Delta Tau Delta

An international fraternity with 134 active chapters and over 6,800 undergraduate members, Delta Tau Delta was founded at Bethany College in 1858. Delt is a guiding force that compels brothers to constantly better themselves and pursue lives of excellence through a commitment to core values, accountability, and the fundamental necessity of brotherhood.

The Lambda Chapter was founded at Vanderbilt in 1881 and currently has over 90 active members involved in over 130 student organizations on campus. We develop leaders in diverse areas all over campus from Vanderbilt Student Government to Club Hockey. In fact, Delt has had many members serve as organizational presidents around campus. The Lambda Chapter is a constantly growing brotherhood of men committed to living lives of excellence, bound together under letters of distinction, and its men have focused on continuing to make Delt the preemptive fraternity experience at Vanderbilt.

While brotherhood and academic achievement are crucial goals, we also strive to establish an identity unlike any other at Vanderbilt and give our brothers an experience that provides them with the necessary knowledge and skillsets to lead successful and fulfilling lives long after their time at Vanderbilt has come to a close. Through involvement in philanthropic events, successful social functions, academic success, and campus involvement, Lambda Chapter was honored to be awarded IFC Chapter of the Year for the 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017, and 2017-2018 academic years. Delta Tau Delta’s Lambda Chapter strives to take our fraternity experience into our own hands and consequently create for our peers and ourselves a better Vanderbilt community, and we welcome you to join us in that endeavor.
