Theta Chi Fraternity
Iota Gamma Chapter
This chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity was rechartered in the fall of 2016 and has seen rapid growth since then. Theta Chi Fraternity is partnered with the USO as our national philanthropy. The United Service Organization helps families, past, and active military members all throughout their military career. From the time one enlists in the armed forces until even after they retire the USO helps make transitions as well as living much easier. Theta Chi helps the USO by raising money as well as supplies to be donated to the men and women who serve our country.
Theta Chi is one of the oldest men’s college fraternities in North America. Founded in 1856, more than 175,000 members have enjoyed the Fraternity’s traditions, ideals and fellowship.
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.
