Virtual Brotherhood and Support

The news surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on college campuses across North America has created a sense of uncertainty for our Beta chapter members, volunteers and alumni. Many campuses have made the decision to shift to virtual- or hybrid-model instruction for the near future. Beta’s General Secretary, Board of Trustees and staff want you to feel confident in continuing to engage as a chapter and interact with one another, even if it’s at a distance. 

Consider the topics and events below to continue engaging and involving your chapter members. Some serve as a reminder to officers or volunteers, while others are ideas for fun, virtual activities.

Do you have a great idea that you'd like to contribute? Let Director of Chapter Services Erin McHale know, and your idea could appear here!

Virtual Meetings and Special Events

Amongst the greatest of Beta Theta Pi traditions is the Fraternity's ability to create a sense of home amongst its members.

Community and connectedness aren't solely created in face-to-face situations, though.
