Mission: 

The motto of Theta Chi is to "Extend a Helping Hand." This can be from the smallest favor to a brother, to the large philanthropic donations we make as a chapter to charitable organizations. A member of Theta Chi must always strive to provide what he can to those around him, establishing a better world for himself and those he cares for. 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.

Chapter Facts: 

Theta Chi at Oregon State has stood for a century. Sigma Chapter has never been removed from campus, and it has stayed in the same house, built specifically for the chapter, since its construction in 1926.

For ten years before that, the Chapter house was the same building that now houses the Downward Dog on Monroe. Theta Chi is the second oldest fraternity on campus.

Philanthropy: 

Here at Oregon State, we put on two philanthropies per year.

During Fall Term, we host the Theta Chi Olympics, a philanthropy that raises money for the Heartland Humane Society. In the Spring, we host Theta Chi's International Philanthropy, GI Theta Chi. Theta Chi began its partnership with the USO (United Service Organizations) in 2013, making it the Fraternity's official philanthropy. Each chapter is expected to raise at least $1,000 for the USO per academic year and participate in Operation Military Red, a fundraising and service competition between chapters of Theta Chi. In the 2014/2016 biennium, Theta Chi chapters reported raising

$302,937.68.68 for the USO, with 41,371 man hours in volunteer service.

Originally founded in a military setting, Theta Chi strives to support our soldiers, veterans, and their families by donating yearly to the United Service Organization (USO), an organization that provides goods and services to those veterans, troops and their families that are in need. We take this very seriously as without their incredible sacrifices, we would not have the opportunity to be part of a collegiate experience like this.
