Please join the Delta Upsilon undergraduate chapter for a Homecoming Tailgate as the Iowa State Cyclones take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday, October 26. The tailgate will begin at 10:30 AM with the game to follow at 2:30 PM. The tailgate will be located near Lot D4. Look for the DU Bus and the DU Flag. The undergrads will provide food at the tailgate. Beverages are BYOB.
Parking will be available at the DU parking lot. A few undergrads will be collecting donations for Global Service Initiative (GSI) in exchange for parking. GSI is the official philanthropy for all Delta Upsilon chapters. Additionally, the house will be open before the game if you would like to re-live some memories from 117 Ash.
We look forward to seeing you in Ames! Go Cyclones!
It is an exciting time to be a brother of Delta Upsilon at Iowa State! Last week, the Iowa State Chapter held their first philanthropy of the year, Delta Scoopsilon, and had record breaking attendance. Nearly 500 people attended and over $3,000 was raised.
Due to the philanthropy’s date landing on September 11, the Chapter decided to donate half of the proceeds for 9/11 first responders and their families through the FealGood Foundation. The other half was donated to Global Service Initiative (GSI), Delta Upsilon’s philanthropic arm. GSI is a project in Jamaica for DUs from across the country to help local Jamaican communities through hands on work. The Chapter will continue to raise money for GSI throughout the year. If you would like to support the Chapter’s philanthropy efforts, feel free to click this link to assist with the Chapter’s GSI efforts: GSI Fundraising.
The Chapter is now at its largest size since re-chartering with 98 total members. The Chapter recently finalized the Fall Associate Member class with 28 new members. If you know of any high school seniors coming to Iowa State please contact the VP of Recruitment, Alex Freiberg, at (712) 574-7432.
DU is in high gear preparing for this year’s ISU homecoming. We are teamed up with Gamma Phi Beta and Pi Kappa Phi to compete against many other teams in the ISU Fraternity and Sorority community. Events will consist of many great traditions such as Yell Like Hell, the Ames Parade, community service events and much more. The Chapter would love to see as many alumni as possible come out to Homecoming weekend.
The 6th Annual Escape to 117 Ash is in the books! It was another great weekend with over 85 alumni and undergraduates gathering in Ames to meet old friends and to celebrate Delta Upsilon.
The weekend kicked off on Friday, July 19 with a class reunion for the classes of 1979-1985. The reunion took place at Ames Country Club as alums gathered to re-kindle old friendships and learn about the current success of the DU Chapter.
On Saturday alumni and undergraduates gathered at 117 Ash Avenue for brunch before heading out for golf and campus art tours. On Saturday evening, everyone met back at the house for drinks before enjoying a dinner of steak, baked beans and strawberry shortcake cooked by house chef Darrin Miller.
The final gathering of the weekend was a brunch at the house prior to departures. It was a great weekend with lots of fun had by all! If you have not made it back to an Escape to 117 Ash weekend, please make plans to join us next year. Escape to 117 Ash 2020 will take place on July 24-26.
A special thanks goes out to John Carson ’73 for leading the charge in organizing this event and to Nick Yeo ’19 for taking the pictures seen in the album below.
