The Beta Alpha chapter at Kenyon College was founded in 1879.

Our mission is to develop Men of Principle for a Principled Life.

During his college career, a young man finds that being a Beta means many things: respect for tradition, lifelong friendship, devotion to academic excellence, dedication to responsible leadership, commitment to community service and high standards of moral conduct. While brotherhood serves as the cornerstone of Beta Theta Pi, this lasting bond of friendship is cultivated by being a part of a group of individuals who share the same goals and values, constantly supporting each other in the pursuit of social, moral and cultural excellence.The Beta Alpha chapter at Kenyon College was founded in 1879 and has been a leading chapter for Beta ever since. The addition of the Temple in the Woods, one of only two national Beta temples, and the only remaining active Temple of Beta Theta Pi, allows the Beta Alpha Chapter to stand out on a national scale due to its longstanding traditions and history.
