Beta Theta Pi News and Publications
The Beta story is comprised of the achievements and accomplishments of its chapters and members over nearly two centuries. The Fraternity captures these updates through a quarterly magazine, monthly e-newsletters, an ever-increasing number of Beta books and a running digital archive – all of which create a historical record that spans generations.
The Beta Theta Pi Magazine
First published in 1872 as an eight-page monthly, The Beta Theta Pi magazine is the oldest continuously published magazine in the Greek world. Read the latest issue below, or take advantage of the more than 80,000 pages of previously published Beta lore that have been meticulously hand-scanned and organized in a searchable digital magazine archive.
The Beta Brief is an operational newsletter published monthly for chapter officers, advisors, house corporation volunteers and General Fraternity officers.
The Fraternity’s monthly e-newsletter brings together the biggest, most important stories from across the Broad Domain for all Betas and friends to see.
In 1879, William Raimond Baird, Stevens 1878/Columbia 1881, published “American College Fraternities” – the first comprehensive compendium of North American college fraternities and sororities. Five years later in a series of articles entitled “Fraternity Studies,” Baird would narrow his focus to the history of Beta Theta Pi, and in the process become the first of many prolific Beta writers to document the evolution of this Great and Good Fraternity.
