On February 26, 2016, the Beta Theta Chapter of Delta Tau Delta at the University of the South was honored with a Court of Honor Award by the International Fraternity. The chapter was awarded this distinction at the Southern Division Leadership Conference on February 13, 2016, in Charleston, S.C. This is the first time the chapter has been honored with this award since its installation on the University of the South campus.

The Court of Honor Award was officially established in 1965. The annual award is presented to the top 20 chapters in the Fraternity. For the 2015 reporting year, all chapters were asked to submit the Fraternity Awards/Accreditation Report. Chapters were asked to provide documents that measure compliance with the Fraternity’s minimum operating standards and exceptional facets of their operations and Delta Tau Delta programming. Chapters were graded on excellence in chapter finance, recruitment, membership education, academics, alumni relations and community service.

Delta Tau Delta has 139 chapters and colonies across the United States with a membership of more than 9,500 undergraduates and 119,000 alumni members. The Fraternity posts a GPA of 3.09, making it one of the highest achieving men’s fraternities in academics.

Delta Tau Delta is a values-driven fraternity founded in 1858. Its mission, “Committed to Lives of Excellence,” is what the Fraternity seeks to represent at its host institutions. Delta Tau Delta strives to develop its members’ leadership skills, seeks superior academic achievement, promotes community service efforts, and helps its members launch successful careers.
