On April 28, 1973, the Houston Chapter became Delta Upsilon's 117th chapter. Since 1973, the Houston Chapter has had a strong sense of brotherhood and camaraderie, which has been a constant throughout its existence. It is a regular fixture in UH activities, including intramurals, Homecoming and Frontier Fiesta. In 2000, the Houston Chapter was awarded the Delta Upsilon Sweepstakes Trophy, which recognizes the top chapter in Delta Upsilon for that academic year. The Houston Chapter continues to be the consistent anchor of strength for the DU presence in Texas.
