Founders Day

Delta Upsilon Coat of ArmsOn November 4, 1834, thirty “all good men and true” came together at Williams College to form the Social Fraternity. Today this organization is known as Delta Upsilon, and has initiated over 125,000 men into our brotherhood, including leader’s like Brother Lester B. Pearson.

Although much has changed there are still some constants. The fall season still ushers in the cooler weather, and good men true still gather together.

Join us Tuesday, November 4th to celebrate 180 years of Delta Upsilon history. This year we will be offering two concurrent events.

C’est What, 67 Front Street East @ 6:00 pm

The Ceeps, 671 Richmond Street @ 6:00 pm

Each event promises to deliver rich conversation and a time to connect with old friends. A suggested donation of $20 for alumni brothers is encouraged.

Please RSVP to Brother Paolo Campisi for the event in Toronto and Brother Sebastian Rovithis for the event in London.
