House Rebuild Project

  • Drive to re-build the House:  in full-swing.

     

    House History

    As UT's expanded in the 1960s, the House in Circle Park -- used since 1933 -- was closed.  For 1966-67, Brothers moved into a brand-new house at 1816 Fraternity Park Drive.  Over the decades, this magnificent structure has become a landmark for all.

     

    UT Requires Make-Over

    Recently UT required all Fraternities to renovate and update their chapter houses to accommodate the standards for life-safety and living conditions.  To meet UT's renovation requirements -- we're holding a major capital campaign.

    The Challenge

    Having a chapter house that reflects the culture of Sigma Chi and the life-safety standards of UT and the state of Tennessee is paramount to the continued success of Beta Sigma.
