Jack Belloli Wins 2020 Outstanding New Member Award

Jack Belloli, ’23

Congratulations to Jack Belloli ’23 for being named the Outstanding New Member of the Iowa State DU Chapter. Jack just completed his freshman year in the College of Engineering. He plans on majoring in Civil Engineering. Although engineering students are presented with many academic challenges as first year students, Jack was able to achieve a 3.27 GPA. His work ethic and time management skills allowed him to excel in academics while also being involved in other activities throughout his freshman year.

Jack also showed a great understanding of Delta Upsilons Four Founding Principles: Development of Character, Diffusion of Liberal Culture, Advancement of Justice and Promotion of Friendship. His willingness to challenge all members to be better, his understanding toward many issues and his kindness to all have earned him great respect throughout the Chapter.

As a member of the Chapter, Jack showed a willingness to get involved right out of the gate. He participated in Homecoming, Yell Like Hell and Greek Week. Also, because of Jack’s trust within the Chapter, he was chosen as the only freshman to be on the summer recruitment team. He will spend much of the summer working hard to bring in the next pledge class to DU. Thank you to Jack for his contributions to the DU Chapter. We look forward to seeing what you can accomplish over the next few years as a DU brother!

Joe Stanton Wins 2020 Chev Adams Award

Joe Stanton, ’20

Congratulations to Joe Stanton ’20 for being awarded the Chev Adams Award as the most outstanding senior member of the Iowa State DU Chapter. Joe has been an outstanding representative of DU throughout his time at Iowa State. He has been a member of the Exec Board as both VP of Recruitment and VP of Administration. Beyond his involvement in DU, Joe has interned at the Iowa State Research Park and Principal Financial Group. He has also started his own business, Ash Avenue Prints. His company creates customized posters for their clients. Academically, Joe graduated from the Iowa State Ivy College of Business with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. He excelled academically with a 3.70 cumulative GPA.

As a senior, many brothers choose to be less involved in the fraternity. This is not how Joe approached his senior year. He jumped at every opportunity presented to him and even requested additional responsibilities. In the fall semester he served as the Social Media Chair and was very involved in DU’s homecoming participation. In the spring semester, he served as the Greek Week Co-Chair. Outside of DU, Joe was named as 1 of 10 people on the Iowa State Homecoming Court, Cardinal Court. This is a tremendous honor for any Iowa State senior.

Through his accomplishments in academics, career advancement and brotherhood, Joe has become a model brother for Delta Upsilon. Joe doesn’t just give advice to the underclassmen, but he also leads by example. He has and will continue to be an excellent representation of what it means to be a member of Delta Upsilon even as he becomes an alumni. Thank you to Joe for his contributions to Iowa State Delta Upsilon!

DU Undergrad Update, March 2020

Alex Freiberg, Alex Hauser and Josh Anderson participated in Delta Upsilon Global Service Initiative, January 2020.

By: Andrew Arciuch ’21, Alumni Relations Chair (Former Chapter President)

To start the calendar year, the Chapter had three participants in Delta Upsilon’s Global Service Initiative (GSI). Alex Freiberg, Alex Hauser and Josh Anderson participated in a week long service trip to Jamaica with other DU brothers from across the nation.

Once the school year kicked off, the new Iowa State Chapter Executive Board was officially sworn in at the first Chapter Meeting of the semester. They’re off to a good start under Ethan Kiehne’s Presidency. One goal is to attain more Chapter Excellence Plan (CEP) Points this semester and they’re doing a great job. CEP is a list of criteria that DU Headquarters requests chapters complete each year.

The Executive Board is also working to build on their already strong brotherhood. With that in mind, the Iowa State Chapter decided to participate in a Building Better Men Retreat, which was led by Delta Upsilon Senior Director of Education Programs, Noah Borton. The brothers got a lot out of the retreat and the Executive Board hopes to use the goals established that weekend to continue to guide the chapter in a positive direction. Furthermore, sixteen brothers decided to attend the Delta Upsilon Regional Leadership Academy in Kansas City to gain more skills and refine the direction of the chapter. This leadership development opportunity not only helped the new Executive Board collaborate with other chapters to find good ideas, but it helped seven other young DUs find a direction of what kind of leader they want to be in the future within Delta Upsilon.

With many upcoming events this spring semester, the brothers are very excited about our spring philanthropy, DU Donuts. The event is hosted at the chapter facility, and people attending are served Krispy Kreme Donuts and many other sweet treats. Greek Week at Iowa State is approaching fast and the brothers of the chapter could not be more excited to compete against other Greek Week teams while being paired with Sigma Kappa Sorority and Alpha Kappa Lambda Fraternity. We hope the rest of this spring semester is fun and more successful than ever.
