Community Involvement and Philanthropy

A dedication to service and philanthropy is one of many ways in which Beta Theta Pi stands out on the Ole Miss campus. The chapter participates in numerous philanthropies and service projects each semester, ranging from small on-campus events to community-wide service collaborations.

Community service and outreach are both important core values of the ideal Beta Theta Pi fraternity man. Each member of the Beta Beta chapter completes a minimum of eight community service hours per semester, and some brothers obtain as many as 300 hours. This allows for brothers to become more connected on their campus while also giving back to their community.

In the Fall of 2014, the chapter organized the "Bark After Dark" philanthropy to benefit the Oxford Humane Society. This event, which was hosted in The Grove at the heart of the Ole Miss campus, provided Beta with a stepping stone toward hosting similar events in the future.

Looking forward to the coming school year, the Beta Beta chapter aims to create and establish a philanthropy at Ole Miss that will be geared toward becoming an on-campus staple for years to come.
