A major part of building Brotherhood at Theta Xi is spending time together at events. Whether these events are major social gatherings of Actives, Associates, Alumni and guests/family at the Chapter House (Homecoming, Greek Week, St. Pat’s), smaller gatherings for local Brothers where we have hubs of Alumni and their families, or special road trips to other Chapters or other areas of interest all over the country – Brothers of the Alpha Psi Chapter of Theta Xi Fraternity enjoy getting together. We enjoy catching up with Brothers we lived with in college and the chance to get to know their families. We enjoy the opportunity to meet new Brothers who joined the house long before we started college or long after we graduated. If you are looking for details for a major social gathering, please click the drop down menu embedded in our Events link above.
Some events are focused on specific missions, i.e. recruiting new members or raising funds for our Chapter’s philanthropic causes – and all of them are designed to build Brotherhood. You can help us raise awareness (and money) for muscular dystrophy, fighting cancer, or cleaning up the environment. You can meet Brothers young and old. Our Brothers have an eclectic variety of personal interests. If you are into something, there is a very good chance one of our Brothers shares your interest as well. From demolition derby to spelunking to playing sports, to video games, to philanthropic causes. Whatever it is, you can find a Brother with similar interests.
If you are a Brother (Active or Alumni) and you know of an event coming up, please share the details at the bottom of this page and we will be sure to include them in the next issue of the Newsletter. If you have photos taken during a past event you’d like to share, please send them to Drew Davids (AΨ440) at firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the photo gallery here on our website and in the Alumni Newsletter.
A couple of examples of our smaller gatherings we have done regularly in the past are Annual Ski Trips, Float Trips, and local Recruitment events. Our Annual Ski Trips happen early in the year and historically have been in Colorado. Sometimes the members of the Active Chapter organize one with a Brotherhood/Recruitment focus before returning to Rolla for the Spring semester. Skiers and snowboarders take to the slopes during the day, and either hang out together in the shared vacation house or take in the local fare in the evenings. Everyone is responsible for their own costs for travel to the mountain, equipment rental, and lift tickets. Lodging and food costs are either shared evenly amongst all attendees or sometimes even taken care of by a local alumnus. Contact the Chapter President for details.
There has been an Alumni Ski Trip the first full week in February since . Travel, equipment rental, and lift tickets are the responsibility of the individual; and lodging/food/beverage costs are shared amongst all attendees. The location of this trip is a consensus of the attendees after the primary coordinator shops around at local ski resorts for the best lodging deals he can find. Contact Pete Russell for more details (email@example.com).
Brother Nick Ereckson has hosted an Alumni Trip the first full week in February for over ten years now. Similar logistical requirements as the Active Ski Trip (travel, equipment rental, and lift tickets are the responsibility of the individual; and lodging/food/beverage costs are shared amongst all attendees). The location of this trip has historically been to Winter Park, but Brother Ereckson shops around at local ski resorts for the best lodging deal he can find. Contact Nick Ereckson for more details (720.841.7408; firstname.lastname@example.org).

Are you a future S&T student and researching residential options? Come check out Theta Xi during your PRO Day. During most PRO Days fraternities at S&T have information booths set up in the Havener Center where future students and parents can get information on Greek Life at S&T and ask specific questions (check out our own Parents’ FAQ page by clicking the link in the navigation bar above). Information brochures and slick sheets are handed out and students and their parents are encouraged visit our brand new Chapter House for a tour. Come meet Chapter Officers, undergraduate members and even Alumni who will answer questions about the benefits of going Greek at S&T; and even the benefits of joining Theta Xi compared to other fraternities on campus. Check out what the New Chapter House is going to look like, see our building progress and even coordinate with Chapter officers to pick out your room for your first semester (Space is limited)!
