Since its founding in 1901, Beta Chapter of Theta Chi has seen over 1,200 brothers enter its ranks. Through out its history, each brother has taken up the banner of lifelong membership in the fraternity.
In 1922, the chapter moved in to its present location at 528 Beacon Street in Boston. The house recently underwent a major renovation focused on bringing the physical plant to modern-day standards. Additional projects are constantly happening to keep everything functioning well and looking good.
Financial support from our alumni makes this all possible – please visit our giving page to learn more about the renovations and how to contribute.
The alumni corporation is responsible for the ownership and upkeep of the house, and serves in an advisory role to the undergraduates. To join or learn more about the corporation and its officers, visit our corporation page.
We host regular gatherings of alumni, including our annual alumni weekend each spring, an open house during the tech reunions, and regional meetups around the country. Please visit our events page to learn more about upcoming events.
Our chapter newsletter, the Beta Button, has been published since 1916. Explore recent issues here to see what’s new!

We are always looking for additional involvement from our alumni. If you have interest in joining the corporation, and we can work with you to find a role as big or as small as you’d like. The corporation meets once a month by webconference and in person at 528 Beacon Street. To get involved, please contact us.
Typical topics covered during our monthly meetings include updates from the undergraduates, licensing and inspections, the Beta Button, updates from the Outlook Committee, and check-ins with the undergraduate chapter on risk management, finances, and more.
Each year, the alumni corporation performs maintenance and general upkeep to our beloved house. Last year, the alumni corporation replaced the hardware for the sliding doors on the first and second floors, and they now glide effortlessly. This year, we have many projects we would like to complete. We continue to work with the City of Boston to improve and renew the license for our roof deck. We also hope to refresh the carpeting in public areas, and perform a small scale renovation of the first floor bathroom.
House renovations and maintenance projects are funded through donations from our alumni. Your generosity in past years has helped to pay down the House mortgages and perform strategic maintenance to the House.
We have three ways to give to the Annual Fund:
