Why join a fraternity at all?

Fraternities are values-based organizations that offer young men many challenges and opportunities a traditional college education does not. Through leadership opportunities within a fraternity, a young man can gain leadership skills that will be valuable after graduation. A member of a fraternity has an immediate support group that will become life-long friends. Joining a fraternity is more than just something you do in college. It is a commitment for a lifetime.

Every generation of college students has the opportunity to distinguish itself through its actions. Past generations have fought wars, struggled for social justice, and put men on the moon. Today's college student is faced with a unique challenge: With so many resources within its reach, what will this generation be known for?

At Delta Tau Delta, we believe in inspiring maturity, engaging the community, and setting a positive example for those who follow.

What will your legacy look like? Whether you are a student, parent, or campus administrator, let Delta Tau Delta help you redefine the modern fraternity experience.


Lifelong learning and growth are vital. To Delta Tau Delta this is more than just a value statement. It is who we are. Delts were among the first Fraternities to include an academic officer among its board of directors – the Arch Chapter. The NorthAmerican Interfraternity Conference – the umbrella organization supporting most American fraternities – requires its members to adopt a 2.30 minimum grade point average for initiation. In 2015, Delta Tau Delta voted to require its new members achieve a 2.70 GPA prior to initiation. As has been the case throughout its history, Delta Tau Delta holds its members to a higher standard.
