As was once said by Francis W. Shepardson, Denison 1882/Brown 1883, “Once a Beta, Always a Beta, Everywhere a Beta.” Whether you’re a young alumnus, Fraternal 25 or one of Beta’s revered “Silver Grays,” your membership in the Fraternity continues long after graduation. Several roles and resources are available to alumni to promote that lifelong commitment to the brotherhood.
How to Get Involved and Reconnect with Beta Theta Pi
Beta Theta Pi has more than 1,000 alumni and Friends of Beta leading its undergraduate chapters to new heights. The Fraternity is always seeking volunteers who are committed to building men of principle for a principled life directly with chapters or at General Fraternity events.
We’d love to chat with you if you’re interested in learning more about these incredible opportunities! Send an email to Chief Volunteer Services Officer Erin McHale or call the Administrative Office at 800.800.BETA.
Join an Alumni Association
Alumni associations serve as an opportunity to begin or renew relationships with other Betas in your chapter or in a geographic region. These groups also serve to provide support and guidance to nearby chapters and give back to the local community.
A number of resources specifically created for alumni associations. Contact Director of Advancement Zane Brown-Carlson, Knox ’16, or call the Administrative Office at 800.800.BETA for more information.
Engage With a House Corporation
For many, memories made while living in the Beta house are among the most cherished of their collegiate fraternity experience. Many chapters, even those that don’t currently live in a chapter home, have established house corporations for those interested in assisting with the continued development and improvement of chapter housing.
If you’re interested in learning more about chapters in need of housing assistance, contact Associate Director of Housing Colin Close, Minnesota ’13, or call the Administrative Office at 800.800.BETA.
Give to the Beta Foundation
The Beta Theta Pi Foundation raises and collects funds that are then granted back to the Fraternity to assist its mission of developing men of principle for a principled life. The Beta Theta Pi Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization which means that all gifts and donations are 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
