Delta Upsilon chapter was the first national sorority at University of Tennessee, Martin, with Chi Omega installed later the same day. Chapter members have been leaders on campus since the beginning and are often tops in scholarship. They also are active in fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House. They sponsor a scholarship for Panhellenic honoring their long-serving chapter advisor Karen Young Wright. Other alumnae with long service records on local and international levels include Sandra Gray, Grand Council member Renee Bailey Iacona and Mary Baird Simpson. The chapter received the Golden Lion three times.
