Why Join Delts?

As a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), I can confidently say that joining this organization has been the best decision I’ve made since starting college. I love being a Delt because it has provided me with a sense of community and belonging that I didn’t know I needed. From the moment I walked into the house during recruitment, I knew that these were the guys I wanted to spend my college years with.

What sets Delts apart from other fraternities on campus is the strong bond of brotherhood that exists within our chapter. We’re more than just a group of friends who live together; we’re a family. We support each other through everything, whether it’s a tough exam, a personal struggle, or just a bad day. There’s always someone to talk to or hang out with, and that’s a truly special thing.

Another aspect of Delt life that I appreciate is the accountability that comes with being part of a fraternity. We hold ourselves and each other to a high standard, both academically and socially. We encourage each other to be our best selves, and we’re not afraid to call each other out when we’re not living up to that standard. It’s a level of accountability that I certainly wouldn’t have had otherwise, and it has helped me grow as a person.

In my time at Delts, I’ve made my closest friends and created memories that I’ll cherish for a lifetime. Overall, I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of such an amazing organization, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for Delta Tau Delta at IIT.

Fraternities are values-based organizations that offer young men many challenges and opportunities that a traditional college education does not. Through leadership opportunities within a fraternity, a young man can gain leadership skills that will be valuable after graduation. A member of a fraternity has an immediate support group who will become life-long friends. Joining a fraternity is more than just something you do in college. It is a commitment for a lifetime. Every generation of college students has the opportunity to distinguish itself through its actions.

And guess what? The Greek system is best at helping develop these learning experiences. It is these abilities, this learning outside of the classroom, that makes the Greek system what it is. By banding together as a group of individuals with common objectives, an atmosphere is fostered where leadership, communication, conflict management, and interpersonal skills are demanded. Out of this need springs learning, adapting, and personal growth. Fraternity life, above all the many other benefits it offers, gives you practice for life in the real world. So, when you hear a fraternity man credit his success to his fraternity, believe him.
