Beta Omicron Chapter History

The Beta Omicron chapter of Theta Chi was first established at the University of Cincinnati in June of 1942. The chapter flourished for the next few decades, but sadly had to disband in 2005.

In 2011, Kyle Parido, an active brother from Eastern Kentucky University, transferred to the University of Cincinnati. He was soon persuaded to restart the Beta Omicron chapter at UC.The organization grew quickly, and in June 2012 Theta Chi was established as a colony at the University of Cincinnati.

Throughout the 2012-2013 year, the members of Theta Chi worked Diligently to grow the organization. By the end of the school year, Beta Omicron had grown to 46 members. The colony officially applied to become a chartered fraternity on the University of Cincinnati’s campus. On May 11, 2013, 38 men went through a two-part ceremony that consisted of the reinstallation of the chapter and the initiation of each new brother. For the first time since returning to campus the Beta Omicron chapter of Theta Chi got a chapter house situated in the heart of Greek Life right across from campus at 2821 Swiss Chalet Court

Since then, the chapter has continued to grow, and currently has over 70 active members for the 2022-2023 school year. Throughout the years Beta Omicron has developed a reputation both on campus as well as with nationals as a hard-working, scholarly group of men as its members not only strive to be a more resolute but also embody the spirit of Theta Chi’s Motto, “An Assisting Hand”, every single day
