Blog #1 Delta Upsilon Fraternity

As a human being on this planet, I consider myself a member of a vast number of communities. One slightly smaller and specific community that I belong to is the Greek community here at Mizzou. I am a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. The DU house is located on the west side of campus, but the members of the fraternity stretch all across the United States. As a member of Delta Upsilon I participate in many school and extra curricular activities including: Homecoming, philanthropies, various community service projects, and RAMS. The Greek community at Mizzou is a major part of the University community as a whole. During homecoming alone, various fraternities and sororities give back to their community by raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for local organizations.

I get information about the Greek community through email and weekly meetings at my fraternity house. Not only do I receive emails from my fraternity, but also from other Delta Upsilon houses located all over the country. By communicating with all the DU houses across the U.S., we are able to compare ideas to help continually grow and improve. Just recently my fraternity got a twitter account which alerts all active members at the university about what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is my personal favorite and most valued way of obtaining information about the fraternity.

    Does your fraternity communicate with the public also, or do you have to be a member of the community to receive community communications? For example, does your fraternity have a public web site that provides fraternity information to the public?

    Good job overall. Be sure to categorize your blog post by adding the course category (“Capstone”) and the blog assignment category (e.g., “Blog 1”). You’ve got good tags, which is good.
