Since joining Butler University in 1878, the brothers of Beta Zeta chapter of Delta Tau Delta have lived by our mission statement – Committed To Lives of Excellence. In everything, our brothers strive to lead boldly, serve humbly, and set a positive example for those who follow. Our core values of Truth, Courage, Faith, and Power are the foundation of our brotherhood and guidelines by which a Delt lives his life.
At Delt, we push one another to achieve previously unthinkable heights. Butler’s 2017 – 2018 student body president is one of our seniors. Beta Zeta had the #1 ranked treasurer for all Delta Tau Delta chapters in the world for 2016. Seven of Beta Zeta’s juniors and seniors were recognized in the top 100 students at Butler University for the 2016 – 2017 academic year. Butler’s Greek Man of the Year and Greek Male Emerging Leader were our 2016 and 2017 presidents, respectively. Excellence is a high pursuit, and our members strive tirelessly for it.
Beta Zeta is proud to have been ranked in the top-ten Delta Tau Delta chapters in the world for the past four years. We consistently win awards both from Butler and from the national fraternity for leadership, philanthropy, and more. We pride ourselves as leaders in Butler’s Greek community and for Delt chapters in the region. To many, Beta Zeta’s strength is widely known and respected.
With 100 active brothers in the fall of 2017, Delt is the largest fraternity at Butler. We are proud to have 100% of our brothers involved in a campus organization besides Delt, with 40% of our brothers holding a leadership position at Butler. All six colleges are represented by our brothers, with aspirations ranging from top-ten law schools to using ballet as movement therapy for children with autism. Our sophomores and juniors have a newly-renovated 20,000 square-foot mansion they call home, known as the Shelter.
Delta Tau Delta is much bigger than any brother, and collectively, we are able to achieve great things. For the 2016 calendar year, our brothers averaged 16.4 service hours per man. Over $45,000 was raised across the three philanthropies that Beta Zeta supports for the 2016 – 2017 school year, bringing about funding for type 1 diabetes research, ALS research, and children’s health.
Each year, we look for men whose ideals align with ours to join our brotherhood.
