Delta Tau Delta
Delta Tau Delta is a values driven organization. We strive to make all of our decisions based on our mission and values. Our members live by the principles of integrity, accountability, truth and courage. Building a fraternity around these values sets forth the expectations for how the fraternity will run and the behavior in the fraternity. Bringing these values into our Brotherhood allow for personal and organizational accountability and overall excellence.

135 Years of Tradition at Butler University
Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1858 at Bethany College in present day West Virginia. Delta Tau Delta was born of the knowledge that integrity is essential. The founding principles of Truth, Courage, Faith and Power have provided a guide for both the Fraternity and its membership. Since 1858 the Fraternity has spread to nearly 200 campuses with over 130 active chapters and colonies comprised of about 8,000 undergraduate members.
The Beta Zeta Chapter of Delta Tau Delta was founded at Butler University in 1878. It was established with the founding principals and it excels in all areas on campus including service, academics, and athletics.
The large granite rock serves as a directional beacon for Delts and friends everywhere to find our "shelter" on the Butler University campus. We are located at 4340 Haughey Ave. in Indianapolis, Indiana.
