"What a few men united in object and effort will to do can be done; and more than that, such associations teach us in their records how far human friendships can carry us from the shrine of idol self."
- John Reily Knox, Of Ever Honored Memory

Mission Statement: Beta Theta Pi is dedicated to building men of principle for a principled life. Our brotherhood aids the individual, builds the Fraternity and strengthens the host academic institution through lifelong devotion to intellectual excellence, high standards of moral conduct and responsible citizenship.

Beta Theta Pi is an academic/social fraternity at East Carolina University. We strive for academic excellence, but we also organize socials with ourselves and other Greek organizations. We are highly active in intramurals as well as community service. We have won the Highest GPA award from 2002-2006 each consecutive year as well as IFC Chapter of the year in 2008. We are a relatively new fraternity on the campus of ECU, but we are growing strong and fast.

In order to join Beta Theta Pi you must have a GPA of 2.7. You must also complete the pledge process and pass the final. This is all taken care of by the Pledge Educator. For more information of the pledge process go to the Pledge Process part of the website. Once the pledge process is done, each pledge is given a roll number and a Beta Theta Pi pin *seen at the top of the page*
The Mu Class Pledges at their Initiation
On campus we are very active in intramural sports. We reached the playoffs in Basketball, Volleyball, Football and Softball. Pledges also have the option in playing intramurals. We also have several annual volunteer activities. These include Strikes for Tikes *A bowling tournament that helps raise money for children in need* and The Boys and Girls Club Haunted House *Brothers of Beta Theta Pi help set up a haunted house for the Boys and Girls Club in Greenville, NC.
