Gamma Alpha chapter

Gamma Alpha Chapter of Beta Theta Pi currently has 33 members (31 active, 2 pledges) who come from all walks of life. Betas excel both nationally and on the USD campus. Gamma Alpha is second to none in a variety of areas. Betas excel in academics, philanthropy, leadership roles, and athletics.

The Beta House structure is also second to none with a newly refurbished computer lab, sand volleyball court, and spacious deck. Additionally all of the  personal rooms have been completely redone and a new game room, conference room, and multimedia room have been added in the basement. The images above show the interior of the Beta House living room.

The Men of Gamma Alpha also participate in numerous social functions with other USD fraternities and sororities both on and off campus, including the annual Strollers Show.

Gamma Alpha members

The past year was full of challenges and rewards for the men of Gamma Alpha. Being just over a few years removed from our chapter's reorganization the men of Gamma Alpha are making extraordinary strides. We have added significantly to our chapter in the past year and look forward to another great recruitment effort this fall. With the redoubled efforts of our active chapter members and our alumni the Gamma Alpha chapter is poised to once again be the preeminent fraternity at USD.

We could go on and on telling you what it’s like to be a Beta but we’d like the opportunity to show you what Beta Theta Pi really means. We hope to meet you during Recruitment.
