NDSU’s chapter of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity received accolades during the organization’s division conference in Muncie, Indiana, Feb. 16-17. The chapter earned several awards, including the Hugh Shields Award, which is presented to the top 10 of the fraternity’s 130 chapters across the country.
Other honors included recognition in the areas of member education, road programming, philanthropy, alumni programming and ritual education.
“The multiple honors say so much about our chapter. They reflect the hard work put in by all members, and most importantly, signify that although our chapter is young, we are able to operate and compete with any chapter of any fraternity in the country,” said chapter president Hunter McMullen,a junior finance major from Fargo.“Delts at NDSU is such a special organization in its ability to help men grow in all aspects of life, from public speaking to networking to helping in the classroom – the list goes on. It feels fulfilling to be acknowledged for all that we have worked for in the past year. It means a lot to our brothers to be able to represent NDSU in such a positive light.”
The Delta Tau Delta fraternity is based on the fundamentals of truth, courage, faith and power. The NDSU chapter has 55 members and was chartered in 2012.
