Every month, the brothers of Theta Chi - Iota Gamma recognize a member for exemplifying the key characteristics of a Theta Chi through their actions. From extending a helping hand to someone in need, excellence in the classroom, or going the extra effort to serve the fraternity; this individual has gone above and beyond to perpetuate our ideals and truly show what it means to be a Theta Chi. For the month of February, Theta Chi – Iota Gamma would like to recognize Cameron Meyer for his devout scholarship and excellence in the classroom. Recently, this deep dedication to learning has resulted in Cam's acceptance into GVSU's postgraduate program. Congratulations Brother Meyer!

Happy Founders Day to Norwich University!

194 years ago, Captain Alden Partridge founded The American Literacy, Scientific, and Military Academy on August 6, 1819 in Norwich, Vermont for the cause of military and scientific education and the development of a citizen-soldier. His school was the first private military college in the United States, and the first college in the country with a primary focus on engineering.

Happy Founders Day to Theta Chi Fraternity's Alma Mater!

Our founding father's badge. It is such an amazing feat after 157 years, this fraternity stands stronger and stronger every day, but the values of Theta Chi still remain the same. Love and Respect to all of the brothers out there.

June 9,1856: The Members of Theta Chi Society wear the Badge in public for the very first time. 157 years after its debut, it still looks good!

"I am the badge of Theta Chi.
I was born among the granite hills of Vermont.
I am as old as the ideals of humanity.
I am everlasting youth.
I am the symbol of the Fraternity.
I am the two Greek letters, Θ and Χ.
My constitution is pure gold.
I represent truth, honor, character, strength, achievement.
I cannot be given away.
I cannot be exchanged.
I cannot be sold in barter or in trade.
Once accepted, I remain a possession forever.
I am worn over the heart.
My intrinsic value cannot be estimated.
I am treasured, cherished, honored.
My influence continues throughout life.
I am proud of my patriotic devotion and service.
I shall remain always undivided in my loyalty and allegiance to my flag—my country.
I am the badge of Theta Chi.”

General information

I believe in Theta Chi, its traditions and its ideals. Born of sturdy manhood, nurtured by resolute men, ennobled by high and sacred purpose, it has taken its place among the educational institutions of America as a promoter of knowledge, an advancer of culture and a builder of character. It inspires true friendship: teaches Truth, Temperance and Tolerance, extols virtue, exacts harmony, and extends a helping hand to all who seek it. I believe in the primacy of Alma Mater; in the usefulness of my Fraternity, in its influence and its accomplishments and I shall do all in my power to perpetuate its ideals, thereby serving my God, my country and my fellow-man.
