Culture

DelGiorno House is a social place with a character that is hard to pin down, say residents. There is a subtle, nuanced ‘cool’ factor in the halls of DelGiorno. People are free to take part in everything that makes UChicago what it is, but it is just as easy from them to strike their own path through the University. There is a vibrant House Lounge culture with TV and movie viewings, along with the typical college love of video games. Though DelGiorno will field an IM team in most sports, intramurals does not dominate the lives of those in the House. DelGiorno is known for residents who are interested in food and who might be considered ‘foodies’. Study breaks usually consist of more developed dishes, featuring salty and savory flavors over the typical sweet study breaks characteristic of most of the College Houses. Recurring House events include a trip to i.O. Theater’s Improvised Shakespeare performances, a visit to a Korean Spa with Halperin House, and bonfires at the Point.

History

DelGiorno House is named for Bernard J. DelGiorno, AB’54, AB’55, MBA’55. Mr. DelGiorno currently serves as First Vice President of Investments at UBS Financial Services. He also continues as one of the University’s most tireless supporters, offering financial support in addition to volunteering his time and service. A long-time supporter of Chicago athletics, Mr. DelGiorno directs the majority of his philanthropic support toward improving Chicago’s athletic facilities, including Stagg Field and the Gerald Ratner Athletic Center. However, he regularly makes generous contributions to the College and to Chicago Booth. He also plays an active role on the College Visiting Committee and the Alumni Emeriti Committee.

DelGiorno is the legacy House of Shoreland’s Compton House. The House mascot is the giraffe.
