Today, we celebrate 163 years of brotherhood. On this day back in 1856, Frederick Norton Freeman and Arthur Chase held their first meeting of Theta Chi in the Old South Barracks at Norwich University.

Since then, Theta Chi has been producing resolute men all across the country, and even abroad! #foundersday #april10

Brothers Zach Sturm, Nick McNulty, Filippo Petrini and Tom Martin are on the steering committee for UMass For the Kids. This year, UMass FTK has an ambitious goal of raising $300,000 for the Baystate Children's Hospital. Sadly, Baystate Children's Hopsital does not receive any state funding. However, through the work of people like our brothers on the steering committee the kids in need can get all the help possible.

Brother Sturm on his time with Umass FTK: "Over the past year as president, and two years on steering committee for UMDM has given me so much. Every person can raise money for a charity but when you get to interact with the people you directly affect, it changes your perspective and your emotional connection with the cause in a different way. That is something that is my goal when I talk to every single person about the Dance Marathon"

***Pictured is Brother Sturm at the Baystate Children's Hospital***

As a chapter, we have pledged to raise $15,000 for UMass FTK this year. To help support Umass For the Kids, click the link below.

This past Saturday, Theta Chi proudly supported the largest student-run philanthropy on campus, UMass Dance Marathon hosted by UMass FTK (For The Kids) at Baystate Children’s Hospital. Being the highest fundraising fraternity on campus, raising $19,252, we proudly lived up to our values supporting the kids and also many of our brothers who were part of the organization including, George Liu, who is the president.

We would like to introduce our Vice President, Joe Murphy.

Joe, or as we like to call him Murph, is a Sophomore Communication major from Worcester, Massachusetts. In the future Murph’s dream job is to one day be the Mayor of Worcester.

Murph pledged in Spring 2017 and was on executive board as our chapter’s Chaplain last semester.

In his down time Murph likes to play basketball and hang out with his friend Zaheer from Big Brother Big Sister.

When asked what he is excited about this semester he said,” Being Vice President of the house, I'm looking forward to the social, philanthropic, and academic opportunities on and off campus and I'm excited to represent this house in the highest possible manner.”

As Vice President, it is Murph’s duty to write this years application for the Alter Award. The award is given to Theta Chi’s top chapters nationally, and we won last year!

Stay tuned for the rest of E-Board!

As the spring semester begins, we’d like to introduce our president, Max Nottonson !

Max is a Junior from Natick, Massachusetts. Max created his own major through the BDIC program, as he is a Fitness-Based Entrepreneurship major. In the future, he hopes to be an online fitness and nutrition coach, specifically through social media.

In his down time, Max runs a fitness account where he posts daily fitness tips and advice for his 16 thousand followers!

When asked what he looks forward too this semester, he said,”I look forward to improving this house to the best of my ability. Through community outreach I believe I can help this house have a positive impact on both UMass and the Amherst community.”

We can’t wait to see what Max does for this house and are very excited for the rest of the semester!

Stay tuned for the rest of E-Board!
