Mission Statement

Founded on the principle of friendship through the mutual assistance of every member, Theta Chi aims to provide its members with an enjoyable and fulfilling collegiate experience that also prepares them for rewarding, successful lives after graduation.


Starting in 2015, Theta Chi hosts an annual Golf tournament to raise money for the USO. There are dance parties at the house periodically, traditionally starting the year with a toga party. The brothers release stress by playing dodgeball in the house's open basement.
