As the pandemic seemingly comes to an end, the chapter and greater UND community are slowly but surely coming closer to normalcy. But as we approach this more normal life, the impacts that the pandemic has had on our chapter culture makes itself clear. The pandemic was a very isolating, stressful, and unprecedented time that had a lasting impact on the wellbeing of everyone. This impact on the culture of DU has been the major focus of our new exec board from the day we took over. And we have already made major strides in reinforcing the bonds of brotherhood in Delta Upsilon.
With construction of the new house around the corner, the excitement from the undergraduates has been growing exponentially. Not only does the new house promise a more livable environment than the current house at 505 Princeton St, but, because of the collaboration between undergraduates and alumni, the new house also promises seemingly endless opportunities for development of members. Needless to say, everyone is counting down the days until we can move in.
Lastly, I wanted to thank all of our gracious alumni for not only their dedication of time, money, and effort towards the new house project, but also for the constant and endless support the undergraduates receive from you. Because of you we are able to experience the lifelong impacts that brotherhood in Delta Upsilon provides.
