About Theta Chi
The Eta Iota chapter of Theta Chi was formed at Newberry College on February 12, 1972. The brothers of Theta Chi are involved in a multitude of the College's Divsion II sports teams along with a variety of other school organizations such as Student Government Association, Interfraternity Council and Teaching Fellows. Theta Chi is a diverse group of young men and it is that diversity which defines them; but all brothers share the common goals of serving their god, their country, and their fellow man. Theta Chi participates in philanthropic events benefitting the USO and, locally, Boys Farm. Theta Chi hosts annual events, such as the USO Softball Tournament, visits to Boys Farm and a Low Country Shrimp Boil.
