Beta Theta Pi

The Beta Lambda chapter of Beta Theta Pi is incredibly excited for our return to Vanderbilt’s campus this upcoming fall. As an organization, Beta Theta Pi currently has 142 active chapters across the United States and Canada and has initiated over 200,000 members since its founding. The award-winning Men of Principle Initiative has propelled Beta among the top fraternities in North America for average GPA, membership size, and the number of chapters.

Founded in February of 1884, the Beta Lambda chapter at Vanderbilt has produced over a century of Betas who are influential leaders in the Nashville community and beyond. We are dedicated to providing brotherhood and community to men of principle from all backgrounds. There is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for men at Vanderbilt to be the Founding Fathers of this restoration, backed by decades of committed alumni while creating their own unique chapter experience. Please reach out to the Office of Greek Life or Ethan Farner (Chapter Development Consultant, Beta Theta Pi) if you are interested in learning more about the Founding Father experience!
