Our Mission

Alpha Chi's have a strong chapter brotherhood because our philosophy is built on our chapter creed “The Beta Way”, and “three key principles”. Our chapter adopted these principles in addition to adhering to Beta Theta Pi’s mission.


Our Creed

We are young men of vision and leadership striving to improve our communities, our fraternity, and ourselves. We are committed to THE BETA WAY.
