Following Bradley’s increased enrollment and the move from formal to informal recruitment, our chapter welcomed 49 new associate members into the fraternity. This is the largest ever recruitment class for Delta Upsilon at Bradley University. Recruitment chairs, Tom Pelarinos ’17 and Sean Burton ’17, focused on keeping the entire chapter engaged with recruitment and recruited members most reflective of our fraternity’s ideas and principles. We are proud to state that we have had a 100% retention rate of new members, boosting our overall chapter size to 100 members.

Taking 1st in Pan-fra-sing along with other greek week events, Delta Upsilon took home the Greek Week 1st place trophy. This trophy is just one of the many that Delta Upsilon has taken home over the years.

Thank you to Sigma Kappa, Phi Gamma Delta and Zeta Phi Beta for helping us win this again once more!
