Beta’s Men of Principle initiative is not a localized idea; rather it is a message that transcends cultures and can resonate on every campus. The message is simple: times change, principles do not. Entrepreneurial in spirit and ambitious at heart, we are recruiting men who believe in the mission of the organization. It is our goal to align our fraternity with the founding ideals set forth by our eight brothers in 1839. Beta’s recent success, coupled with 170 years of tradition, leadership, and commitment to excellence, has proven to be what college men today are looking for in a fraternity.
Not only are there leadership positions to hold in each chapter, but Beta is committed to developing its members into the leaders of tomorrow. In 2012, over 1,600 Beta undergraduates attended one of our award-winning leadership development programs, for example:
Beta has received 11 international awards since 1999 for outstanding leadership development programming
