“I believe in Theta Chi, its traditions and its ideals. Born of sturdy manhood, nurtured by resolute men, ennobled by high and sacred purpose, it has taken its place among the educational institutions of America as a promoter of knowledge, an advancer of culture and a builder of character.”
“It inspires true friendship: teaches truth, temperance and tolerance, extols virtue, exacts harmony, and extends a helping hand to all who seek it.”
“I believe in the primacy of alma mater; in the usefulness of my fraternity, in its influence and its accomplishment and I shall do all in my power to perpetuate its ideals, thereby serving my God, my country and my fellow-man.”
-Frank H. Schrenk (Kappa/University of Pennsylvania 1915)
Theta Chi Fraternity was founded on the principle of friendship through the mutual assistance of every member. True Friendship stems from extending an "Assisting Hand" so that we may exact harmony and prevent strife among our members. This strong foundation of brotherhood unites us and is exemplified by the Zeta Xi Chapter in the following ways:
Theta Chi is not just part of the undergraduate experience — it’s for life! Being an active member provides an enjoyable and fulfilling experience that prepares one for a rewarding and successful life after graduation.
As one of the most meaningful parts of being a Theta Chi, Philanthropy allows our members to be living examples of the “Assisting Hand.” They learn more about service and the skills necessary to uplift their communities and fellow-man.
We believe in the primacy of alma mater — we are loyal students and alumni for life. Our members are leaders on campus, in the classroom, and within our local communities. It is our duty to be active participants in promoting knowledge and advancing culture.
Our motto — “An Assisting Hand” — is exemplary of the usefulness of our Fraternity. We seek the mutual benefit and improvement of all our members, solidified through our Sacred Purpose; our commitment to one another.
