PULLMAN, WASHINGTON, July 27, 2020 After careful consideration for the health and safety of our men by the housing corporation, advisory team, and undergraduate leadership, the decision has been made to extend the temporary closure of the Beta Theta Pi chapter house at Washington State University for all student housing throughout the Fall 2020 Semester.


Gamma Theta’s brotherhood has successfully weathered many challenges throughout its 100-year history and is prepared to move all chapter activities forward with Beta pride and confidence. The chapter is successfully adjusting to Washington State University’s recent announcement that formal recruitment week will now be completely virtual and is pursuing a virtual recruitment campaign to identify and pledge up to 25 high-quality men who share our five core values and believe in The Men of Principle Initiative.


Gamma Theta will aim to operate as close to normal as possible during the Fall 2020 Semester but in a virtual manner. We are confident in our ability to smoothly make this transition by leveraging the virtual WSUBeta System. This means that Beta’s Member Orientation Program, routine chapter and committee meetings, academic support for all pledges and members, along with ever continuing love and brotherhood development are already in place for the Fall 2020 Semester.


Finally, alumni are prepared for increasing support of the needs of the active chapter and are looking forward to resuming the Centennial Campaign and Gala Celebration efforts for August 2021. We are proud to announce that 140 Alumni donors have already committed $1,480,000, and 861 other brothers will be pursuing another $1,000,000 in commitments to complete the financing of upgrades and expansions of our great chapter house in preparation for the next 100-years of fraternal excellence at Washington State University.


We are looking forward to a time when we can have all of our members back under one roof. Until that time, stay safe, stay healthy, and lean on each other for support. Go Cougs! Go Beta!



Sincerely and Yours in ___kai___,
