Fall Rush 2019

This year the Brothers of Delta Upsilon kicked off the new school year with a bang.

Through a collaborative effort of all classes and a packed rush schedule (See below) we were able to gain a rush class of 27!

Special thanks to this years rush chairs: Karan Sil ‘22, Alex Kaptur-Guzman ‘22, and Juan Valdez ‘21 for their constant hard work spearheading this rush season.

2019 Alumni Work Weekend

On July 12-14, a group of dedicated alumni and chapter members descended on our 92 year old chapter house for the 10th annual Alumni Work Weekend. Led by Dan Gibbs ’85 and Jim Ensign ’83, the group tackled the following projects:
  • Completely remodeled room B4 into a new study room. The ceiling and all walls were freshly painted. New wood-look flooring was installed. We will be adding new LED lighting and new electrical outlets with USB ports. All new furniture will be ordered later this summer for delivery when classes begin.
  • The dining room ceiling and walls were painted. Due to the ceiling design, most of the work had to be done by hand.
  • Room 10 was freshly painted and a new wood-look floor was installed.
  • The attic was given a thorough cleaning
We would like to extend a big “Thank You” to the following brothers (and one Little Sister) who helped make this event a success:

Dan Gibbs ’85
Susie Gibbs
Jim Ensign ’82
Kim Lewis ’78
Andy Homoly ’92
Walker Geyer ’78
JD Danaher ’80
John Sladek ’75

2016 DU Fall ReU

The now annual DU Fall ReUnion on 10/8/16 was a huge success with 50+ alums joining the undergrads and the 39 member strong recently pledged members of the class of 2020 at the House!  Highlights included the awarding of the Keith Ulatoski brotherhood award to Ken Hecht ’79, an overtime Illini football game, cocktails before and after the game, and limitless story telling!  Twelve members of the class of ’76 made to Champaign on the occasion of their 40th class reunion, and look forward to even stronger participation from the 77’s and 78’s in the years to come.

A special thanks to numerous alums who made very generous, and badly needed donations to the House.  Look forward to seeing one at all at the Fall ReU in 2017!
