Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1858 with the values of Truth, Courage, Faith and Power. The brothers at Ohio Wesleyan’s Mu Chapter continue to strive to fulfill these values through service, academics, community involvement, and a strong social presence on campus.

The diversity of this chapter is a mainstay of their brotherhood. The brothers at Delt have a strong presence on OWU club and varsity sports teams. Over the years the house has represented a diverse list of states and countries. Delt also boasts representation in WCSA and the Student Judicial Board. Delta Tau Delta holds a strong sense of family, which can be seen at lunch and dinners held within the house.

Academics are a super important aspect of the Delt experience. As a group, our brothers continue to exceed the all-fraternity average and all-men’s average at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Finally, as a part of our volunteer and community service activities, brothers spend time mentoring young students in local schools. The brothers of Delta Tau Delta encourage you to visit the chapter house and attend social and service events held throughout the year or come join us for lunch and dinner.
