MIT Chapter Beta Nu

Delta Tau Delta is an MIT fraternity located at 416 Beacon St.

On the Boston side, our brownstone home is less than a mile, or 945.67 Smoots, from MIT's main campus.

Welcome to Delta Tau Delta at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Since our founding in 1889 the Beta Nu chapter has been a leader on campus and our brothers have gone on to be leaders around the world. Our close-knit brotherhood of interesting, hard-working men is diverse, representing a broad range of backgrounds, interests, ethnicities, and academic disciplines.

As a brotherhood, we are committed to academic achievement, leadership development, and service to others. As an organization, we are committed to teaching our members to succeed both at MIT and in later life. Alumni of our chapter often attribute many of the skills they learned at MIT to their valuable experiences as Delts.

Although personal development is important to us, we know that there is much more to life than achievement. Our social program is known as one of Boston’s best and our events range from retreats to formal cocktail parties to larger parties.

We live in a beautiful brownstone on 416 Beacon Street in Boston’s historic Back Bay. It houses impressive amenities, including a spacious roofdeck, dedicated study rooms, laundry facilities, a workout room, and a billiards room, we are fortunate to call 416 Beacon our home.

The Delt house is a place to laugh, a place to party, and a place to learn. The bonds of brotherhood formed here truly last a lifetime and connect a remarkable list of successful alumni from Fortune 500 executives to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

Coursework is a priority to us.

Here at Delta Tau Delta, we recognize that we’re here at MIT to, first and foremost, learn and grow. Our academics are of high importance and we’re proud to harbor highly talented and intelligent brothers who go on to become the greatest they can be. With brothers who span across 12 different majors, Delta Tau Delta is a diverse group of intellects that know how to take their work seriously.


Course Libraries

Over the years, brothers and alumni of Delta Tau Delta have always supported each other in their coursework. A library of course content, notes, and texts have been accumulated over the decades. These allow every brother a glimpse into how past brothers have succeeded academically during their time here at MIT. Our Course Library also contains the schedules of past brothers and suggestions by graduated seniors who would like to pass on their own personal skills to all present and future brothers.


Academic tutors

Brothers who know their course materials inside and out, are elected to provide an academic support system for underclassmen. This ensures that each brother has the resources necessary to fully understand their courses. Brothers are held to high academic standards, and are encouraged to take full advantage of the expertise of upperclassmen who have recently completed similar coursework.


Sick Bashes

These are our largest parties, which attract students from MIT, BU, Northeastern, Wellesley, Tufts, and several others. Each party has a theme that makes for a great time. Beach party, Toga, Grog, Graveyard, and Goldfish are some of the best parties in Boston. Don’t just take our word for it - ask around and you’ll hear stories. These parties are where true college memories are created. Dress to theme and don’t miss out.


Cocktail Parties

This is where we get fancy. Once in a while we host an invite-only cocktail party on our beautiful roof deck. They are more relaxing and quaint than the bigger parties, but debatably more fun. We hire a live Berklee jazz band to truly set the mood. Shirt and tie are mandatory for guys, and dresses mandatory for girls.


Mixers

Mixers are smaller parties with a single sorority. Delts have great relationships with sororities from MIT and other schools throughout Boston. To keep these relations up, we host a variety of sorority mixers each semester, each with a different feel, set-up, and theme. We use mixers to get to know the girls more personally.


Formal

Formal is another place where we get fancy. Once a semester, we spare no expense on Formal. Examples of past Formals are harbor cruises, dinners at the Top of the Hub, Blue Man Group outings, comedy club shows, and private dinners in the North End. Usually the night continues with ice-skating on frog pond or dessert at the Cheesecake Factory.


Varsity

We have a diverse group of athletes who excel at their respective sports. Brothers participate in track, swimming, diving, crew, baseball, soccer, football, fencing, and lacrosse. Several brothers have even been team leaders in their sports. Whatever the activity may be, Delts has been known to put in the most rigorous efforts to be the best they can be.


Intramural

Intramural Sports, sports played against other teams within the school, are also a big part of Delts athletics. Our favorites are ultimate frisbee, indoor soccer, bowling, softball, and football. Our team almost always signs up for league A participation, which is the most competitive league possible.
