What is the plan?

100th year anniversary

The 2010 year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Beta Iota Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Beta Iota was originally chartered at the University of Oregon in 1910, and was the third chapter in the Northwest Province. 

The original location of the house was on 13th and Alder, which is the piece of property that the US Bank currently sits on near the Bookstore.  The house that stood there was a beautiful three-story colonial style house that remained through the 1960’s.  The Beta Iota chapter then moved from that location in 1964, into a new house that was built on 19th and Emerald, about a block behind historic Hayward Field where it still stands today.

The centennial of Beta Iota coincides with the sixth reunion of the classes of 1954 through 1996 (held every 5 years) put on by Bob Warr. This year however, the Undergrads and alumni have teamed up to throw one large 100th Year Anniversary celebration with hopes to bring alumni and undergrads of all ages together once again.

On Saturday, September 18th, the undergraduates are planning on holding the annual Fall Alumni Tailgater during the Oregon vs. Portland State football game. Those who will attend, and do not have season tickets please contact Bob Warr.

A large banquet and chapter house festivities are also being planned but have not been finalized. Complete details on the reunion will be sent to all Beta Iota alumni, including costs for the buffet dinner (catered) at the chapter house friday night, the football game, and the hotel banquet on Saturday night.

If you have questions or would like to help out in any way, please contact any of the members on the left. We look forward to making this celebration one worth remembering for another 100 years.
