Delta Tau Delta Presents: Rocking Out for Fisher House
Epsilon Mu Chapter | Ball State University
The Epsilon Mu Chapter of the Fraternity Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1966 at Ball State University. Over the past 52 years, the Epsilon Mu Chapter has been the home of outstanding young men, from famous broadcasters to outstanding CEOs. The brothers of Epsilon Mu continually pursue excellence in academics, athletics, leadership, and service to the community, but it is the brotherhood that is the source of our greatest pride.
Delta Tau Delta was founded in 1858 at Bethany College in present day West Virginia. Born of the knowledge that integrity is essential, the founding principles of Truth, Courage, Faith and Power have provided a guide for its membership. Since 1858 the Fraternity has spread to over 200 campuses with 130 active chapters and colonies comprised of over 10,000 undergradute members. In 160 years more than 170,000 men have become members of Delta Tau Delta.
Ball State group surprises Southside girls basketball teams with new shoes
Santa came just in time for the players of the seventh and eighth grade girls basketball teams at Southside Middle School.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) granted a $1,500 donation to the two programs so they could purchase team shoes for the season.
“A reward like this really helps them stay on track, staying out of trouble and getting good grades which means a lot here,” said Erik Hoglund, seventh grade girls basketball head coach.
Jaleel Pryuer, president of Delta Tau Delta and the seventh grade girls girls basketball team assistant head coach, raised the issue to the IFC.
“The girls wanted team shoes, but their athletic program doesn’t have enough money to get everyone shoes,” Pryuer said. “I know they really wanted them, so I reached out to IFC to see if they would be willing to donate.”
With the $1,500 donation, the programs were able to buy 17 pairs of shoes for all of the players on both teams.

Excellence in Philanthropy
Raising more money than any Ball State fraternity in the first semester of 2017, Delt take a lot of pride in philanthropies. With the women of Alpha Chi Omega, we co-host the largest philanthropy event at the university: Watermelon Bust! In 2018, we earned an award in excellence for raising money for juvenile diabetes (JDRF).
Competitive Intramural Sports
Delta Tau Delta has a long history of fraternity intramural excellence. With teams in basketball, football, softball, soccer, and hockey, the ultimate goal is always a championship. Most recently, we dominated the spring basketball season while completing a perfect season and taking home a championship victory.
