Some items from our past...
Back in the day, when the undergraduate chapter was active, we had many brotherhood awards in recognition of our activities. These included:
Road tripping was one of the best parts of being in the fraternity as an undergrad. With access to any DU fraternity house in North America, once per semester a group of guys would head out to a nearby chapter.

During the 1990s, the fraternity raised $4,600 for the Montreal Children's Hospital. In recognition of our fundraising efforts, this article appeared in the hospital's Newsletter (Volume 4, Number 2, Summer 1995).
