“Committed to Lives of Excellence” It’s the mission that all Delts live by. Members learn to live by certain values and the four fundamental principles of Truth, Courage, Faith and Power. But what if we had never joined Gamma Upsilon Chapter at Delta Tau Delta?
Some of our Brothers chimed in:

Dick Freeman ’56
In 1984, I was asked to speak at a Miami University Student Foundation meeting. During a Q&A session after my remarks, a student asked me "If you were currently attending Miami University, would you still decide to join a Greek Fraternity?”

My reply:
Let me ask you— where at the age of 19 are you going to experience joining a group of 100 men, running a business that includes meals for the group, work sessions to maintain the house, learn to play poker, learn that every girl brought into the House required respect, establish quiet hours for study and sleep, play IF sports against other frats and, most of all, participate in new member sessions that often went until three in the morning? Where else can anyone that age benefit from listening to everyone else’s view of what is important about another human being who wants to join your group?

I plan to attend the Delt 100-Year Reunion in October.

My life would be less full of great friends who have lasted since graduation in 1977. Forty years later, I still get together with my brothers several times a year in Florida, Ohio, Michigan and Illinios. Our wives have also become good friends and we share great adventures together. These brothers have shared my life and remain people I can count on in both good and bad times. The interesting part is that we are even better friends today than back in those years at Miami. We share a great past, but the best part is that today we continue make new memories.

Being a member of Delta Tau Delta helped me to become the person that I am today.

Whatever successes I have been blessed with, many can be traced to Gamma Upsilon in the late 1950's!

Specifically, having older brothers, especially our Korean Veterans, provided all of us with leadership examples, teamwork and study habits we had not yet fully developed.

As we approach our Centennial at Miami University, we can be proud of the brothers before and after who continue to bring 'Love and Honor' to Delta Tau Delta and Miami University.
