Beta Theta Pi

Beta Theta PiBeta Theta Pi was founded on August 8, 1839 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio by eight men who united in building of a fraternity which recognizes mutual aid and assistance in the honorable labors and aspirations of life, devotion to the cultivation of the intellect, lifelong friendship and unfaltering fidelity as objects worthy of the highest aim and purpose of associated effort.

Message from the Chapter President

 

Beta Theta Pi is a group of young Men of Principle, dedicated to improving our community through philanthropy, engagement, and tradition. The Zeta Chi chapter of our fraternity was chartered in 1999 at UConn and has continually integrated into our Storrs community sever since. Beta Theta Pi has a home in our beautiful Husky Village where we can host both philanthropy and recruitment events, making us feel right at home. As far our philanthropic efforts are concerned, the Zeta Chi chapter of Beta Theta Pi is greatly involved in HuskyTHON as we raise money for Connecticut Children's throughout the year. We also raise money for the United Service Organization and each Fall put on "Beta Bowl" to help our nation's veterans.

It's a great honor of mine to serve as our chapter's President. We have a wonderful group of young men that are always there for each other which is really great to see. I have high hopes for the future of our chapter and can't wait to see what the future brings.

President: Brian Turgeon
