Theta Chi is a social fraternity founded in Vermont in 1856. It has been at Ripon College since 1954 when Alpha Omega Alpha, a local fraternity that began in 1906, petitioned to become a national organization. Theta Chi is dedicated to creating an environment of truth, temperance and tolerance, enabling gentlemen of the fraternity to assume leadership positions, prosper academically and form brotherhood bonds.
Beyond being a home away from home, we strive toward contributing to the campus and community. One must be a man of outstanding character based on the general consensus of current members to be admitted into Theta Chi. He also must exhibit qualities which further Theta Chi’s ideal of the helping hand. We encourage everyone to stop by and meet the men of Theta Chi.
