We must take unprecedented steps to ensure our history, which spans more than 100 years filled with accomplishment, honor, and tradition, is preserved for the future.
Beta at Purdue has played a significant role in the personal and professional development of its members. Our alumni have distinguished themselves as leaders in their professions and communities. Much of this success is due to the lessons we learned outside the classroom in Chapter meetings and activities. The Fraternity provided a place to develop skills essential for success in today’s competitive world.
We invite you to read about the vision my fellow alumni have developed to recolonize and grow the Chapter to once again be the dominant fraternity at Purdue. As alumni of the Chapter, we have a responsibility to provide future generations the same opportunity we enjoyed— the Beta Experience.
We ask you to join your alumni brothers in an effort we believe will secure this legacy for generations to come.
We must be leaders in:
Housing – Offering the premier facility on Purdue’s campus. Through the years projects have been undertaken to update the living facilities and comply with fire regulations; however, the public spaces are in need of a major renovation. This renovation is designed to allow us to once again offer the best house on campus—a facility that is modern, efficient, spacious, and that all brothers—both undergraduate and alumni—will be proud to call home at Purdue.
Scholarship – Creating innovative programs to support, recruit, and retain the best brothers. Beta Mu must have the foresight and ability to support our undergraduate members in their fraternal and academic endeavors. The new Beta Mu scholarship plan provides up to $1,500 a year for each member provided they meet a list of criteria. This strategy has been utilized by other leading fraternities in the past, but Beta Mu is committing more resources to provide the best possible program for future Betas.
Recolonization – Establishing Beta as once again the dominant fraternity.
House Renovations $4,000,000
Chapter Recolonizing $100,000
Professional Fees $200,000
Scholarship Programs $700,000
