University of Tennessee-Martin
The Delta Upsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Tau began on April 1, 1982. 16 men came together to create the newest fraternity at UT Martin. These men petitioned Phi Kappa Tau and then the Inter-Fraternity Council to build their chapter. At first the group struggled to obtain the requirements needed to become a full chapter, but they worked together to build their experience. After two years they met their chartering requirements. In May of 1984 the members were initiated, and the colony became a full chapter.
The Delta Upsilon Chapter was only active for 5 years, but this group showed that men can come together to build something worthwhile. It is for this reason that we are returning to Martin.
