Chapter History

Re-founded in the spring of 2015, Beta Alpha Chapter has quickly regained its recognition among fraternities at Missouri and the many Sig Tau chapters around the country. The men of Beta Alpha Chapter had a tremendous challenge ahead of them entering their first full semester in the fall of 2015 with only 14 brothers. Together with the leadership of the first executive board and the character and determination of every member, the chapter quickly rose to the challenge. With the purpose of creating a brotherhood of noble men of principle, the chapter set out to grow and make an impact. Three semesters later the efforts are unmistakable. Beta Alpha Chapter, now composed of 51 active members, has given back to the community through services, raised significant funds for its local philanthropy, True North, and its national philanthropy, Special OlympicsThe chapter has competed in Missouri’s Greek Week in 2016, proudly taking third Place with the ladies Alpha Chi Omega and the men of Beta Sigma Psi. On January 28, 2017, Beta Alpha Chapter was rewarded for their hard work, and officially re-chartered. Though proud of their accomplishments thus far, the men of Beta Alpha Chapter recognize more work is still to be done and will continue to grow and bring noble men into the brotherhood.
