Hello Brothers of the Beta Chi Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau!

We are so excited for this year’s homecoming. We will be honoring the past & future of Beta Chi Chapter as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our chapter Re-Founding at Southern Illinois University. Without support from alumni, these past 10 years wouldn’t have been such a success, and we are thankful for you.

To make this Homecoming a special reunion for all, we are in need of your support. We have several activities that will provide memorable moments outlined in the itinerary below. We are asking each alumni who is unable to attend this year’s homecoming events to graciously donate just $5.00 to help offset costs and those willing to donate $10.00 will receive a limited edition Beta Chi koozie in the mail. Again, we thank you for your support over the last ten years.
