternity 's Expansion Director on Sunday, December 2,1990. Brother Joseph P. Byrd, Colorado '65, Assistant Professor of Marketing at Arkansas Col1ege, has been serving as the groups faculty advisor for over one year.

University of British Columbia With our colonization on September 26, 1990 we became the newest fraternity here at the University of British Columbia and the only nonsecret Greek organization. We started with eight men and have grown to twelve within one month. The IFC has provided much support along with the Brothers from the University of Washington. We are working closely with key alumni in an effort to form foundations that will ensure the success of DU at UBC. Our first event, an alumni introduction night, was held in early November and was quite successful. In the works for the near future are a colony retreat to Victoria and a combined pledge dance with the Washington Chapter. Our philanthropic project for November was the selling of tickets for a Grey Cup banquet; proceeds going to the Big Brother program of British Columbia. DU is settling back in here at UBC, we are looking forward to continued success. Chris Schatz, President

Iona College lona DU has gotten the 1990 Fal1 semester off to a terrific start. We began with a rush seminar held the first weekend ofthesemester. Theseminar was conducted by Brother Bill Bittner, Bradley 74, who has also joined usasan Alumni Advisor. With the brotherhood prepared for rush, we succeeded in attracting a large group of interested men. We are now beginning our pledge period with a group of twelve pledges, who were initiated in a solemn ceremony held October 2. The ceremony was attended by faculty, administration, parents and several sisters from a local sorority. Our philanthropy projects for the semester are through the planning stages. We participated in lana's Charity Carnival on Columbus Day and have set a date for our second annual Party for Purpose to benefit the National Heart Assoc. lona DU's primary concern and the focus of most of our energy is in preparing for our Installation in January. The Instal1ation Committee be-

gan planning the ceremony and dinner as an event the Brothers can not wait for, and one that should take the col1ege by storm. On campus, DU continues to lead by example and play an active role in campus events. The Brothers were praised and thanked recently for their help and participation in the Col1ege's 50th Jubilee celebration. In closing, we would like to thank aU who attended the 1990 Leadership Institute for a great time and the Illinois Chapter for hosting the event. We would also like to extend an invitation to any Brothers who would like to visit and share in the DU New York experience. Gerard A. Garofolo '91, President Chris LeVecchio '92, Vice President

McMaster University McMaster DU began a successful 1990-91 academic year with the end of its most successful rush week Out of 120 interested men we have chosen the top 14 to join our third pledge class. This high number of interested students, which is more than double 1st years rush, is a good indicator of the increased popularity of fraternities here at McMaster. We are happy to see this increase in student support as we continue to battle the school administration over recognition. Our colony is now the number one Greek organization on campus as we continue to keep a strong name in the community through our philanthropicefforts in blood donor clinics for the Red Cross and raising money for UNICEF. Our biggest objective in the fal1 was our Installation on November 17, 1990, which was a geat success. Thank you all that have helped us reach this goal. Gregory W. Kostiw, President

University of Minnesota After pledging four early this faU the Minnesota Colony now has grown to over a dozen men committed to the revival of Minnesota DU. We heldaninitiationon November 20, which included a reception for alumni and the new initiates. We have continued to develop in al1 areas of Fraternity operations. Many thanks go to Russ Grundhauser,NorthDakota '83, who has been with us from the beginning. The Colony selected two,philanthropies to complete in the coming year. We are doing volunteer work at a local hospital and have participated in a community SAFE program to aid in the improvement of our neighborhood. We are currently renting a house near campus and the centrallocation has helped us develop. Our Alumni Chapter is in the process of being organized and advisors have been identified for individual colony officers. Any alumnus in the Minneapolis area with the desire to assist us in this revival effort is encouraged to contact us. Chris Fisher, President EditorS note: see page 21 of the Quarterly for all chapter and colony addresses.

~ Collegiate Activities Review University of Rochester The Rochester Colony has accomplished a great deal so far this year and we feel that our goal of installation is in sight. After an especially cr~ ative rush that included pumpkin carving, we have accumulated a class of seven men. Colony programming has greatly benefited from the summer Leadership Institute. We attended the teleconference hosted by Dr. Will Keim and the Colony has sponsored seminars on organ donation and time management for the University community. Our philanthropic activities have included working with other Creeks on the semiannual clean-up of the local Ronald McDonald house and selling cups for the Villages. We currently have in thea fund-raiser fortheSenaca Park Zoo. For Homecoming, we entered a float and a spirit banner and Brother MarkVincent was elected Homecoming King. In addition, our CPA for the last semester was a 3.05 which is well above the all-men's average and is one of the highest on campus. At our current rate of progress, a spring installation is becoming more of a really than a goal. Our new mailing address isC.P.U. Box 276874, Rochester, New York, 14627. Edward Tannouse '92, President

