What is Beta?

Beta Theta Pi is one of the oldest fraternities at the University of North Dakota. We are dedicated to building men of principle for a principled life. Our brotherhood aids the individual, builds the Fraternity, and strengthens the host academic institution through lifelong devotion to intellectual excellence, high standards of moral conduct, and responsible citizenship.

LIFELONG FRIENDSHIP – Bonded by oath and ritual, Betas form lifelong bonds of trust and friendship which are the foundation of the Fraternity’s mission.

CULTIVATION OF THE INTELLECT – Beta membership encourages individual and chapter support of the academic mission and provides opportunities for co-curricular learning and personal growth.

RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP – Betas participate in a system of self-governance, bound by trust and responsibility, which nurtures the development of social and leadership skills.

RESPONSIBLE SOCIAL CONDUCT – Beta Theta Pi is committed to standards of social conduct which are guided by principles of urbane, civil, courteous and responsible deportment.

COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY – The experiences of being a Beta encourages men to serve their university, fraternal and local communities.

Above all, Beta has absolutely no hazing of any kind. It is our stand that all members are equal and will be treated with the utmost respect.
