Making an Impact on Campus and in Local Community

The undergrads of Gamma Upsilon have certainly been busy—and successful—this year. They’ve earned respect across campus and in the local community for recruiting quality members, excelling academically, and demonstrating strong leadership.

Last semester alone, the chapter received a top five GPA on campus, won various philanthropy events and hosted several at the house, and initiated 31 new members (after narrowing down 100 recruited). In addition, several members are currently serving on the interfraternity council.

“We are always striving to grow and better ourselves as an organization,” says President Colton Rowell, “so our newest pledge class is very active, involved and well-aligned with Delt’s values.”

Looking ahead to next year, he says, “We will continue this trend next year as we move into rush, and select only the best students Miami has to offer. We plan to only bid students who are serious about their dedication to Delt’s values and their academics.”

But their success doesn’t stop with on-campus achievements. The undergrads are making an impact on the local community as well. One member, Adam Roeckl, is just one shining example. He founded the Sandwich Club at Miami University, and now, club members, including many Delts, make and deliver sandwiches to the underprivileged and hungry in the community.

As proud as he is of their academic and rush results, Colton says the true success is in the lasting bonds of brotherhood he has witnessed.

“The true legacy of this chapter is the lifelong relationships that form here,” he says. “In fact, when our alumni returned to campus to celebrate Delt’s hundred year anniversary on Miami’s campus last semester, they greeted each other with embraces and interacted as if not a day had passed since graduation.”