Temple University Faculty strikes, student rallies, and a nonexistent rush would the best way to describe the atmosphere at Temple University this fall. The strike lasted 30 long and bitter days, the end coming only after a Pennsylvania State judge ordered the teachers back to work because of the students well-being. Temple DU has taken all of this craziness in stride however. This fall saw us take in our first pledge class of 10 men to bring our numbers up to 30. Presently in intramurals we are entering the All-University League football playoff and stand a good chance of taking the trophy. The Colony is very proud to announce that Dr. Lynn Miller, Kansas '?? ,(he won'tlell us his year) will be serving as colony Faculty Advisor. We would also like to congratulate PaulSierzinski '92, who was recently inducted into the Order of Omega. Our progress toward installation has been rocketed along through the help of Brother Craig Franz,Bucknell '75, who helped us plan for success on our first Executive Council Retreat, and Jeff Stafford, Nebraska '90, whose ideas and insights were invaluable during his visit here. Temple DU is looking forward to the spring and an early installation (get ready Judge!), as well as a successful rush and a happy faculty! Timothy W. Trainor '92, President

Texas A&M University (No report from President Lopez)

Western Maryland College In the spring semester of the 1988-89 school year, a group of men from Western Maryland

28

College decided to form a fraternity. Western Maryland is a small Liberal Arts school in Westminster, Maryland, with four sororities, four fraternities (two local and two national-- Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Delta Theta), and now a DU colony. Our group began looking at several national fraternities. Because of difficulties with our local Greek Council, we hit a low point in developing our group. However, by the next year we regained our enthusiasm and began to make progress. After contacting Delta Upsilon wehad a group vote and chose to affiliate with DU and we have been working toward obtaining a charter since that time. It has not been an easy task. We completed steps required by the school, steps that have had several interpretations, and then had to backtrack and do them over again. We were finally officially sanctioned by the Greek Council after a vote in early November. Our first president (and only WMC DU alumnus) David Ross and current president Max Kable both worked hard at contacting the Fraternity, making arrangements for presentations and working with the college administration. Brother Samuel S. Jones, North Carolina '63, has been acting as our advisor and has been and invaluable help. Six members of our colony attended the Leadership Institute in Champaign. We appreciate how helpful everyone was and we would like to thank the Illinois Chapter for hosting the conference and inviting us to their house. We also thank the delegates from Western Ontario and KansasState for their help, their friendship shown and for the laughs shared. As the fall semester began we had a grou p of 20 men we hope to bring in 30 new faces during our first full rush. If we reach this goal, we should be the largest fraternity on campus. If anyone has any ideas, helpful hints or words of encouragement, we would certainly appreciate hearing from you. We hope you will follow us and help us grow with Delta Upsilon Fraternity. Brett Goyne, Historian Max Kable, President

PROVISIONAL COLONIES Arizona State University Editor's note: Delta Upsilon has been approved for expansion at Arizona State University in the spring of 1992. The Fraternity's Provisional Colony will continue activities under the guidance of area alumni and the Headquarters staff until that time.

Denison University Editor's notc: The Fraternity continues to work with administration officials regarding the possibility ofDel ta Upsilon's provisional colony being recognized by the Denison Interfraternity Council and the University as a full colony. A decision is expected soon after the NewYear. Delta Upsilon is excited by the level of alumni and undergraduatesupport being shown towards this chapter revival. DU's Denison Chapter was suspended by the University and the Fraternity in 1984 after a series of disciplinary problems.

Florida State University Editor's notc: Work continues on gaining Interfraternity Council and administrative approval to officially colonize at Florida State University. The Fraternity continues to recognize and support a group at Florida State under Provisional Colony gUidelines.

Tri-State University The Tri-State Colony has been given university approval and is currently awaiting approval from the campus IFC. We have been attempting to work with the IFC as much as possible and we hope to have their recognition in the near future. We would also like to thank the president of our university, Dr. Richard A. Kenyon, Clarkson '54, whose gUidance and support has been invaluable. Our members are now living in the residence halls and will be doing so until final renovations have been completed on our university owned housing unit. We are very thankful to the university for they have been very cooperative in our colonization process. We are now gearing up for our first philanthropic event, which we calling "Duck Races." The "Races" are designed to challenge the engineers of Tri-Stateto design and build miniature cars, which materials we supply, to be raced on a track our members will be constructing. There has been a fair bit of interest generated for the event and we expect it to be a success. If any is in the area and would like to stop by, we would appreciate your support. Our house address is 319 South Darling, Angola, IN 46705. Jeffrey Sailor, President
