Epsilon Chapter of Theta Chi was established at WPI in April 1909. Theta Chi is the third oldest national fraternity represented on the WPI campus, and within our fraternity as a whole. With over 105 years of continuous operation, Epsilon Chapter has a rich history founded in traditions and brotherhood.
The chapter house at 85 Salisbury St. in Worcester has been a part of Epsilon Chapter since 1917. Through the years the house has undergone many changes to accommodate the ever changing brotherhood, as well as to keep up with the times. The house contains 31 bedrooms, capable of housing over 60 members. The maintenance of the property is managed by a non-profit alumni housing corporation, funded through alumni donations and chapter funds.
Theta Chi has a set of values that govern what it means to be a brother. As the maxim of Theta Chi is “Alma Mater first and Theta Chi for Alma Mater”, it is understood that brothers of Theta Chi stress upon the importance of academics. Education is one of many values brothers of Theta Chi hold. As fraternity men we strive to better our community and serve our country through the promotion of knowledge and advancement of culture. Theta Chi’s motto is the “Assisting hand”, which is relevant in the community service work done with organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project and Relay for Life. Brothers of Theta Chi also value the usefulness of our fraternity; we seek the benefits of not only ourselves, but of our fellow man as well.
