Creed

Written by Frank H. Schrenk, Kappa/University of Pennsylvania 1915, the Creed has become an important part of our traditions and is a public expression of our ideals and objectives as a fraternity:


“I believe in Theta Chi, its traditions and its ideals. Born of sturdy manhood, nurtured by resolute men, ennobled by high and sacred purpose, it has taken its place among the educational institutions of America as a promoter of knowledge, an advancer of culture and a builder of character."

"It inspires true friendship: teaches truth, temperance and tolerance, extols virtue, exacts harmony, and extends a helping hand to all who seek it."

“I believe in the primacy of alma mater; in the usefulness of my fraternity, in its influence and its accomplishments and I shall do all in my power to perpetuate its ideals, thereby serving my God, my country and my fellow-man.”

Our Sacred Purpose: To help people when they need it most

The highest expression of manhood and true friendship is caring for and helping others. As Theta Chis, we have been called to live out this higher purpose, to lead a more noble life, to inspire a better brotherhood. It is our Sacred Purpose.

Sacred Purpose is a movement that will do more than assist and protect members—it will help every member live his very best life. By offering programmatic support at the chapter and international levels, and by creating new leadership positions that will help us better care for and understand one another, we can live up to our highest calling.

Philanthropy

With our motto being "An Assisting Hand," it should be no surprise that Theta Chi International Fraternity is one of the foremost philanthropic fraternal organizations in the world. Theta Chi encourages its chapters to not only do work for one of Theta Chi's preferred philanthropies but to also select one local philanthropy to provide volunteers and donations for. The Delta Zeta Chapter has contributed volunteers and donations to many Omaha, Nebraska philanthropies including The Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Foundation and The Sienna Francis House.

Theta Chi's preferred National Philanthropies are:
