Beta Theta Pi
Men of Principle
Eta Chi Chapter
Beta Theta Pi is a social fraternity that was founded in 1839 at Miami University and was brought to the University of Rochester in 2016 where it has been a key player in developing the University's community ever since. The fraternity seeks to build "men of principle" who show the core values of mutual assistance, intellectual growth, trust, responsible conduct, and integrity. Although being one of the newest organizations to Greek life at the University of Rochester, the Eta Chi chapter of Beta Theta Pi has already cultivated leaders and active participants in the university and global community. Any male-identifying, undergraduate student at the University of Rochester, or any undergraduate student of the University of Rochester who was assigned male at birth, is eligible to be a member of the University of Rochester chapter of Beta Theta Pi.
The brothers of the Eta Chi Chapter of Beta Theta Pi pride ourselves as being a fraternity that is unlike any other at the University of Rochester. Our founding fathers established this chapter to demonstrate how a fraternity should be. None of your dues go towards alcohol at parties, we never haze, and require our brothers to be actively involved in our school and city community. As a fraternity, we prioritize respecting others, along with addressing inequality and sexual assault on our campus. This is why we partner ourselves with RESTORE, who supports those who fall victim to sexual assault and violence. We seek positive change and the forging of a strong relationship between our brothers. We hope that you align with our values and choose to become a brother of Beta Theta Pi.
We are inviting young Men of Principle to join our fraternity this Fall! If you wish to join our brotherhood, come to our open rush events.
