Lambda Iota / Delta Upsilon Fraternity

1919-2007, 2013-present

On October 28, 1919, 29 men founded Lambda Iota, Clarkson's third fraternity. On March 18, 1961 they became the 88th chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity. The fraternity occupied a house on Leroy Street and purchased the house at 30 Elm in 1922.

The chapter lost their recognition from Clarkson in 2007 and their alumni association sold their house.  The fraternity was re-colonized with 21 new Founding Fathers on September 26, 2013. Their new on-campus house at Clarkson was dedicated on April 18, 2015.

Phi Chi Epsilon Fraternity


Phi Chi Epsilon Fraternity was founded at SUNY Potsdam on October 21, 1983 and officially recognized by Inter-Fraternity Council in 1984. According to the 1988 SUNY Potsdam yearbook they had members from both schools.

At some point the fraternity started a female affiliate group, The Little Chi's, which disbanded in 1988. On November 15, 1991 a beta chapter was founded at Stony Brook University, which appears to still be active today.

On April 14, 2009 SUNY Potsdam withdrew recognition of the fraternity for "violating law and College policy."
